Efficient machines and a high level of expertise are a guarantee of success on markets experiencing rapid growth and dynamic business cycles – and the warp knitting sector is no exception.

The textile machinery builder, KARL MAYER, therefore not only supplies its clients with modern tricot and raschel machines, it also provides them with information on warp knitting, which is targeted to suit specific user groups.

This innovative company has set up the KARL MAYER Academy, which specialises in well targeted knowledge transfer. This training centre is based at the company’s headquarters in Obertshausen and also has branches in India and China.

KARL MAYER is constantly expanding and improving the range of courses it offers in order to cater for the changing conditions on national markets. The qualifications currently on offer and the changes that have been made recently will now be presented.

The KARL MAYER Academy India

KARL MAYER’s own training centre in Surat was opened in June of last year and has been well received by the company’s clients. 51 trainees have already attended courses during the first eight months of this year – a figure that is likely to rise in the future. An extended range of courses is available to Indian customers as of now.

The new programme includes two new basic courses aimed at specific target groups, i.e. one on lace and fabric analysis and one on maintenance and repair of the machines. The KARL MAYER Academy India offers the following training courses:

Warp Knit Basic Course (WKB) – 7 days

The basic warp knitting course is tailored to the current requirements of newcomers to warp knitting and provides basic information on warp knitting technology. The main topics covered are the basics of stitch formation, fabric construction and lapping technology, calculating yarn run-ins, and fabric analysis. A basic understanding of the mechanical principles of warp knitting is also developed.

Operators’ Course – 3 days

This course is aimed at machine operators with no previous technical knowledge. During the course, the newcomers to warp knitting will learn how to call up the functions of tricot machines and what tools are needed to operate the machine.

New: WKB-Technicians – 5 days

This additional basic warp knitting course is held under the motto of “hands on – getting to grips”. This new course is aimed at technicians. They will be given practical technical information on the technology, the adjustment procedures and the handling of tricot machines. The topic of textile technology will also be outlined.
