Compact sizing machines - KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH

The sizing machines produced by the KARL MAYER Group have been firm favourites on the market for many years now. They have achieved top marks for their user friendliness and process control systems. They also ensure that the yarn is handled extremely gently. Warp beams that can guarantee maximum efficiency during weaving are produced by rapid drying of the sizing agent without damaging the yarn, short yarn paths, and optimally controlled processing sequences. These performance features can now be used for producing short production warps. Rapidly changing fashion trends and the demand for more extensive collections have made it increasingly necessary to produce fabrics in short runs - and thus to produce warp beams with short running lengths. The demands made of the warp quality are also increasing. KARL MAYER has completely reoriented and reorganised its development operations and machine programme to enable it to meet the requirements of the market. This resulted first of all in the development of the Gir-O-Matic for sample warping and the Nov-O-Matic for automatic sectional warping – machines that have enabled KARL MAYER to set the trend in the textile industry. With the takeover of Sucker and the warp preparation operations of Benninger, this innovative manufacturer has extended its areas of expertise and expanded its capacity to enable it to systematically pursue its product strategy, which is based on the concept of flexible production. The result of KARL MAYER’s most recent development work is the ‘Compact Size’, a machine that is based on the principle of sizing short warps. The advantages of the short warp sizing machine: The short warp sizing machine can be used for economically sizing warp beams having short running lengths for use in sampling or production. More specifically, this new innovation from KARL MAYER offers a high degree of flexibility, reduced waste and a space-saving design. The tried-and-tested process control system also guarantees an exceptional product quality and first-class operating reliability. The design of the ‘Compact Size’: This sizing machine for processing short warps has a compact, two-level layout. The take-off device, sizing system and beaming machine are arranged in a line at floor level. The components which extend from the take-off device to the ladder used for climbing up to the second level are located in a space that is just 8.1 m long – the principles of this compact arrangement are also continued into the second, higher level. An IR air dryer with subsequent cylinder dryer and a vertical sub-drying zone having a total height of 4.3 m are housed here, and they are also arranged in a line one after the other. The capacity of this ‘Compact Size’ machine is 15 m with the drying system and 6 m without the drying system. The compact design of the sizing machine enables it to operate with reduced sizing agent, stop marks and waste yarn. The warp can be moved backwards to the optimum starting point after it has been drawn-in to reduce waste.
