Karl Mayer attracts huge number of visitors at India ITME
December 20, 2016 - Germany
Karl Mayer, Germany’s leading textile machinery company, received positive feedback and managed to attract a huge number of visitors at the recently held India ITME 2016, a leading international textile machinery exhibition, held at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, NSE Complex, Goregaon, in Mumbai, from December 3 to 11, 2016.
There was a great deal of interest in warp knitting among large companies operating outside the sector. Specific projects were also discussed with some representatives of leading conglomerates.
The tricot machines on show were sold at the fair itself. For producing warp knits, Karl Mayer was showcasing the fourth generation of the high-speed HKS 3-M, with its modern design, and the HKS 4-M EL machine, which is as versatile as it is productive. The four-bar, high-speed tricot machine was demonstrating the advantages of its EL control facility.
In addition to the production possibilities offered by the machines on show at the fair, equipping them with the LEO system as standard was the subject of many conversations. LEO is a well-thought-out technology for saving energy and costs. There were also many enquiries regarding the production of stretch raised fabrics, warp-knitted terry goods and velour.
For those visitors who were focusing on progress and innovation, a wide range of multibar lace featuring new bourdon cord designs and a variety of looks produced by block multi guides were available. Lace fabrics, either as stand-alone fabrics or else made-up into stylish outfits, invited people to come and touch them, develop new ideas and ask questions. The presentation of the new LACE.EXPRESS machine series proved to be a real magnet for the public.
Karl Mayer’s Warp Preparation Business Unit also got good feedback on the machines it was showcasing. The PROSIZE was also the subject of many discussions. The key feature of this sizing machine for processing staple-fibre yarns, the Size Box, generated a great deal of interest owing to its exceptional productivity.
The new ISOMATIC machine also attracted a great deal of attention. This new, performance-optimised, short-warp warping machine for standard applications was developed especially for the Indian market, and the visitors were impressed by its excellent cost:benefit ratio.
Karl Mayer rounded off the presentation of its machines and products by showcasing its 360° technical support service. By utilising the latest components of online communication, this comprehensive service concept provides even more user benefits and machine efficiencies than ever before. The digital innovations mainly include the Karl Mayer CONNECT app and the Karl Mayer SPARE PARTS WEBSHOP. Demonstration versions of both systems were being tested live at the show.
Many Indian companies have also registered for the Karl Mayer SPARE PARTS WEBSHOP. The intuitive handling features and possibilities offered by this online platform for buying the required spare parts easily have impressed both the market and the trade visitors. (GK)
