Karl Mayer, Germany’s leading textile machinery company, is set to present its latest innovations, focussing on digitalisation and sustainability at ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo, in stand B 11, hall 4. The textile machinery exhibition of Asia will be held from 15 to 19 October, 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC), in Shanghai, China.

‘We care about your future’ is what Karl Mayer is all about. Its philosophy is to take responsibility also for future generations. What Karl Mayer is doing to promote sustainability will be on show at the fair and on the internet at www.Cleaner.Productions.

Intelligent, end-use-applicable concepts should also reduce environmental loads, as a technology transfer project being carried out by the central government and regional authorities in Wujiang Shengze, China, is demonstrating. One of the aims of this project is to replace the environmentally harmful looms in this industrial area with Karl Mayer’s warp knitting machines offering a comparable product portfolio. The TM 3, with its broad product portfolio, is a particularly good alternative. This tricot machine will be shown in operation at the exhibition, together with examples of its uses, the company said in a press release.

Karl Mayer will be showing the TERRY.ECO concept for the environmentally friendly production of terry goods, the core element of which is the TM 4 TS-EL machine. With its Prosize sizing machine, Karl Mayer is offering weaving companies involved in the production of terry goods a sizing machine based on the concept of sustainability. The core element of the Prosize system, the VSB Size Box, will be on show in Shanghai.

For the first time, the widest high-speed tricot machine in the world, the HKS 3-M, 280”, will be demonstrated to the public in operation at the exhibition. The unique performance of this machine will be demonstrated as it produces a velour fabric in a gauge of E 32.

The first TM model with KAMCOS 2 facility is also being showcased. Karl Mayer’s TM 3, 186”, equipped with the next generation of the Karl Mayer Command System, retains the tried-and-tested features of the HKS version. In Shanghai, this efficient, flexible production machine will be producing a tough fabric in a gauge of E 32 with ecological benefits.

For the warp preparation sector, Karl Mayer will also be showing the innovative VSB Size Box at the fair. Karl Mayer will also be showcasing the ISODIRECT direct warping machine, a world first with a unique cost:benefit ratio. This demonstration of Karl Mayer’s technology and strategies will be complemented by a presentation of the wide range of applications of warp-knitted fabrics.

The new COP 5 M-EL, 180” five-bar tricot machine will be unveiled to the public for the first time in Changzhzou. This machine will be producing a shoe fabric in a gauge of E 20, just one of the fabrics in its extensive production repertoire. A new machine will be representing the RD machine series at the in-house show. This new model is part of the RD 7 series and puts the emphasis on speed. This high-speed machine will be producing a shoe fabric at the in-house show in a gauge of E 22, and will be demonstrating a speed that has never been achieved before.

Karl Mayer’s TM 4 TS-EL is a versatile terry warp knitting machine for processing cotton. In Changzhou, the TM 4 TS-EL, 186” will be producing a double-face fabric in a gauge of E 28 with fluffy micro-fibres on the outside and absorbent cotton on the inside. Its technology makes this machine an environmentally friendly alternative to looms.

From its range of warp preparation equipment, Karl Mayer will be showing a Long Chain Beamer (LCB) and a Ball Warper (BW) for processing denim, especially for rope dyeing. Karl Mayer will also be showing the ISOWARP, a sectional warping machine with an excellent cost:benefit ratio for standard applications. (GK)
