Innovative warp knitting & warp preparation technology
Hall 6, Booth B3
KARL MAYER has an extensive exhibition program at INDIA ITME 2016. The renowned producer will be showing innovations from warp knitting, warp preparation and technical textiles in Hall 6, Stand B 3, on an area of 504 m².
Tricot fabrics in lace look
For the Warp Knitting Business Unit, KARL MAYER will be showing its successful duo belonging to the tricot segment: the HKS 3-M as another representative of the fourth generation of high-performance tricot machines, and the HKS 4-M EL, the high-speed all-rounder that sets new standards in terms of patterning possibilities and productivity. Both models will be shown in a working width of 218? and a gauge of E 28. Besides, LEO® ? a clever technology for energy saving and, thus, for cost saving ? is supplied as standard feature on all these machine types.
At India-ITME, the HKS 4-M EL will make use of its design advantages offered by the EL function; it will be producing a lightweight, very delicate fabric in lace look for the clothing sector. The semi-transparent article has only a weight of 31 g/m². It consists of a very delicate, filigree, embroidery-like fabric ground made from monofilament yarn, and a relief-like patterning made from a textured PES yarn.
In Mumbai the HKS 3-M machine will be producing a rigid sportswear textile with a filigree, grainy surface in woven look. The max. targeted speed is 2,800 min-1. Despite its impressive speed, the HKS 3-M is highly efficient due to the specific function integration on the basis of KAMCOS® 2, and with its new ergonomic machine design it also has a stylish look.
KARL MAYER will be presenting its new lace machine concept LACE.EXPRESS for the first time in India. LACE.EXPRESS sets new standards in terms of price-performance ratio when manufacturing garment lace.
Efficient solutions for weaving warp preparation
The highlights of KARL MAYER?s Warp Preparation Business Unit are innovative solutions for sizing, sectional warping and for the denim business. The exhibits include a smart Size Box which operates on the basis of the spray technology, thus, minimising the process costs, and the new ISOMATIC ? a short warp sampling machine for standard applications that convinces by its excellent price-performance ratio. For the denim sector KARL MAYER will be showing the model of the complete indigo dyeing unit PRODYE.
For those interested in innovations in the field of technical textiles, KARL MAYER will be offering a Meeting Point with valuable information for the manufacture of reinforcement layer fabrics for composites. The fibre-reinforced composite materials are used for wide-ranging applications ? from sports equipment to aircraft ? as will be seen on KARL MAYER?s stand.
KARL MAYER?s 360° service
The technical show will be complemented by decorative islands showing, among other things, attractive sari, lace and sportswear collections, video films and the presentation of the KARL MAYER ACADEMY INDIA. This facility for a practical know-how transfer is part of the company?s own support program which has only recently been expanded to an all-round concept. The 360° service mainly integrates mobile devices, by means of the new KARL MAYER CONNECT app for a highly efficient communication between machine operator and service specialist in case of need, and by the KARL MAYER CHECK PARTS app for an uncomplicated check of the spare parts in terms of their originality. Besides, the SPARE PARTS WEBSHOP ensures a simple ordering of the required parts by just a single mouse click. It is quite easy to use KARL MAYER?s new offers for mobile devices ? as will be demonstrated during INDIA ITME.
