Karl Mayer, the leading manufacturer of warp knitting machines at ShanghaiTex, an international trade fair for textile machinery that takes place from 15-18 June in Shanghai has put on display machines â€“ a new terry tricot machine type TS EL, a performance-enhanced HKS 4-M and a Multibar Jacquardtronic Lace type MJ 59/1 S with special guide bar configuration â€“ demonstrated their efficiency during operation in front of a large audience.
Oliver Mathews, Sales Vice President of the Warp Knitting Business Unit said that their stand was well attended at all times on the first day. Just on the first day of ShanghaiTex the company managed to sell one of its newly developed machines.
Karl Mayer exhibits a TM 4 TS EL terry warp knitting machine for processing cotton that can produce a wide variety of terry goods. By using a modern EL drive system instead of the old mechanical system, the speed of the TM 4 TS EL has been increased by about 30% compared to the old KS 4 FBZ when producing hand towels with borders.
The company is also showing an HKS 4-M four-bar tricot machine, whose speed has also been optimised. Depending on what it is being used for, this new high-speed model can reach up to 25% higher speeds than its predecessor.
A new MJ model, the MJ 59/1 S, is also on display. In the front position of the knitting elements, this new machine has a stitch-forming jacquard bar and not the normal pillar-stitch-forming ground guide bar. The fabric ground is therefore produced exclusively by the split jacquard bar.
According to Oliver Mathews, not only the number of visitors was satisfying, but also the general mood at the trade fair. Visitors come from the important textile regions of Southeast Asia and the Middle East â€“ i.e. from China and mainly from India, Indonesia, Korea and Vietnam.
As expected, there is a rather subdued demand from China but on the whole there is a great interest in Karl Mayerâ€™s innovations and customersâ€™ willingness to invest in new machines, the manufacturer reports.
