Versatile and functional textiles

Come and see KARL MAYER’s products for the sports sector at ISPO from 26. – 29. 01. 2020 in Munich

Following its first successful time exhibiting at ISPO Munich 2019, KARL MAYER intends to also attend the next fair, which will take place from 26 to 29 January 2020. The company has prepared a performance show of functional, warp-knitted textiles and smart, on-trend lingerie and clothing items for its visitors. This world leader in the manufacture of textile machinery can be found on stand 408 in hall C2.

Textile solutions for sportswear delivering performance and function

The highlights of KARL MAYER’s stand include an ECG shirt for measuring vital signs. This garment, which features integrated sensor technology, was developed under the concept of TEXTILE-CIRCUIT in the company’s TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, and was premiered at ITMA 2019 to a highly interested audience. The sensors have been upgraded for the ISPO show. One of the reasons for doing this was to improve the wear comfort. The electrically conductive material required is incorporated directly into the textile on the warp knitting machine in the desired arrangement.

Another focal point will be a presentation of warp-knitted textiles that have been especially developed to meet the requirements of the sports sector. These include lightweight, stable mesh linings, hardwearing shoe fabrics, stylish 4-way-stretch fabrics with breathability and compression characteristics, a variety of tricot fabrics with decorative, striped patterns, and warp-knitted spacer textiles for a range of end-uses.

The new development, 4D-KNIT.SOLUTIONS, is illustrating what can be achieved with double-bar raschel technology for 3D warp-knitted textiles. With their unique, three-dimensional, cushioning construction, these voluminous fabrics offer a new level of design potential. Ready-made panels, e.g. entire back components for use in midlayer jackets, can be produced, as well as imaginative designs with pronounced sculptured effects, and combinations of 4D effects and breathable openings. Different fabric weights can also be produced. Thanks to the internal cushioning, the cuddlesome fabrics provide good insulation, without any micro-particles being produced – performance characteristics that are tailor-made for functional garments and shoes.

Under the concept of BODYMAPPING REVOLUTION, KARL MAYER will be showing the potential of the RASCHELTRONIC® for producing new, virtually seamless, comfortable clothing for wearing during active sports or for every day. Design edges and hems, as well as functional zones, can be worked during actual production on this versatile machine. Breathable mesh designs, stable areas, and zones with different elastic moduli for providing support and a perfect fit can be placed wherever they are needed.

Under JERSEY EVOLUTION KARL MAYER has developed a warp knitted alternative to conventional knitted fabrics for sportswear manufacturers who rely on jersey fabrics. The soft textiles offer a high degree of elasticity with good recovery, smooth, stable edges with no tendency to curl for free-cut style and a wonderful, flowing fall – just like their knitted counterparts. Unlike these, however, they can be produced incomparably more efficiently: A knitting machine can replace 2.5 circular knitting machines, depending on the lapping and yarn selection.

The design potential of KARL MAYER’s machines can be exploited optimally by linking them to KM.ON’s digital systems. The digital products and software of this KARL MAYER start-up will also be at the centre of the ISPO presentation. In particular, the features of the k.innovation product category are revolutionising warp knitting with an intuitive design tool, which reduces the time-to-market considerably. A special feature of k.innovation is the possibility of web-based collaboration between different partners involved in the project. All the designers, customers and suppliers involved in producing the sample patterns have access to the same data – enabling them to engage easily with the development process.

07.08.2019 – MAHLO PRESENTS SOLUTIONS FOR MORE EFFICIENT PRODUCTION / K2019

Mastering the challenges of the plastics industry together

Worldwide known, at home in Germany. What applies to the K Show, which takes place from 16 to 23 October in Düsseldorf, also applies to Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG. The mechanical engineering company from the Bavarian hall will be presenting its renowned solutions for quality control and regulation of critical process parameters at Stand 10G21 at the world’s most important trade fair for the plastics industry.

“The challenges for the plastics industry continue to grow,” says Matthias Wulbeck, Area Sales Manager QMS at Mahlo. “Manufacturers should produce more effectively and save resources at the same time”. To make this possible in practice, Mahlo offers concrete solutions with the Qualiscan QMS quality measurement system. The modular system, which is also composed of sensors and measuring frames, measures, records and controls critical parameters such as basis weight, moisture or layer thickness over the entire fabric width. In this way, the energy efficiency of the production systems can be drastically increased, the raw material costs can be optimized and production can be more sustainable.

At the Mahlo booth, visitors can get to know the latest developments “made in Germany” from the comprehensive sensor portfolio. In live operation, the experts will be demonstrating with measurements on various product samples. One sensor used is the Infrascope NIR sensor, which uses infrared radiation to determine measured values. It monitors the absorption of infrared energy of all components on or in the material web in the near-infrared range. “By evaluating different absorption spectra, the moisture content as well as the basis weight of different other materials in the web can be determined simultaneously,” explains Wulbeck.

Answers to challenges in plastics processing

The Optoscope WLI, on the other hand, uses the white light interference method. It can measure minimal application quantities down to 0.4 µm and is therefore the optimum solution for particularly thin layers where other systems reach their limits. In addition, the latest version of the Optoscope WLI offers an even wider range of coating thicknesses thanks to a high-resolution and highly sensitive spectrometer. “The continuous further development of the sensor has ensured that even more accurate measurement results can be obtained,” says Wulbeck. As a representative of the various measurement frames of the Qualiscan QMS system, Mahlo introduces the Webpro XS-II. The measuring bridge is the most compact version of the O-frame. Installation is therefore possible even in confined spaces.

A visit to the Mahlo stand is therefore worthwhile for the trade fair visitors, because: “With our systems, which we would like to explain to the audience at K in more detail, we would like to provide answers to important and urgent questions for the world of plastics processing”.
