Karl Mayer marks anniversary with China event

Karl Mayer, a market leader in the production of warp knitting and warp preparation machines, is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2017, by holding a series of special events with in-house shows held at its different subsidiaries. Next month, the company will hold an in-house show at Karl Mayer (China) in Changzhou.

During this technical presentation, the new TMJ 4/1-T terry warp knitting machine in a gauge of E 24 will be showing its features whilst producing patterned towels. Alongside this machine, an RDJ 5/1 double-bar raschel machine with piezo jacquard technology, also in a gauge of E 24, will be producing a spacer textile with an innovative multicoloured design for use as a shoe fabric.

“A brightly coloured ground surface is combined with a discreetly coloured cover face with a mesh pattern to produce this striking look. The coloured spots showing through create a butterfly-like pattern. All the main pattern elements of the final shoe are incorporated in the mirror images of the two halves of the design,” the company reports.

The unveiling of a new machine will also be celebrated at the in-house show in Changzhou – the successful Lace.Express family is being extended by a new family member.

In the field of warp preparation for warp knitting, the DS Opto will be introduced as a flexible direct warping machine for rigid filament yarns for production from short and sample warp beams to standard block colour warp beams.

For those visitors involved in weaving preparation, Karl Mayer will be showing the Isosize as a conventional sizing machine based on a modular design. Also available to view will be the beaming machine, the size box, and the drying unit as important components of the line. Karl Mayer will also be demonstrating high-precision technology for the denim sector in the shape of its Long Chain Beamer. This tried-and-tested machine is used in rope dyeing for converting ropes to yarn sheets of exceptionally high quality.
