Karl Mayer presents mega trends of our time

Karl Mayer, a leading German warp knitting machinery manufacturer, will be present at the upcoming ITMA Asia + CITME, to be held from 15-19 October in Shanghai, with an innovation show on the mega trends of our time, demonstrating how it is possible to implement such major topics as innovations, digitisation and sustainability.

As far as digitisation is concerned, Karl Mayer underlines its position as a leading specialist in the market. For the development of new digital solutions with high customer benefit, Karl Mayer recently set up its own company. Karl Mayer’s new, digital brand will be launched at ITMA Asia + CITME.

The company will also provide versatile solutions under the motto Cleaner.Productions. These include new warp knitting machines, which have a lower energy consumption due to their intelligent technology, and application concepts with increased advantages for the environment. One of the highlights will show how it is possible to replace formerly mainly woven articles by warp-knitted textiles as an ecological alternative. An example in this respect is Terry.Eco for the manufacture of terry articles.

The warp preparation business unit will be displaying a sizing machine with minimum resource consumption. Less demand for water, energy and sizing agents also means less costs and, thus, even more advantages for the customers, the company explains. The technical core of the machine with focus on the ecological aspect will be presented during the trade fair. A new direct beamer with improved price-performance ratio will also be premiered at ITMA Asia + CITME.

“For the production of technical textiles, Karl Mayer will be demonstrating comprehensive expertise in Shanghai,” the manufacturer adds. “Especially in the building and construction industry it is possible to open up new, lucrative areas of application by using textiles produced on Karl Mayer machines.”

The company will also invite its guests to take part in an in-house show at its plant in Changzhou. Here, the visitors will have the opportunity to see a performance show of the new COP 5 EL equipped with five guide bars, as well as lace raschel machines, and new developments in the double-raschel and terry-fabric fields. The visitors will have the chance to see market-oriented developments for the warp preparation business, especially for the players in the shirting and sheeting market, and in the denim sector.
