Karl Mayer participated in the VDMA symposium and held its Tricot Circle event in India. The VDMA conference titled ‘German Technology meets Indian Textiles and Nonwovens’ took place on May 15 and 16, 2018 in Mumbai. Tricot Circle events showcased latest developments in warp knitting on May 17, 2018 in Daman and on May 18, 2018, in Amritsar, in India.

The VDMA Symposium in India included 36 application-oriented papers presented by more than 30 well-known companies. Karl Mayer displayed its TERRY.ECO concept for warp knitting. This system for the ecological and economical production of terry goods went down well with the visitors. There were about 100 delegates in the auditorium, including many representatives from weaving companies.

The third Tricot Circle held by Karl Mayer was well attended by just under 135 delegates. The focal topics of the event were the possibilities offered by high-speed tricot machines for designing a wide variety of apparel fabrics and for producing terry goods. Many warp knitting companies in India are concentrating on producing embroidery grounds and simple fabrics for saris. However, the HKS 4-M EL can do so much more than that, as Klaus Schulze showed in his lecture. This specialist in textile product development at Karl Mayer demonstrated various transparent fabrics featuring different mesh patterns in the ground and superimposed geometric designs produced by the versatile HKS model.

A new collection of designs produced on the HKS 3-M also attracted a great deal of attention. The lightweight, voile-like fabrics were particularly eye-catching, thanks to their fine, transparent ground and dense, striped pattern blocks, and gave the visitors ideas on how to use the potential of their machines even more effectively. The HKS 3-M is already extremely well established in India.

As another highlight, Klaus Schulze demonstrated the possibilities of producing warp-knitted terry fabrics. The TM 4-TS EL is particularly interesting for this textile nation. The delegates were also interested in a paper describing a beach towel made from a double-face fabric with a cotton side for drying and a side made from polyester microfibres with cut-open loops and a colour-printed design for lying on.

Other topics also generated great deal of interest and raised many questions, including innovative textile products manufactured on the HKS machine range for the athleisure sector, intelligently designed, stylish RSJ fabrics for sportswear and leisurewear, and Karl Mayer’s virtual showroom. (GK)
