ShanghaiTex Exhibitor Preview: Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik
OBERTSHAUSEN, Germany - May 6, 2013 - Knitting companies have traditionally been well represented
at ShanghaiTex and KARL
MAYER is no exception. This well-known company will be showcasing its products on stand E01 in hall W1. Its warp knitting machine highlights include the new TM 4 EL and MJ 42/1 B, a completely revamped HKS 2-ES, and an RD 7/2-12 EL, which will all be shown on an
area of 744 m2. KARL MAYER will also be presenting its latest developments in the field of warp preparation. The new TM 4 machine produces plain fabrics with four guide bars. It therefore complements the TM 4-T, which is designed to produce terry fabrics. This machine
can also be equipped with the EL facility and will also be shown at ShanghaiTex. The technical features of both machines are identical, both are available as N or EL versions, and their performance profile is the same. Speeds of up to 1,400 min-1, a high degree of user-
friendliness, and excellent product quality make the new TM 4 ideal for producing apparel fabrics as well as semi-technical textiles. The TM 4 EL will be producing a shoe fabric at ShanghaiTex. This tricot machine has a standard working width of 186" and is available in gauges of E 28 and E 32. The TM 4-T EL will be demonstrating all its performance capabilities by producing terry fabrics extremely efficiently.
In addition to the latest developments in the TM series, visitors will also be able to see the latest innovations in high-speed, two-bar tricot machines. In this case, KARL MAYER has focused its development work on increasing the speed. The modifications that have been made to the HKS 2-ES mainly relate to the knitting motion and the guide bars, which have been completely redesigned. These measures have increased the speed by as much as 12.5% compared to the previous model - and can also be seen in Shanghai. The HKS 2-SE with a working width of 130" will be producing a two-way stretch fabric in a gauge of E 36 at the fair. The bielastic fabric is intended for use in the swimwear and sportswear sectors and can also be processed into lingerie.
Another highlight in the lingerie sector that visitors to ShanghaiTex can expect to see will be the new MJ 42/1 B. This new machine is based on the same constructional principles as the ML series, offers a similar range of products as the JL series and can be obtained to an optimized price-performance ratio. The MJ 42/1 B is also faster than the ML version. This new raschel machine will be demonstrating its high speed when producing stretch lace bands having a width of 14.5 cm. The MJ 42/1 B machine on show has a gauge of E 24 and
a working width of 134".
KARL MAYER will also be showcasing an innovative double-bar raschel machine at the fair - the RD 7/2-12 EL. This successful machine will be producing a shoe fabric at ShanghaiTex - thus demonstrating its full potential.
KARL MAYER's Warp Preparation Business Unit will be showing its new elastic warping machine, type DSE 21/21 EC. This new machine complements the manufacturer's range of direct warping machines and is the price:performance-optimised version of the DSE-HH.
Compared to the top-of-the-range version, the DSE 21/21 EC produces beams having a reduced maximum diameter. It is designed to meet basic, standard requirements and has an impressive performance profile. In addition to these machines, the performance features of a range of yarn tensioners will be showcased on a demonstration creel on KARL MAYER's stand, together with an SMS size box.
All in all, a wide range of new developments will be on show, which will enable this well- known machine building company to maintain its reputation as an innovative trendsetter in the field of warp knitting technology and warp preparation machines. Thanks to the machines on show, completely new textile products, and the expert support and advice of an experienced exhibition team, KARL MAYER's stand at ShanghaiTex 2013 is well worth a visit.
