KARL MAYER’s new raschel machine for nonwoven bonding
KARL MAYER launches new raschel
machine for nonwoven bonding at an in-house show in Obertshausen at Techtextil in Frankfurt. KARL MAYER invited the sector to visit its Stand at Techtextil in Frankfurt. On an exhibition area of 80 m², this manufacturer showed warp-knitted goods with a performance that is opening up new ways for interesting and novel business fields: articles with integrated electrical conductivity and shaping from the company’s new TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, a highly efficient textile solution for the protection of buildings, and a completely new generation of warp-knitted spacer fabrics.
KARL MAYER’s in-house show, a RACOP 2-NW produced a fabric in a gauge of E 14 intended for the application field of heating textiles. The heating effect can be tested on a demonstrator module.
Besides, at KARL MAYER’s headquarters in nearby Obertshausen, the visitors to Techtextil had the opportunity to attend an exhibition-accompanying in-house show with a machine premiere. The new raschel machine for nonwoven bonding, RACOP 2-NW, was presented. This efficient nonwoven machine processes fibrous webs to stitch-bonded nonwovens, and scores points by technological advantages. Unlike their chemically bonded counterparts, these nonwovens are elastic, voluminous and, thus, virtually textile. Moreover, the stitch-bonding process requires considerably less energy than thermal methods. In addition, the RACOP 2-NW impresses by an excellent price-performance ratio and highest flexibility.
