Mayer & Cie (MCT) has started a new line of business this month. From January 2019, it will be manufacturing braiding machines in addition to circular knitting machines at its Albstadt works. As a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines, the company manufactures the entire range of machines required for making modern textiles.

Mayer Braidtech, a wholly owned MCT subsidiary, is responsible for sales and service of the new machines, manufactured for the past 40 years by US-based affiliate Mayer Industries. With Mayer Industries due to cease operations in the medium term, MCT has decided to integrate and take forward this successful line of business at its Albstadt location, MCT said

Benjamin Mayer, MCT’s co- managing director, is responsible for sales of the braiding machines. After a fast and furious start to 2018, demand for circular knitting machines had tailed off in the second half. That was mainly due to turbulence in international trade policy, he said, in the wake of which uncertainty had spread widely in many important circular knitting markets. Order books for braiding machines, in contrast, are full for months ahead because other laws apply to the hydraulic hoses used in, for example, automobile manufacturing and aviation. Braiding machine manufacturing capacities are currently fully booked until the beginning of 2020.

In January 2019, Braidtech is embarking on series production in Albstadt-Tailfingen. Preparations for this milestone took nearly 12 months. Premises needed to be provided, the production line prepared, procurement organised and, not least, the team lined up. At the moment, it consists of 12 employees who do production-related work in, say, assembly, quality assurance, and logistics. They are currently working flat out on the prototype of their first braiding machine, an MR 15 24 carrier.

The plan for the first half of 2019 provides for the shipment of two double deck systems, each consisting of two MR15 24 carriers, per month. Preparations are also be made for series production of the second model in a range consisting of six products. Distribution structures are well established. Mayer Braidtech has handled world sales of braiding machines for years.

As overall demand still exceeds production capacity in Albstadt-Tailfingen, MCT affiliate Mayer Industries will continue to manufacture braiding machines in the year ahead. Mayer Industries, based in Orangeburg, South Carolina, has made a name for itself in this field for the past 40 years and its systems are considered to be premium products. (GK)
