Karl Mayer displayed an innovative range of technology and textile machinery at ITMA Asia + CITME expo. The international textile machinery exhibition was held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. Karl Mayer is a leading textile machinery company headquartered in Germany. The company welcomed around 760 visitors during the trade show.

Roughly 300 participants also visited the in-house show at Karl Mayer China, which was held at the same time. The visitors showed interest in the products on show, however, they are holding off on making new investments, Karl Mayer said in a media statement.

The highlight of Karl Mayer’s presentation was the company’s demonstration of its digitisation strategy: the launch of the company’s own digital brand, KM.ON, and the presentation of the associated digital solutions and the Karl Mayer Digital Factory, the start-up behind KM.ON.

Another focal point of Karl Mayer’s presentation were systems concentrating on greater sustainability during production, under the heading of Cleaner.Productions, and these were also a great success.
The possibilities of replacing weaving with warp knitting quickly became a magnet for the public. Both weaving and warp knitting companies were also interested in the TERRY.ECO for the environmentally friendly production of terry goods. For producers of woven terry fabrics, Karl Mayer was showing its PROSIZE – a sizing machine with less size, energy, and effluent during production.

The highlights for the warp knitting sector were tricot machines with three guide bars. An HKS 3-M, 280” and a TM 3 were being shown. The extra-wide HKS 3-M was producing a velour fabric in a gauge of E 32 and impressed everyone with its high output and reliable operation. Referring to the TM 3, the guests were particularly interested in the opportunities for market expansion offered by the TM machine. The TM 3 produces warp-knitted fabrics, which can be used to replace the fabrics woven on water-jet looms, thus offering advantages in terms of costs and sustainability.

An RD 7/2-6 EN, 138” from the RD machine range was premiered at the in-house show at Karl Mayer (China). This new machine was presented as the first prototype. Manufacturers in Asia have a more long-term interest in lace machines now. The OJ 83/1 B was producing a fine lace band during the show and everyone was impressed by the productivity, flexibility and operating reliability. The new LEISUREE.FASHION, type LM 41, was also presented as an attractive machine for producing functional, multi-bar lace in a gauge of E 28.

Karl Mayer’s warp preparation business unit was also demonstrating that it has an eye for the market with the new ISODIRECT direct beaming machine and the VSB Size Box. The demonstration of warp preparation was complemented by innovations for the denim sector and sectional warping, which were shown at Karl Mayer (China).

Karl Mayer’s technical textiles business unit was exhibiting as an expert, flexible partner for a wide range of applications. At the focal point of its demonstration of applications were textiles for the construction industry, such as concrete reinforcements, plaster carriers and roofing materials. (GK)
