Karl Mayer presents innovations related to current mega trends

No ITMA without KARL MAYER! At the upcoming ITMA ASIA + CITME, the world market leader will be present on Stand B 11, H 4, with an innovation show on the mega trends of our time, demonstrating how it is possible to implement such major topics as innovations, digitization and sustainability. As far as digitization is concerned, KARL MAYER underlines its position as the undisputed number one in the market. For the development of new digital solutions with high customer benefit, KARL MAYER recently set up its own company. Its new, digital brand will be launched at ITMA ASIA + CITME.

Concerning the topic of sustainability, the company will provide versatile solutions under the motto “Cleaner Productions”. These include new warp knitting machines which have lower energy consumption due to its intelligent technology, and application concepts with increased advantages for the environment. One of the highlights will show how it is possible to replace woven articles by warp-knitted textiles as an ecological alternative. An example in this respect is TERRY.ECO for the manufacture of terry articles.

The warp preparation business unit will be displaying a sizing machine with minimum resource consumption. Less demand for water, energy and sizing agents also means less cost and, thus, more advantage for the customers. The technical core of the machine with focus on the ecological aspect will be presented during the trade fair. Besides, a new direct beamer with improved price-performance ratio will also be premiered at ITMA ASIA + CITME.

For the production of technical textiles, KARL MAYER will be demonstrating comprehensive expertise in Shanghai. Especially in the building and construction industry it is possible to open up new, lucrative areas of application by using textiles produced on KARL MAYER machines. Important keyword here is textile concrete.

Moreover, during the trade fair in Shanghai, KARL MAYER will invite its guests to take part in an in-house show at its plant in Changzhou. Here, the visitors will have the opportunity to see a performance show of the new COP 5 EL equipped with five guide bars, as well as lace raschel machines featuring an excellent price-performance ratio, and new developments in the double-raschel and terry-fabric fields. Besides, the visitors will also have the chance to see market-oriented developments for the warp preparation business, especially for the players in the shirting and sheeting market, and in denim sector. In other words: an exhibition full of future chances will be waiting for KARL MAYER’s guests.
