Karl Mayer unveiled its new warp knitting machine with weft insertion at a well-attended in-house event which was held at its Chinese subsidiary in Changzhou, China, from January 15-18, 2019. Karl Mayer is a leading manufacturer of textile machinery for automotive, apparel, home, sports, and technical markets in Germany and all over the world.

Representatives from more than ten companies came every day to attend the machine presentation, and these included knitters and weavers, as well as finishers interested in moving into textile production. The guests travelled from all over China, mainly from Jiangsu and Zheijiang, as well as from Shandong and Hebei. They were all impressed by the cost:benefit ratio of the machines on show.

Two models of the TM Weft, 247”, E 24, were being demonstrated, both producing an interlining, that is, a traditional fabric with one guide bar and a version having a higher drapabiity for special applications with two guide bars, Karl Mayer said in a media statement.

Both machines were running at an impressive level of stability and at a high speed of 1,500 min -1. The entire concept was extremely well received.

Together with Steffen Trabers from Illies China, the company’s agent in the region, the sales manager of Karl Mayer had many conversations relating to specific projects. The first machines have already been sold and further orders are expected over the next few months.

With its features and conceptual direction, the TM Weft, as a basic model, is designed to complement the existing Wefttronic II HKS, which will continue to be available for the high-end market. Karl Mayer is, thus, extending its tried-and-tested two product line strategy in its technical textiles business unit. (GK)
