Karl Mayer reports positive feedback from ITMA

Karl Mayer, the innovative market leader in warp knitting technology, has attracted a large number of visitors to its stand at the ITMA trade fair that took place in Milan last month. By the time ITMA was over, Karl Mayer’s exhibition team had recorded roughly 1,650 conversations.

The manufacturer was showing its products, including nine innovative machines and nine new developments for the textile and services sectors, on a stand covering an area of 1,200 m² over two levels.

In addition to the large number of visitors, Karl Mayer’s representatives were impressed by the high quality of the discussions they had. During the conversations, the guests asked many specific questions on the technology and end-uses. A number of projects involving first-time or continuing cooperation were planned, and sales contracts were initiated.

Warp knitting machines

Karl Mayer’s new HKS 2-SE machine presents a novel machine design, KAMCOS 2 as a new automation platform, integrated monitoring functions with the new camera system and – with the Low Energy Option (LEO) – a very efficient means for cost saving.

The HKS 4-M EL with its high productivity and maximum flexibility was another highlight during the trade fair – especially in combination with Karl Mayer’s DS OPTO-EC intended for the efficient manufacture of patterned sectional beams. At the machine show, the HKS 4-M EL was running at a speed of 2,100 min-1. At maximum speeds, the shog movement for the underlap is executed precisely in just 6.3 ms.

For the lace sector Karl Mayer was able to offer the new TL 79/1/36 FASHION, designed to produce high-end lace articles featuring relief-like patterns. Another highlight was the MLF 46/24 machine, which attracted the attention of the mass producers.

Warp preparation machines

The extra-wide MULTI-MATIC was one of the exhibits of the Karl Mayer Business Unit Warp Preparation. With a working width of 3,600 mm, the new MM 128/3.600 is 1,350 mm longer that its predecessor for the same number of yarns processed.

In the sectional warping machine sector, Karl Mayer was showing a study in concept and design in the shape of the PRO WARP, a new machine that combines the technologies of the OPT-O-MATIC and the ERGOTEC. Karl Mayer was also showing an innovative system for the denim sector: a dyebath featuring the Double Vario technology as a key component of the PRODYE denim dyeing machine.

Production of new weft-inserted, warp-knitted textiles

The Business Unit Technical Textiles showed a new WEFTTRONIC HKS machine featuring Karl Mayer’s modern corporate design. The next generation of the HKS MSUS was running at a speed of 1,500 min-1 during the fair and was equipped with a needle gauge of E 40.

The machine was processing a yarn having a count of dtex 33 to produce an interlining that was lighter and more flexible than any interlining ever produced before.

Online support

In addition to its new technical developments, Karl Mayer was also showing some pioneering online systems. For example, the new Karl Mayer Connect app provides a quick link to the manufacturer for sending out service requests.

The company also provides more support with obtaining spare parts – in the shape of the SPARE PARTS WEBSHOP platform and the Karl Mayer Check Parts app. About 1,500 wearing parts for all the current warp knitting machines can be ordered directly from the webshop. For other spare parts, the webshop offers an easy-to-use request function via online access to the electronic spares catalogue for machines built from 2006 onwards.
