Karl Mayer will showcase warp-knitted textiles having exceptional level of performance at Techtextil 2019 in Frankfurt from May 14-17. Textiles with excellent performance and lower manufacturing costs can be produced by combining possibilities of additive production with warp knitting technology. Examples include warp knits functionalised by 3D printing.

Karl Mayer has grouped together all its activities relating to the use of new technologies and innovative products under the concept of Rapid Textiles. These products with integrated electrical conductivity and shaping characteristics form part of the Textile Makerspace system, an extremely efficient textile solution for protecting buildings, and a completely new generation of warp-knitted spacer textiles, said Karl Mayer in a press release. Rapid Textiles will be part of the Techtextil show.

Electrically conductive textiles are a hot topic at the moment and can be produced in a variety of different ways. The easiest method is to directly incorporate conductive yarns during fabric production on the machine. Textile Circuit, another element of Textile Makerspace, shows the potential of warp knitting. Conductive zones offering maximum flexibility in terms of geometry, dimensions and location can be produced on Karl Mayer’s multibar raschel machines. Examples include inductive charging stations and the remote control of robots, and these are being demonstrated at Techtextil.

Double-bar raschel machines have become firmly established in the production of warp-knitted spacer textiles featuring a variety of designs. A new model is now enabling completely new designs to be produced, i.e. warp-knitted textiles with decorative, relief surfaces. Instead of the spacer layer, three-dimensional design elements are worked on the upper and lower sides. The designs can be shaped and positioned almost without any restrictions, and can be combined with openwork designs. This is opening up a new dimension in near-net-shaped production in particular.

Security panels made from weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles – efficient cut protection for buildings and vehicles. Burglars frequently use chainsaws and drills during attempted break-ins, but they can be stopped effectively by a new type of patented security panel with weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles in the core. On contact with the cut-resistant textiles, the rotating tools quickly release large amounts of fibres from the material. These become entangled and the tool is stopped. The highly effective security panels are also very light and can be applied very easily to security doors, armoured vehicles, vaults and cash machines.

Karl Mayer is also inviting people to attend an in-house show, to be held at the same time as the fair, at its headquarters in nearby Obertshausen.  Karl Mayer has grouped all its digital solutions under the KM.ON brand, and will also be showcasing this system on its stand at the Techtextil.

A model in the new Racop-NW series will be demonstrated at an in-house show in Obertshausen. This efficient nonwovens machine produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs, a technology that offers many advantages. This process produces nonwovens having textile characteristics, such as elasticity and voluminosity, which is not the case when using chemical bonding agents. Furthermore, much less energy is consumed compared to thermal processes. In addition to these general advantages, the new Racop-NW model also offers an exceptional cost: benefit ratio. It is also extremely flexible and can be used in a variety of applications. A Racop-NW, 160", gauge E 14, will produce a textile for the application area heating textiles at the in-house show. (PC)
