2010Lightweight components and a twin product line strategy – optimised concepts to suit every requirement - ITMA ASIA+CITME 2010, held 22 to 26 June 2010 in Shanghai.

KARL MAYER's successful policy for its warp knitting machines is based on lightweight constructions and a twin product line strategy – an arrangement that is specifically designed to meet the requirements of the market. The machines equipped with CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic) components offer a unique performance profile, and the strategy of making both basic as well as high-tech machines available gives the company greater access to a broader client base.

The results of the company's efforts to constantly optimise its products were on show at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2010, where KARL MAYER was displaying the first raschel machine equipped with CFRP components and a high-speed tricot machine, which is already benefiting from the advantages of 2nd generation of CFRP technology.

Other highlights on KARL MAYER's stand at ASIA+CITME 2010 were a machine in the Seamless Smart range, a JL 59/1B, both in exceptionally high machine gauges, and the KAMCOS Explorer for producing a basic MDE system.

The latest innovations in double-bar raschel machines were also on display at an in-house show held at KARL MAYER's subsidiary in Wujin in the run-up to the fair and also during the exhibition itself. This event was held from 16 to 21 June and, as well as showing a new, basic HighDistance machine, was also demonstrating the new RD 6/1-12.

The first raschel machine equipped with CFRP components
The new RSE 4-1 is the first machine in its series to feature lightweight technology. The package of optimised features includes the use of CFRP components in all the bars, and solutions for improving the stability to lateral distortion in the needle zone. The basic design as well as specific details of the machine were also adapted to suit the higher dynamics.

The result of changing over the RSE 4-1 to incorporate these lightweight, stable, fibre-reinforced plastic components is that the temperature window for reliable, trouble-free operation has been extended from +/- 2 °C to +/- 7 °C, and the weight of the bars has been reduced by as much as 25 % - and this has resulted in an exceptionally high productivity rate.

Throughout the exhibition, the RSE 4-1 (170", E 32) with its high speed of up to 2,600 min-1 caused quite a stir. The high-performance raschel machine is already one of the best-selling machines in KARL MAYER's product range, and was in great demand during the fair.
