Karl Mayer, provider of machines for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation, is set to present textile machines for producing products used in cutting-edge applications, at Techtextil, the international trade fair for nonwovens, to be held in Germany, from May 9 to 12, 2017, in stand 3.0/E 18, under the theme ‘Textile-reinforced concrete’.

The visitors can expect an impressive display focusing on textile-reinforced concrete and functional clothing for the sports and athleisure sectors. Textile-reinforcing materials offer better ecological and economic alternatives to steel reinforcements when building with concrete. Since textiles do not rust, only a thin covering material is required. This saves on resources, reduces environmental pollution, and also enables thin-walled, filigree designs to be produced.

The company will show the RS MSUS-G weft-insertion warp knitting machine for producing the textiles that are used as an innovative way of reinforcing concrete. This high-speed raschel machine with weft insertion in line with the stitch courses can produce heavy carbon-fibre grids, which are used by members of TUDALIT e.V. This association is responsible for the TUDALIT trademark-protected brand for maintaining quality standards in the production and use of textile-reinforced concrete.

The company will also present two new fibre spreading machines, UD 500 and UD 700. Before they are joined to the plastic matrix, the fibre tapes are spread using UD 500 and UD 700 fibre spreading machines. These two machines have already made a name for themselves among composites’ manufacturers for use in the preliminary stages in the production of multiaxial textiles.

Innovative sports- and athleisure-wear provides comfort, enhances performance, looks stylish and offers a performance profile that is backed up by intelligently designed textiles. Stylish, functional stretch and non-stretch textiles are a speciality of Karl Mayer’s warp knitting machines. The company’s high-speed tricot machines, jacquard raschel machines and double-bar raschel machines, which can produce a variety of structured and openwork designs from a single source, and also work functional zones that can be integrated into a garment, such as a jersey, will also be part of the expo.

Karl Mayer’s double-bar raschel machines in particular are also setting functional trends when producing seamless items that are making quite a fashion statement. (GK)
