KARL MAYER MALIMO to exhibit MULTIAXIAL at Techtextil

KARL MAYER, and especially KARL MAYER MALIMO Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, are among the innovators in the technical textiles sector and are therefore almost compelled to exhibit at Techtextil. The company is building extremely successful machines for the production of a wide range of textiles and opens up additional end-use areas for the functional materials.

Examples of this are machines for the production of bi- and multiaxial ply structures. These textiles which have enormous strength are made from high-performance fibres such as carbon, glass or aramid and form the basis for fibre-reinforced composites. The web structures, which are bonded by thermosetting or thermoplastic means, are used mainly in lightweight constructions, e.g. as car body parts and aircraft components, rotor blades for wind power plants, materials for sportsgoods, moving parts for machines, and also in the building sector. Here they are used as reinforcing components for textile-reinforced concrete, amongst other things.

In view of the rapid upward trend in the composites sector, and particulalrly because of the high growth rates in the wind power industry, KARL MAYER MALIMO has intensified development work in the MULTIAXIAL machine sector. The result is the highly innovative Maltronic MULTIAXIAL, which was introduced to the market for the first time at the JEC in March.

In addition to the MULTIAXIAL machine, the RS 3 MSUS-V web raschel machine has proved to be a genuine bestseller. This machine with magazine-weft insertion turns high-performance yarns into grid structures or all-over warp-knitted fabrics and, if required, integrates nonwovens into the structure. It does not matter whether basalt, polyester of polypropylene are used – the range of materials employed knows no limits. Even if thick, high-strength materials such as glass fibre rovings are used, reliable machine operation is ensured by the tuned interplay of robust drives and strong knitting elements.

In addition the RS 3 MSUS-V also ensures gentle yarn treatment, high production rates and flexibility in configuring the stitch density. Further highlights from KARL MAYER are web forming machines such as the MALIWATT, MALIVLIES, KUNIT and MULTIKNIT. The textile products manufactured by this high-performance technology are particularly well established in the automotive textile sector. Examples of their use are in hat racks, roof linings, seat covers and sub-upholstery materials, insulating materials, boot linings, and backings for adhesive tapes, where they offer a great deal of chic and comfort.

In addition three-dimensional materials produced on KARL MAYER double-bar raschel machines are increasingly finding technical end-uses. The modern HighDistance from KARL MAYER can today produce spacer fabrics with a thickness of up to 60 mm. The revolutionary features of these high-performance textiles are an end-contour-true shape and a workpiece-like character, which means that they can be used immediately after finishing.
