A mosaic of innovations received a lot of attention

Besides, the KARL MAYER stand also offered individual machine solutions in the market of technical textiles. In this sector, the company presented a machine for the production of functional technical textiles with tailored applications, for example the weft insertion system for the processing of online spread and guided carbon tapes on the Malitronic MULTIAXIAL C&L (Cut & Lay) displayed in Barcelona. “The talks during ITMA revealed clearly the orientation towards special solutions”, said the head of sales of the KARL MAYER business unit Technical Textiles Axel Wintermeyer. “At ITMA, we proved that – due to our know-how and our experience - we are able to come up to the demands for the fabrication of special textile products.”

For the first time, KARL MAYER presented on this year's ITMA its developments in the field of warp preparation together with the innovations of warp knitting on the same stand.

The Multi-Matic has been another highlight on the KARL MAYER stand. This warping machine produces sample and production warps with medium run lengths arriving at a warping speed of up to 800 m/min and processing max. 128 yarn ends – coming up to 5 times more yarn ends than the GOM 24.

“For our visitors, the possibility to control a large quantity of individual yarn ends represents a groundbreaking extension of the patterning options“, declared Martin Küppers, head of sales of the business unit Warp Preparation. He added that the high productivity enables the realization of new designs in many fields of application and therefore the opening of new business segments.

For KARL MAYER, ITMA 2011 has turned out to be an efficient platform for the information transfer and for public relations even beyond the European borders. “Thanks to the remarkably high degree of internationality reigning on our stand, our presentation was able to attract even more attention”, confirmed Arno Gärtner.

The majority of the visitors to the KARL MAYER stand came from India, followed by the USA, Italy, Brazil, Spain, Germany and Turkey. The reason for the high proportion of US visitors is the US manufacturers' great interest in the market of technical textiles. Most of the guests of the business unit Warp Knitting came from Turkey (after India).

According to Oliver Mathews, head of sales of the business unit Warp Knitting, India and Turkey, with their demand expected to be continuing, are a strong driving force for the market. As cause of the positive trend he named above all these countries' rising own demand for products efficiently produced on a large scale.

This year's fair has been the best ever, since its first participation – this message could be understood during the feedback talks with most of the KARL MAYER staff. “Europe is and remains the centre for innovation in the textile machinery building,” explained Oliver Mathews and became more precise stating that the interest in new developments, the technical expertise of the visitors and the quality of the talks has been strikingly high on the KARL MAYER stand.

By its participation in the fair, KARL MAYER could increase its degree of popularity, could strengthen its reputation as a trendsetter in the branch and its position as market leader, and could certainly generate business on a large scale. Besides, the manufacturer's stand turned out again to be the meeting point of the branch par excellence, also at this year's ITMA.
