The latest innovations of warp knitting and warp preparation machinery
Traditionally, all the important companies belonging to the knitting industry are present at ShanghaiTex, and this is also valid for KARL MAYER. The world market leader for warp knitting machines and warp preparation units will be displaying its products on stand E01 in Hall W1. On an exhibition area of 744 m² KARL MAYER will be showing its latest developments in the lace and tricot machinery sections. Among other things, the visitors will have the opportunity to see the high performance of KARL MAYER’S new 4-bar TM 4 EL tricot machine. This newcomer completes KARL MAYER’s portfolio of TM models. So far, the successful machine series included the TM 2, TM 3, TM 4-T and TM 4-T EL. The TM 4 EL is intended for the production of plain fabrics, being the counterpart of the TM 4-T EL in the 4-bar tricot machine range, which is designed for manufacturing terry articles and which will also be presented at ShanhaiTex. The new TM 4 EL reaches rotational speeds of up to 1,400 min-1. It offers a high productivity along with a simple operation and a first-class product quality. All these features make this machine especially interesting for all those who want to manufacture garments but also semitechnical textiles, in particular shoe fabrics. The standard working width of the new TM 4 EL is 186". The machine gauges are E 28 and E 32. In addition to the 4-bar tricot machines, the guests will also have the chance to take a look at innovations related to the topic of Jacquard fabrics made on double-bar Raschel machines.KARL MAYER’s business unit Warp Preparation will be showing its new elastic warper DSE 21/21 EC. This newcomer completes the manufacturer’s offer of direct warping machines, being the price-performance-improved equivalent of the DSE-HH type. Compared to the top-performance model, the DSE 21/21 EC produces beams with smaller maximum diameters. And another outstanding feature of this machine is its performance intended to satisfy the user’s basic requirements. Along the innovations for Knitting Warp Preparation, the KARL MAYER stand will also be presenting the efficiency of various yarn tensioners fitted to a demonstration creel, and the company will also display a SMS size box – all in all, a wide-ranging showcase of new developments by means of which this renowned textile machinery builder sets the stage to justify its reputation as innovative trendsetter in warp knitting technology and warp preparation units.
