Leading textile machinery manufacturer Karl Mayer will present its latest tricot and raschel machines and new ideas for manufacturing innovative sportswear and outerwear fabrics at Obertshausen on September 25 at its open house event. For the company’s Business Unit Warp Knitting the event will take place at Karl Mayer’s own Development Centre. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the latest machines developed by the company, including a tricot machine type TM 4 EL, the Multibar Jacquardtronic Lace MJ 42/1B and the high-performance tricot machine HKS 4-M EL.
Textile machinery factory Karl Mayer was set up in 1937. A family company, it has grown into world’s number one in the field of warp knitting technology. Recently at Techtextil in Frankfurt, the company put the spotlight on 3D textiles, showcasing room elements made from warp-knitted, sound-absorbing spacer textiles. The stable weft-inserted structures have already been used in India as geotextiles and coating/backing substrates.
The reinforcing textiles made on Karl Mayer’s high-performance multiaxial machines are being employed for different applications in the composites sector.
