Karl Mayer’s Japan office, Nippon Mayer, whose line of business includes the manufacturing of machinery for the textile industries including parts, attachments, and accessories, has opened its new development centre on March 1, 2017, at Fukui, Japan, with an aim towards progress in the textile industries with new ideas, know-how, and equipments.

Setting up the modern building was part of a restructuring programme implemented at Karl Mayer’s site in Fukui, Japan. The restructuring and modernisation programme involved the setting up of a Centre of Excellence at this subsidiary between 2014 and 2016 for developing double-bar raschel machines and for researching into new innovations for the textile sector.

Nippon Mayer was able to demonstrate what it has to offer at an in-house show, which was held from March 1 to 3, 2017. The get-together, together with the inauguration ceremony, tour of the company, machine show and workshops, was extremely well attended.

The visitors to the opening ceremony were many customers from Japan and included a large delegation from Korea and even Europe. They were representatives of brand-name manufacturers from the sportswear and lace sectors, institutes and universities, as well as textile retailers, managing directors and owners of textile companies.

A selection of double-bar raschel machines formed the focal point of the well attended technical presentation. The specialist machines for producing seamless articles are ideal for manufacturing sportswear and clothing, and can produce a wide range of different patterns. The presentation of this innovative technology led to some intense discussions, especially among sportswear manufacturers. The HKS 4-M EL also generated a great deal of interest as it was operating. In full view of the impressed visitors, this high-speed tricot machine was producing a multicoloured garment piece featuring various designs with non-stop changeover facility.

The DS OPTO, which was also being demonstrated next to the tricot machine, also attracted the attention of the observers. This direct warping machine produces patterned sectional warp beams (SWBs), which enables the HKS 4-M EL to achieve its full performance potential. The DS OPTO operates in sectional warping mode when producing coloured SWBs at a high level of efficiency, as well as when processing short warps for developing new products. This hybrid machine can also be used just as easily for direct warping at high speed. (GK)
