The Karl Mayer Group is supporting its customers in times of crisis and upheaval, with pioneering solutions for the development of their businesses. The well-known global player recently demonstrated what these market-effective innovations look like at a product show during ITMA ASIA from 19-23 November at its site in Changzhou City.

A whole range of brand-new machines made their debuts at the industry get-together, including a multifunctional Rascheltronic with maximum flexibility, a Textronic Lace, whose products come closer than ever before to the coveted Leavers Lace standard, and two performance-optimised mid-range representatives from the tricot machine family, which were complemented by established machines with selected performance focuses.

Additionally, a double-needle-bar raschel machine for all-round use demonstrated the possibilities for producing a wide range of high-quality jacquard spacer fabrics. In addition to the machines, there were innovative digital solutions that, amongst other things, revolutionise the production management of warp knitting mills and monitor the machine's energy consumption, as well as Care Solutions offerings for all-round support at the highest level.

The diverse range of exhibits was very well received. Karl Mayer (China) counted a total of 215 visitors, most of whom came from China, but also from India, Korea, Turkey, Taiwan and Indonesia.

The great interest was surprising, the German company says. "The product show exceeded all our expectations. There were more guests from China and abroad than ever before at comparable events at Karl Mayer (China)," explained Rainer Müller.

However, the President of Sales of the Karl Mayer Warp Knitting Business Unit is not only satisfied with the number of visitors. "With a total of ten machines on display, we were able to show that we are technological leaders in a wide range of end applications. Our sales managers and our R&D team received a lot of positive feedback from our customers during and after the performance demonstrations of the machines. Some of them were so impressed by what they saw that they started price discussions with us on site," he added. The lace raschel machine was even sold on the spot at the event.
