At the upcoming SaigonTex, taking place from 10-13 April in Ho Chi Minh City, the Karl Mayer Group will present itself as a leading player and innovative partner in the Asian textiles industry.

The Karl Mayer exhibition for warp preparation is entirely dedicated to sustainability. With Bluedye, a highly innovative machine is introduced, which ensures more sustainability and lower costs in the process of indigo dyeing. Thanks to innovative technological solutions, the immense amounts of water and chemicals used are significantly reduced. Additionally, less yarn waste is generated.

Bluedye therefore scores equally in environmental protection and cost-effectiveness. Another innovation for more sustainability is Cascade, an innovative steam and condensation system that requires significantly less steam in the drying process of sizing and indigo dyeing plants by using a solution for energy recycling that is protected against imitation.

For the warp knitting sector, the innovative group of companies has materials in its exhibition luggage to present its latest technological developments. Highlights include, among others, a digital solution from KM.ON for optimising production management (DPM), innovations for enhancing performance in the HKS segment, and a double raschel machine that enables unique creative multi-colour designs in spacer textiles with more colour and new Jacquard techniques. This should be particularly interesting for the sportswear and sports shoe industry.

"Vietnam is a growing market for textile production, which is gaining importance especially for major international sports brands," says Eddy Ho, Senior Sales Manager at Karl Mayer. The sales professional expects a large number of visitors, especially from Vietnam, China, Taiwan, and South Korea. SaigonTex is one of the most important textile machinery exhibitions in East Asia, located in close proximity to its main production centres.

Vietnam is, in turn, the second most important market for the Karl Mayer Group after China. It benefits from increasing foreign direct investments in textile production from China, Taiwan, and South Korea. Therefore, the Karl Mayer Group has been participating in SaigonTex for decades and is looking forward to meeting its customers again this year to discuss their needs and market trends in the warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation sectors.
