Successful technical symposium on sizing technology held by KARL MAYER in India, 23.06.2018
KARL MAYER develops groundbreaking innovations for the warp preparation sector and recently presented a number of specially selected systems at a symposium in Coimbatore. The subject of this technical event on 23 June 2018 was the PROSIZE® technology for efficient and ecological sizing – an extremely interesting topic. More than 100 participants from large weaving and textile companies in southern India travelled to the event, mainly from Coimbatore, Erode, Palladam, Madurai and Namakkal. The welcoming address was accompanied by an introduction to KARL MAYER and a traditional lamp lighting ceremony. The main protagonists in this good-luck ritual were the customers, management and sales representatives of KARL MAYER India and its regional agent, A.T.E.

A marked interest in efficient technology
Navin Agrawal, the Business Head of A.T.E.’s Fabric Forming Division, was responsible for presenting the PROSIZE® technology and explained its technical features and advantages over previous technologies. The people in the auditorium were clearly impressed by the 10% lower consumption of sizing agent, the much higher yarn coverage zone in the size box, the higher production rate and increased weaving efficiency – and these features have already impressed the Indian market. In fact, Navin Agrawal was proud to say that more than 30 PROSIZE® machines have already been installed in India and this is likely to increase. This speaker illustrated his speech with statements from users of the PROSIZE® technology, who cited the positive effects on their productivity, costs and weaving performance.
The participants in the event also listened very attentively to Navin Agrawal’s second session on the WEBSHOP SPARE PARTS system.
Even greater acceptance on an established market
KARL MAYER has a large share of the market in the south of India and enjoys an excellent reputation among commission sizing and weaving companies. The quality and reliability of the machines manufactured by this global market leader are particularly impressive. Some of the participants in the symposium said that models installed in the region 15 and 20 years ago are still running optimally. Nevertheless, there was a great deal of interest in the new technology. The Regional Sales Manager, Peter Obrist, and his sales colleagues at A.T.E. are expecting to receive a large number of enquires about orders following the symposium. The event was a huge success for everyone concerned.
