The KARL MAYER GROUP draws a positive conclusion after INDIA ITME 2022
The KARL MAYER GROUP looks back on a successful participation in the INDIA ITME in December 2022. The global player went to the leading trade fair in one of its most important market regions with great expectations, and was not disappointed. Nearly 1,100 conversations with existing customers and new prospects were logged.
"We have met many of our customers so far. The first day was still quiet, but on the second and third days of the show, many, many more customers came to our booth. We are actually very satisfied with the show," said Kevin Socha, managing director of KARL MAYER (H.K.) Ltd, towards the end of the event. The verdict on the quality of the conversations was also positive. The diverse exchanges mainly dealt with specific questions about machines, textiles and applications.
India is an important market for the KARL MAYER GROUP. The company's exhibition took this importance into account.
Visitors with focused interests
Most of the visitors were interested in a textile and fashion show, where everything revolved around the themes of comfort, sustainability and new market potential. There was inspiration not only for warp knitters but also for weavers. Highlights included terry articles that can be produced in a more environmentally friendly way than their woven counterparts using warp-knitting technology, chic clothing made from comfortable 4-way stretch with a woven-like look that can also be produced in a more sustainable, costthe range also includes innovative athletic outfits, including leggings in power jersey with the excellent stretch properties of a twill weave, shorts in a lightweight and breathable mesh knit, and smooth jersey goods. Many of the knitted fabrics are created on high-performance digital generation warp knitting machines. The models work with cloud-based digital solutions from KM.ON to provide customers with greater efficiency in management and design, among other things.
Also closely surrounded on the KARL MAYER stand was the ISOWARP on display. This sectional warping machine is manufactured with the high quality of the KARL MAYER GROUP at the company's own production site in Ahmedabad. Customers benefit from the advantages of on-site production and excellent value for money. ISOWARP manufactures quality beams that enable maximum efficiency in the weaving mill and can be easily operated by personnel with only basic training. At the same time, the overall costs for the investor are low.
A major attraction for visitors from the flat knitting sector was the BMS 52 ki multi gauge E 3.5.2 on show. This attractively priced, high-performance model is predestined for entry into the STOLL world and primarily produces fully fashion and cut & sew articles for the mass market. However, many inquiries were also received about the second STOLL machine at the show, the CMS 503 ki multi gauge E 7.2. This representative of the tried-and-tested CMS series extends STOLL's highly productive Economic range, takes account of the price sensitivity of Indian customers and impresses with its flexibility.
The KARL MAYER GROUP's Care Solutions range was also the subject of numerous discussions. In particular, the regional extension of the tried-and-tested KARL MAYER WEBSHOP for the warp preparation business unit was very well received. Customers in India can now order spare parts for their warp preparation machines at the click of a mouse.
