TM 2 extends KARL MAYER's twin product line strategy

Nov '08
The KARL MAYER Group is applying a multi-pronged approach to successfully target the market with its twin product line strategy.

The HKS 3-M three-bar tricot machine with carbon-fibre reinforced components and the TM 3 are the first two high-performance machines to be available as a high-tech version and a basic, lower-priced version. This new machine concept, which was unveiled at ITMA 2007 in Munich, was received with great interest and has been selling particularly well since then on its target markets. This is why the company decided to follow up this successful series with other types of machines.

Concept of the TM 2
The TM 2 is based on the new TM series, in which the TM 3 has already proved to be particularly successful. The key element of this new strategy is a system of modules, whose functions have been developed and perfected by KARL MAYER's developers and engineers with their extensive know-how, and which are produced in accordance with the company's strict quality standards. The modules can be combined along the lines of 'building blocks' and offer a number of advantages.

These include top quality and thus a long service life for a high operating reliability, efficient management of all the spare parts and, above all, economical production; the company's customers have been able to gain maximum benefit from all these features. The TM 2 may be up to 25 % cheaper than a comparable HKS 2.

Technical features
This flexible newcomer is available initially in working widths of 180" and 186" and in gauges of E 28 and E 32. It is in the same series as the TM 3 and offers the same, fairly limited optional features. These relate, for example, to the type of batching system, the functions of the feeler roll, and the yarn monitoring system.

Further technical features of the TM 2 include electronic beam drives, electronic fabric take-down and a simple KAMCOS operating facility with touchscreen.

The TM 2 offers the same performance features as the HKS 2, i.e. a speed of up to 2,500 min-1, the production of exceptionally high-quality products, and a high degree of flexibility and user friendliness. These performance features have been achieved by cleverly combining the old with the new, i.e. by using tried-and-tested components that have proved themselves over many years with newly developed components, and by using components from the TM series that have already been used successfully in practice.

Target groups
The TM 2 has been designed mainly for the Asian and especially the Chinese market. The two-bar basic machine became a bestseller here as soon as it went into mass production, and proved to be particularly attractive to manufacturers of mattress covers, velour soft furnishings and laminated fabrics.

This new production machine can also efficiently produce a range of non-stretch fabrics for fashion wear and semi-technical applications, such as mosquito nets, tulle, shoe fabrics, and textiles for sportswear and outdoor clothing. These features mean that this flexible warp knitting machine is a 'must have' for all those manufacturers who want to gain a foothold in the warp knitting sector, or for those who would previously have probably bought second-hand machines.

As of 2009, the TM 2 will also be available with extended configurations on the world market.
