KARL MAYER at the ITMA Asia + Cinte, 22-26.06.2010 in Shanghai - KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH

As one of the highlights, this global player with its headquarters in Obertshausen will be featuring the production increases which can be achieved through the appropriate integration of carbon fibre components and the correspondingly adaptation of the machine concept. The RSE 4-1 – the first lightweight raschel machine – will be seen under continuous production conditions at ITMA ASIA + CINTE, and will reach speeds which have previously not been achieved. The increase in efficiency will be achieved by using lighter and more stable carbon fibre components in the bar area. A further advantage of the lightweight materials is that they are unaffected by heat and cold – an important attribute with regard to increasing the tolerance range when configuring the production environment. Thus it was possible to widen the window of climatic specifications from +/-2 °C to +/-7 °C for trouble-free operation. The first KARL MAYER machines to profit from the advantages of integrating carbon fibre components were high-production tricot machines. A model of the carbon fibre component generation from this production sector will also feature at ITMA ASIA + CINTE. Further novelties on the KARL MAYER stand will come from the Jaquardtronic® Lace and seamless production sectors – a cavalcade of innovations which is by no means exhausted. Parallel to the mega machine show in Shanghai this manufacturer, which abounds in innovative ideas, will be staging an in-house exhibition in the customer centre at its subsidiary in Wujin, showing the new RD 6 1-12. This extension to the double raschel machine series will be described in greater detail in this issue.
