Karl Mayer reports positive first impressions of ITMA 2015

Just a few days after the start of ITMA 2015, Karl Mayer gives a successful preliminary résumé. According to the leading machinery manufacturer, up from the beginning of the fair, the company’s stand turned out to be the meeting point of the entire warp-knitting and warp-preparation branch par excellence.

“The first two exhibition days have exceeded our expectations not only in terms of the visitor frequency but also concerning the high quality of the talks,” explained Oliver Mathews, Sales Vice President of the Warp Knitting Business Unit.

His positive summary was confirmed by the Karl Mayer Business Units Warp Preparation and Technical Textiles. Until Saturday, 14 November, the Karl Mayer team had roughly 670 qualified customer conversations. The clients came from 38 countries. The leading countries of origin of the exhibitors were India, China, Turkey and Italy.

New tricot machines

The visitors were mainly interested in the new tricot machines presented by Karl Mayer. While the HKS 2-SE machine was very convincing especially by its Low Energy Option (LEO), the HKS 4-M EL impressed the public by its flexibility during pattern change made possible by the EL equipment.

Concerning the Warp Preparation unit, the new all-round sectional warper PRO WARP and the extra-wide MULTI-MATIC MM 128/3.600 have been pulling the crowds, according to the manufacturer.

Futuristic design

The company’s new WEFTTRONIC HKS for the production of semi-technical articles of completely new style was also topic of numerous discussions.

The platform for these innovative exhibits is a stand featuring a futuristic design and multimedia show that is designed to leave a lasting impression on the public. The company expects further attention to its products as the fair continues in Milan.
