Karl Mayer to exhibit its new HKS 2-SE elastic machine at Febratex 2016

Karl Mayer, a leading manufacturer of warp knitting machinery, will exhibit its latest technology at the upcoming Febratex textile industry trade fair that will take place from 9-12 August, in Blumenau, Brazil. 

With its super-fast HKS 2-SE elastic machine and with its warp preparation units Karl Mayer aims to set new trends at Febratex, which exhibits a variety of textile equipment, with a special focus on sustainability and environment. The exhibition features accessories, supplies and raw materials, as well as technical information and the latest trends.

The 14th edition of Febratex welcomed around 90 thousand visitors, coming from different textile industry segments to meet with a total of 2,250 exhibiting brands from over 50 countries. The company will be displaying a tricot machine for producing elastic lockknit during its trade-fair appearance.

Attracting new customers

The exhibition machine will be working in a gauge of E 32 which is common for Latin America. According to the manufacturer, the machine is designed for applications in the lingerie, outerwear, swimwear and sportswear sections.

The company’s main objective of showcasing this innovative high-performance tricot machine is to attract new customers. “Many large circular knitting and weaving mills are located in the region around Blumenau. We want to convince the numerous textile producers of the advantages offered by warp knitting,” explained Nelson Da Cruz, the company’s Sales Manager.

Technical properties

The HKS 2-SE can reach the speed of 4400rpm and this is said to enhance the productivity. According to Karl Mayer, the high output enables this optimised tricot machine to offer an excellent price: performance ratio. The energy consumption and noise levels of the HKS 2-SE are also lower than those of the previous model.

The basis for the precision and high performance are integrated online monitoring systems (supplied as standard machine equipment) and the optimized control platform KAMCOS 2, which also aims to ensure a further simplified user guidance.

Based on this top performance Nelson Da Cruz expects great interest in Karl Mayer’s innovative machine during Febratex. He assumes that the trade fair will be very important for Karl Mayer. On one of the four days of the event representatives of the Top Management will be at the stand to welcome the guests.

Warp Preparation

Karl Mayer’s Business Unit Warp Preparation can be found on the stand of TenTEX do Brasil Ltda. The visitors will have the opportunity to get informed about the wide product range of warp preparation units for weaving, at the same time gaining insight into the manifold fields of application.

Dieter Gager, Vice President Sales, hopes for special interest in the solutions for the denim business. “In principle, denim is an important market for us and it is well established in Brazil,” he said.
