In Germany, a pioneering spirit is rewarded by success on the market and is recognised by being awarded prizes. One recent example of this is that the German Industrial Association for Yarns, Fabrics and Technical Textiles (Industrieverband Garne-Gewebe Technische Textilien e.V. (IVGT) awarded a prize for innovation to the Warp Preparation Division of KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH.

The world's leading manufacturer of warp knitting machines incorporated warp preparation technology for warp knitting into its production programme in 1950. In 1991, the company turned its sights to warp preparation for the weaving sector, and thus began the logical expansion of its development and production capacity to cater for this entire sector.

Important stages in this expansion programme were the acquisition of Rotal Srl, Textrol Inc., the Sucker-Müller operation of Moenus Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH and the company, Ira L. Griffin, as well as the signing of a contract to cooperate with Texkimp Ltd.

The production area of KARL MAYER's Warp Preparation Division in Obertshausen now covers an area of 10,000 m2 and, together with KARL MAYER Rotal and Sucker Textilmaschinen, and including some production in China, generates a turnover of roughly 55 million euros per annum.

Alongside Benninger, this company is one of the biggest producers of warp preparation machines and equipment on the world market. The hallmark of this successful branch of the KARL MAYER Group is that it offers complete systems that are tailor-made to suit individual end-uses, and constantly focuses on developing new and better technical solutions.

The innovative work of this active branch of the company attracted the attention of the IVGT's Technical Weaving Committee at ITMA 2007. This steering committee for technical developments regularly visits the main international textile machinery trade fairs, draws up a list of the latest innovations based on the principles of the equipment on show, evaluates and analyses them, and awards an innovation prize for the best achievements. The prize is awarded every four years in conjunction with the Deutscher Fachverlag (specialist/technical publishers).

The jury was faced with a huge array of prize-worthy exhibits on KARL MAYER's stand at ITMA 2007. In line with its strategy of supplying 'the right automatic warp preparation machine to suit every warp length that has to be produced, this world-famous manufacturer was showing the new GOM 24 sample warping machine for producing sample and production warps in lengths of up to 1,050 m, and the new Nov-o-matic automatic section warping machine for producing short warps and production warps in lengths of up to 2,000 m.

The Accutense yarn tensioner has also been setting new technical standards since the ITMA exhibition in Munich. A new beaming machine with numerous optimised features and equipped with beams having RFID transponders was a world first and was extremely impressive.
