KARL MAYER's answer to difficult times is to come up with new innovations – as shown at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008

KARL MAYER's representatives were well-prepared and travelled to Shanghai ready to present the company's latest innovations at the ITMA ASIA + CITME trade fair, which was held from 27 to 31 July 2008.

The latest developments and modern image presented by this world-famous textile machinery manufacturer were received with great interest by the visitors, which strengthened its position as a reliable partner and as a technology and market leader. Representatives of the KARL MAYER Group had many conversations with the visitors, discussed specific projects, and signed several sales contracts at the fair.

Many Chinese customers, mainly from the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang and Jiangsu, paid a visit to KARL MAYER's stand, and many promising new contacts were also made.

The first two days of the fair were the busiest in terms of visitor numbers. Many manufacturers took advantage of the dates to attend the opening celebrations of the company's new premises at KARL MAYER (CHINA) Ltd on 26 July, and combined the trip to Wujin with a chance to visit the trade fair in Shanghai.

KARL MAYER impressed everyone with its exceptional machine show, the high-tech design and layout of its stand, and the expertise of its representatives in providing information and advice.

Warp-knit goods and specials
For more than a year now, KARL MAYER has been pursuing a well-thought-out dual product line strategy. The first two machines in the twin product line strategy, a high-tech machine and a basic version, were presented at ITMA 2007 in Munich, and consisted of an HKS 3-M equipped with CFR (carbon fibre reinforced plastic) components and a TM 3.

One year later, this world-famous manufacturer was showing its complete range of two-bar warp knitting machines as part of its dual product line strategy, i.e. an HKS 2-3 E and a TM 2 with carbon-fibre-reinforced components, in the showroom of its Chinese subsidiary, as well as an HKS 2-3, also equipped with CFR components, at ITMA ASIA + CITME.

During the trade fair, the machine was producing a stretch, three-stitch, hexagonal tulle in a gauge of E 32 and a working width of 180" and everyone was impressed by its exceptional speed. Both the admirers of the machine, and even those who were more grudging in their praise, were amazed at the speed of 3,100 min-1, which is unrivalled on the market. Several buyers were immediately interested in acquiring the high-speed machine on show at the fair. Several contracts to supply the machine were signed, and new projects were initiated during the course of the exhibition.

Manufacturers of automotive textiles and stretch goods for the underwear and sportswear sectors in particular were impressed by the performance of the new HKS 2-3 since, in addition to a 25% increase in speed compared to conventional machines, the HKS 2-3 operates quickly and accurately within a temperature window of from +/- 2º to +/- 5ºC, without the need to adjust the needle tool or reduce the speed - such as if a long machine stoppage has occurred, for example.
