Karl Mayer attracts large numbers of visitors at ITMA Asia + CITME

Karl Mayer, a leading Obertshausen-based manufacturer of warp knitting machinery, warp preparation machines and systems for producing technical textiles, has welcomed more than 350 visitors to its booth at the ITMA Asia + CITME exhibition that concludes in Shanghai today.

The majority of the visitors are from the domestic markets, and are particularly interested in the tricot machines on show – a fourth generation HKS 3-M, which aims to deliver improved flexibility, speed and user-friendliness, and an HKS 4-M EL, which is also said to offer a high speed and patterning potential.

Manufacturers of technical textiles have also been delighted at being given some new ideas on the subject of lightweight constructions on Karl Mayer’s stand in Shanghai, according to the manufacturer. The company is also showing a highly productive sectional warping machine for weaving preparation, and an innovative sizing system.

In-house show

Coinciding with the exhibition, visitors to the fair could also attend an in-house show at Karl Mayer (China) in Wujin, Changzhou, which was showcasing an extensive range of products.

The focus of the in-house show is on the production of lace, and a fundamental new development, the OJ 59/1 B, setting standards for multibar jacquard machines in terms of the cost:benefit ratio. This new machine is the first machine in the new Lace.Express series. It can produce large volumes of fashionable lace for the rapidly changing outerwear market, and is just as efficient as the Jacquardtronic Lace machine, but is much more productive, the company reports.

In Wujin, Changzhou, Karl Mayer is also showing a new double-bar raschel machine for producing fashionable shoe designs, and a direct warping machine for warp knitting preparation, which features a universal, hybrid operation. The show of the innovative machines has been very well received, according to the manufacturer, attracting nearly 200 registered visitors only on the first two days.
