The Karl Mayer Group will be exhibiting innovations in machinery and technical services at ITMA ASIA + CITME, which is currently taking place in Shanghai. The innovations ensure greater speed, flexibility and independence, particularly with digital pioneering solutions in production, the company reports.

“This will be complemented by a ‘trendy textile show’ as inspiration for new business opportunities. The offers for warp knitting, flat knitting, production of technical textiles and warp preparation are very well received. During the first two days alone, several hundred visitors came, mainly with specific interests and mainly from China,” a statement from the company said.
