Heimtextil and an in-house show in Obertshausen

KARL MAYER sets the trends with new curtains and environmentally sound terry articles

For the first time after roughly 40 years, KARL MAYER will again take part in Heimtextil in Frankfurt/Main. At the trade fair to be held from 8 to 11 January 2019, this innovative textile machine manufacturer will be introducing some worldwide novelties around the topics of terry fabrics and curtains. For this purpose, the company received from the organizers a stand located in the exhibition’s Trend Forum. There, KARL MAYER will be present on Stand K 65 in Hall 3.0 with an information booth.

Machines and new textile developments will be shown there.

KARL MAYER will pool its new activities in the field of weft warp knits for Heimtextil under the WEFT.FASHION brand. For this purpose, a new weft curtain article will be produced for the in-house show. The trendy pattern is captivating due to an extravagant design in the currently fashionable woven-like look. Sophisticated fancy yarn gives the warp-knitted weft curtain a completely new face. For this article, KARL MAYER announces a new weft-insertion warp knitting machine with an extremely attractive price-performance ratio – entirely in line with WEFT.FASHION: New HOME TEXTILES manufactured with the benefits of WARP KNITTINGefficiency.

This efficient machine will reveal its high performance in Obertshausen by producing a revolutionary textile novelty: a double-face warp-knitted terry fabric with a soft velour layer made from microfibers on the outer face, and an absorbent surface made from cotton on the inner side. This article for bathrobes is not only functional and stylish, it also shows advantages in terms of environmental protection compared to woven counterparts, and this is due to the machine technology used for its manufacture.

CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS

Warp knitted alternatives to save water for an environmentally friendly textile production

CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS are intelligent, end-use applicable concepts as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional production methods.

Environmental protection is an important topic for KARL MAYER, and sustainable production is becoming increasingly important in textile production and therefore also at our customers as well as all textile producers. That is why our support is made up of efficient machines that score highly in terms of environmental protection through the latest technological innovations.

Our latest environmental contribution CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS stands for zero water pollution compared to other production methods especially water jet looms. This protects sustainable resources while contributing to a cleaner environment. 

TM 3 – your environmental  friendly alternative compared to water jet loom machines 

Warp knitted fabrics – ecological advantages for production

Warp knitted fabrics score points, not only with regard to their variety, but also in relation to their ecological benefits.

NO WATER POLLUTION

No water pollution during the production process on TM 3 machines, this also means that no of the sizing agent PVA* is drained. (*Polyvinyl alcohol)

HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY

This warp knitting machines operate at an impressive level of efficiency – with a speed of 2.000 rpm, the TM 3 has a daily production rate of about 3206 sqm/d – one waterjet weaving machines produces only 12 % of a TM 3

LOWER ENERGY CONSUMPTION

The total energy consumption to produce the same amount of fabric is 2,7 times less than with waterjet weaving.

LESS FACTORY SPACE NEEDED

By using Warp Knitting instead of Waterjet Weaving less than one third of  factory space is needed. This means a 3 times higher GDP value per square meter of factor space (for the same output as with waterjet weaving). It means also less amount of sealed industrial land surface, and less investment cost for purchasing the land!

KARL MAYER is launching KM.ON – a new brand for delivering digital solutions at a market leader level – and is also showcasing its own software start-up

Conquering the digital world – with KM.ON

On 15 October 2018, KARL MAYER is unveiling its new digital brand at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2018 in Shanghai. KM.ON stands for “digital driven innovation”. This brand brings together the digital solutions portfolio of the KARL MAYER Digital Factory, a new software start-up, and the entire KARL MAYER Group.

KARL MAYER is systematically driving the topic of digitisation forward in order to seize the opportunities offered by the upheavals of our time. “Digitisation is a basic component of our company strategy. With our corporate start-up, the KARL MAYER Digital Factory, we have a software company at our disposal that can act quickly and customer-oriented on the market. Another integral part of KARL MAYER’s digitisation strategy is its participation in ADAMOS, a strategic alliance of German global market leaders in machine construction and the Software AG. On the basis of the ADAMOS technology, and as part of this network for developments, KARL MAYER is living up with the product portfolio of the new KM.ON brand to its claim of being a global market leader also in terms of digital Solutions,“ says KARL MAYER’s Managing Director, Arno Gärtner.

The KARL MAYER Digital Factory is a pioneering company operating alongside this innovative market leader. It employs a team of software specialists and technology experts in a new, creative environment away from the main company headquarters. When speaking about the objectives, Maximilian Kürig who, together with Antonia Gottschalk is one of the managing directors, says, “This new venture should develop efficient digital solutions quickly and flexibly for the benefit of our customers and deliver them under its own, new umbrella brand,” since “Digital solutions are expanding the possibilities of considerably improving the efficiency of our customers’ production processes and giving them unparalleled competitive advantages.”

