KARL MAYER provides new points of reference - KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH

KARL MAYER will be showing its latest innovations at ShanghaiTex, innovations which are setting technical and economic standards in warp knitting and warp preparation more than ever. The machines are developed within the company group and are manufactured at KARL MAYER’s production locations worldwide, offering an exceptional price-performance ratio. Highlights on the exhibition stand W3 B01 are different types of yarn tensioners, a V-creel, the sizing unit of the SUCKER SIZE and the direct warping machine WARP-DIRECT. Moreover, a newly designed Wefttronic® machine will also be displayed. Visitors to the stand W1 F21 will have the opportunity to see KARL MAYER’s latest innovations in the sector of warp knitting machines: the extension of the RD product range and a new four-bar terry machine, TM 4-T. Innovations in the RD product range and in tricot machines: The newcomer in the RD product range is the RD 7/2-12 N or EL which is available in gauges of E 18, 22 and 24 and operates at a working width of 138". It is based on the same principles as the RD 6 1/1-12 but has one guide bar more than its six-bar sister machine, so that it can produce a wider range of patterns. A new level of flexibility has been achieved by incorporating the EL guide bar movement control, which is available as an optional configuration and with Multispeed system. It is possible to produce many new variations by superimposing constructions having different colours and densities in the cover faces of the 3D products to produce three-dimensional optical effects. The lengthwise repeat is virtually unlimited. The possibility of adjusting the distance between the knock-over comb bars between 2 and 12 mm also offers an additional advantage in the version equipped with electronic guide bar control. Manufacturers of shoe textiles are particularly interested in the extended patterning possibilities of the RD 7/2-12 - and in its high level of efficiency. This innovative machine will be producing patterned fabrics for footwear at ShanghaiTex. KARL MAYER has also extended its range of four-bar tricot machines for the polyester terry goods market with the addition of a further model named TM 4-T. The visitors can look forward to a completely new machine with an exceptional price-performance ratio. The new Wefttronic® RS 2: Wefttronic® is the name given to a new machine platform, with which KARL MAYER has revised and improved its weft-insertion machines in terms of their width and square metre production rate. The first machine featuring this completely revamped machine concept is the Wefttronic® RS 2. Compared to its predecessor, it has been equipped with a range of new technical innovations. One of the latest innovations on the Wefttronic® is that the weft insertion system has been completely revised. The central machine unit has been fitted with an optimised weft chain on both sides, and its operating functions have been improved using sophisticated technology.
