Karl Mayer to astound everyone with Malitronic Multiaxial at JEC
Malimo Multiaxial machine
The JEC Composites Show will be open for business from 24 to 26 March on the Paris Expo exhibition site, Porte de Versailles. This show is the largest and most important exhibition for the composites sector, and consequently for fibre-reinforced plastics – markets which are expected to generate a great deal of business in the future.
The world-wide strategy of promoting sustainability, and especially the increased use of renewable energy sources, should ensure that composite materials will continue to enjoy rapid growth rates well into the future. The wind power industry alone recorded a growth of 30.5% between 2006 and 2007 in response to the increased need to preserve resources and protect the climate.
The number of visitors attending the JEC Show mirrors this trend. 1,053 exhibiting companies and 27, 000 visitors meant that the 2008 exhibition achieved record attendance figures, and the organisers are expecting that this year will be at least as successful. Participating in this leading trade fair for the sector is an absolute 'must' for the big manufacturers and KARL MAYER Malimo is no exception.
This Chemnitz-based subsidiary of KARL MAYER is renowned for its high level of innovation and one of the organisations it works closely with on its new developments is the CETEX Institut für Textil- und Verarbeitungsmaschinen gemeinnützige GmbH (CETEX Non-profit-making Institute for Textile and Processing Machines). The two companies are exhibiting on a joint stand in the German pavilion at this year's JEC Composites Show.
KARL MAYER will astound everyone with its new machine. As a result of the rapid growth of the composites industry and especially in view of the developments taking place in the wind power sector, this experienced manufacturer has stepped up the development work on its multiaxial machines and is now launching the highly innovative Malitronic MULTIAXIAL machine onto the market. This generation of machines is to be unveiled for the first time at the JEC Composites Show and with its completely new concept, offers a level of performance that has never been achieved before in terms of its productivity, handling and fabric quality. Compared to conventional production technology, this package of advantages is well worth taking a look at!
KARL MAYER's representatives will be happy to talk to you on the stand in the German pavilion.
As well as KARL MAYER Malimo's exhibits, detailed information on CETEX's activities and services is also available on the stand, and these include the development of solutions and projects for the efficient production of structures for fibre-reinforced components. The institute is particularly concerned with the design of fibrous structures, the subject of hybrid materials made from thermoplastic prepregs and the development of a process for producing dry UD materials. The range of activities and services is rounded off by a review of the possible applications, including the aerospace industry, the wind turbine sector, car and vehicle manufacturing, and civil engineering.
