The goal of the event is to provide the market an opportunity to learn about many recent innovations in detail and to generate ideas for new product development, the company reports.

Ideas and support

"We have developed an exhibition programme intended to provide our guests with fresh ideas and valuable support for their future development activities,” explained Tony Hooimeijer, President of Karl Mayer North America in Greensboro.

“Our customers have enormous experience and knowledge in their markets. If they are able to combine this with our expertise and innovations, it is surely possible to generate completely new product solutions and ideas for increased productivity.”


During Karl Mayer’s in-house exhibition in Greensboro visitors will have the opportunity to see high performance warp knitting machines in operation, producing new and sophisticated fabrics for automotive applications, and for sportswear, including seamless garments.

For the weaving industry, Karl Mayer will be displaying its latest automatic sectional warper for the flexible production of high-precision warp beams. For sizing the company will be showing its VSB size box, a revolutionary new development that will generate significant savings. The third highlighted key area will be for the composites industry, and an innovative carbon fibre spreading unit will be demonstrated.

Flexibility for visitors

The exhibition with all its highlights will be open to guests in the very flexible way. A half-day visit, a full-day tour or a stay for several days – the programme will be tailored to individual requirements, the company reports.

In addition to having a show and tell at the machines, there will be presentations by Karl Mayer’s Business Units at regular intervals.
