Karl Mayer to present warp knitting solution at ITM exhibition 2016

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-04-05 16:00:00 – Obertshausen

ITM exhibition 2016, the world’s most important platforms for the global textile machinery-manufacturing sector to take place from 1-4 June in Istanbul. The German firm Karl Mayer will have a wide ranging offering including warp knitting solutions for the home textiles, apparel and lace sectors as well as information on its sizing and comprehensive service package.

The company will be located in Hall 7 where the new HKS 4-M EL tricot machine and the Size Box VSB innovative sizing technology will be on show. However, this stand is not restricted to just showcasing the technology; it will also feature islands decorated with soft furnishings, demonstrating the latest textile developments and innovative applications aimed at the Turkish market.

The products on display will focus on applications for home textiles, particularly upholstery fabrics and net curtains, as well as lace for outerwear and intimate apparel. Sophisticated bourdon lace, a particular speciality of the JL 65/1 B Fashion model, will also be on show alongside demonstrations of Karl Mayer's latest 360° service organisation which includes new technical support features.

For the duration of the fair, an HKS 4-M EL will be demonstrating all its features by producing a structured upholstery fabric. This innovative machine was premiered successfully at ITMA 2015. It operates up to 25% faster than its predecessor and is extremely flexible – now without a pile sinker bar. The EL feature enables patterns to be changed quickly and easily, and the repeat lengths are said to be virtually limitless. A wide variety of designs can be worked with long pattern cycles, as can the classic patterns from the patterning repertoire of this high-speed, four-bar tricot machine.

For representatives of the weaving preparation sector, Karl Mayer will be showing the Size Box VSB. The size box is the central component of the PROSIZE sizing machine. It operates with three highly turbulent application zones, in which the yarns are treated with the liquor via patented application/squeeze rollers and a spray bar system. Compared to the immersion process, this efficient process requires fewer size additives, reduces energy consumption during desizing, and produces less effluent. The size application is also more uniform.

In order to give its customers even more technical support during their day-to-day operations, Karl Mayer has integrated its reliable service operations into a comprehensive concept and has incorporated additional services into this system. An important new feature is the option of using online communication. When required, the client can communicate quickly and error-free with Karl Mayer’s service organisation using the Karl Mayer Connect app, and the Karl Mayer Webshop enables spare parts to be acquired quickly and easily.

A smartphone or tablet can be used in conjunction with a new label of authenticity, once the spare part has arrived, this checks the authenticity of the part that has been supplied and prevents copies from being used for which the Karl Mayer Check Parts app can be used.

The ITM exhibition by presenting latest technologies and solutions in the textile industry paves way for innovation and creativity. It is an event that delivers promising returns to the exhibitors and stands by its quality of display and services.
