Karl Mayer plans in-house show at Shanghaitex 2019
During the Shanghaitex fair, KARL MAYER is inviting its customers and other interested textile companies to see its innovative machine concepts and textile applications at an in-house show. The event will take place from 25 to 28 November 2019 at KARL MAYER (CHINA) in Changzhou.
“We presented our latest innovations to Europe at ITMA 2019 in Barcelona. The feedback from the visitors was excellent. We now want to show textile producers in Asia, who were not able to travel to Barcelona, our ranges that will help them to successfully develop their businesses in the fields of warp knitting, warp preparation and technical textiles,” says Armin Alber, the Sales Director of KARL MAYER (CHINA). This is even more important in view of the fact that the sector is currently rather reluctant to invest because of the economic situation in China in particular, yet it must be ready when the economic conditions pick up. “With our machines and fabric developments, we can offer our customers many advantages on the market over other technologies,” says Armin Alber.
At its in-house show, KARL MAYER will be showing its state-of-the- art machines, including three world firsts. The machines being premiered are a double-bar raschel machine, whose optimised cost:benefit ratio should appeal to shoe fabric producers in particular, a direct warping machine for efficiently processing elastane for the mid-range segment, and a raschel machine, which will put producers of patterned lingerie fabrics in the commodity segment one step ahead of their competitors. Furthermore KARL MAYER will display a three-bar HKS model with electronic guide bar control and integration in the world of KM.ON at the first time in Asia.
Another feature of the show is the latest warp-knitted home and household textiles that offer advantages over woven fabrics. In Changzhou, a modern machine with weft insertion will be producing net curtains featuring the popular woven look. The TERRY.ECO, a concept for the sustainable production of terry goods, and the associated TM 4 TS will also be presented. A textiles and applications show will round off the presentation for the warp knitting sector. This will showcase terry goods in a range of different designs, as well as ultra-fine, smooth lingerie fabrics with integrated, decorative lace at the edges.
KM.ON’s innovative, digital product range will also be presented to demonstrate how these well-thought-out products can give its customers market advantages. Well-thought-out machine systems for direct warping, sectional warping and sizing in the mid-range segment are also being shown for the warp preparation sector.
