KARL MAYER Technische Textilien GmbH was delighted to welcome a large number of visitors to Techtextil. Renowned representatives of associations and companies from the Chinese textile and nonwovens sector came to the KARL MAYER stand on 15 May 2019 to get to know the important player in the composites and technical textiles sector. The following day, KARL MAYER was given further insights into the company during a factory tour of the Chemnitz site, a journey through the world of applications for the manufacturer’s machines and a presentation of the latest developments. In particular, the innovative weft insertion machine WFTTRONIC® 2G and a new system for the production of thermoplastic UD tapes were crowd-pullers. “Many of the guests were really interested and had numerous technical questions,” said Marcus Kube, COO of KARL MAYER Technische Textilien GmbH, summing up the event. The get-together underlined the company’s position in the market and helped to advance the subject of technical textiles.
Finally, Marcus Kube travelled with the Chinese delegation to Dresden to visit the venerable city and the Technical University of Dresden. KARL MAYER Technical Textiles has been working together with the Technical University of Dresden for a long time, for example on the subject of textile reinforced concrete.