KM.ON’s digital portfolio of services will support customers in selected areas and is made up of eight solution categories. k.ey – a conventional industry PC together with an appropriate software – provides access to the solutions. The platform of hardware and software can be installed easily and links the machines securely to the protected cloud. This is based on the expertise gained by participating in ADAMOS with regard to the use of an open IIoT environment which is specifically focused on the needs of machinery and plant construction. This enables the benefits of KM.ON to be exploited easily and securely.

At ITMA ASIA + CITME 2018, the system, which is made up of eight KM.ON solution categories, together with the first apps and solutions covering the three areas of Management, Maintenance and Service, are being presented.

  • k.management enables the customer to look at the current production process, regardless of location and in real time. The production data are displayed clearly on a dashboard. This simple way of delivering information improves process transparency and acts as a valid database for decision-making and planning. These advantages are based on KARL MAYER’s own system of machine networking.
  • The solutions in the k.maintenance category are designed to support customers in their own maintenance operations. As the first solution, KARL MAYER is showcasing the CHECK PARTS app for testing the authenticity of the spare parts, with expanded functions. Above all, the scan-to-order feature is new and makes it even easier to order spare parts online. Automatic data transfer improves the customers’ day-to-day operations when ordering on site, as well as for warehousing.
  • k.service’s product world will, in the long term, include all the functions that manage the communication between the customer and KARL MAYER, should the client require assistance. The ability to make contact quickly, together with efficient communication procedures, guarantees a high level of machine availability. In Shanghai, KARL MAYER is showcasing the latest developments in this system, which is based on the tried-and-tested CONNECT app.

Steps will be taken in the near future to expand the offers of KM.ON. Other solutions and the expansion phases for existing products are already being planned, e.g. in the areas of data analysis, condition monitoring and the digital machine logbook.

Terrot Strickmaschinen

Terrot to exhibit globally top-selling machine I3P 154 and exclusive model Sino SL-4 TC for China at ITMA Asia + CITME 2018  
(Chemnitz, October 2018) From 15 to 19 October 2018 the event of ITMA ASIA + CITME 2018 will offer a huge showcase of cutting-edge solutions for textile makers. 

As one of the leading manufacturers of manually and electronically controlled circular knitting machines in the market, Terrot is exhibitor and welcomes visitors from all sectors of the global textile industry in hall NH, booth number D07. Two models of its well-developed machine portfolio will be demonstrated live:

I3P 154 – Terrot 8-lock technology made in Germany for fine rib, interlock and modified structures

The I3P 154 8-lock machine provides maximum flexibility for different fabric applications in the fields of sports and leisurewear, outerwear and technical textiles.

The top-selling I3P 154 is the origin of all Terrot 8-lock and I3P machines suitable for all kinds of textile applications, especially outerwear fabrics and technical textiles. This machine features an impressive delayed timing up to 6 mm and creates fine rib and modified interlock structures with a high level of efficiency. The abbreviation I3P stands for interlock in three different needle positions – knit, tuck and miss. The result is a striking flexibility in application for the production of outerwear textiles. 1.8 feeds per inch and a maximum speedfactor of 900 SF guarantee high productivity.  Its precise adjustment of delayed or synchronized timing allow impressive delayed timing up to 6 mm for dimensionally stable and durable fabrics. Wide cam tracks suit different yarn counts with special characteristics, like spun yarns (wool, linen, silk, Kevlar, etc.) which are necessary for technical applications.

Special sinkerless technology model Sino SL-4 TC – powerful jersey production

The second exhibition model is the sinkerless Sino SL-4 TC. SINO by Terrot is ready to enter the Chinese market. The model SL-4 TC stands for an easy and extremely efficient single jersey production for leisure and outerwear fabrics. Terrot circular knitting machines by SINO are especially designed to meet the technical requirements of the Chinese market, and are therefore exclusively distributed there. They convince with shorter delivery times and offer great value for money in order to serve the demand for high quality machines in China.

This highly productive single jersey machine is designed without sinkers for advanced fabric quality. Its assembly is very easy and significantly reduces cleaning and maintenance operations on the knitting head. The SL-4 model is available with tubular frame or open width frame. 

Visitors can also receive further information on Terrot’s innovative Corizon technology, a special process which combines spinning and knitting to create a new and unique yarn structure. At Terrot’s booth different fabric samples and general sales information materials are available for interested spinners and knitters.

Terrot is looking forward to meeting you in hall NH, booth number D07.
