KARL MAYER NEWS

An exhibition full of future opportunities !!!

Digitalisation and sustainability – the top themes of KARL MAYER’s presentation at ITMA ASIA + CITME, 15.–19.10.2018, stand B 11, hall 4, in the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai

KARL MAYER will be presenting its latest innovations at ITMA ASIA + CITME, which will be held from 15 to 19 October 2018. This global player is using its latest developments to tackle the changes taking place in the world today.

“The mega trends of digitalisation and sustainability are changing the world as we know it. As an innovative global market leader, we see these changes as an opportunity for our customers. At ITMA ASIA+ CITME, we will be showing our visitors how KARL MAYER is implementing these strategic themes, digitalisation and sustainability by delivering integrated solutions offering a wide range of advantages,” says KARL MAYER’s Managing Director, Arno Gärtner.

KARL MAYER can be found in the Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai on stand B 11, hall 4, where a new umbrella brand will be launched, offering innovative digital solutions known as the KARL MAYER Digital Factory, which was introduced last year. A look at KARL MAYER’s CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS will also be on the cards. Other highlights include a performance show of the latest generation of machines, a fashion show showcasing decorative, trendsetting fabrics, and a presentation of the Technical Textiles centre of excellence. An in-house show at KARL MAYER (CHINA) in Changzhzou will also be held at the same time as the fair, scheduled for 15 to 18 October.

Development of the best digital solutions

As a pioneer in textile machinery building, KARL MAYER is following a broad digitisation strategy. An important element of this strategy is to support its customers with new digital solutions at a market leader level.

The initiatives for this strategy are being coordinated by Antonia Gottschalk, the Head of Digitisation. The expertise for doing this is based on an efficient network. Since March 2018, KARL MAYER has been part of ADAMOS, an alliance made up of industrial and software companies. At the end of 2017, KARL MAYER also set up its own start-up company in Frankfurt, known as the Digital Factory, for developing new, innovative digital business models, products and services. In future, these will be combined under a new umbrella brand, which is being launched at ITMA ASIA + CITMA. “Management is focusing on the KM Digital Factory. Together with our involvement in ADAMOS, the new company will enable us to quickly make the best digital solutions available for delivering maximum benefit to our customers,” says Arno Gärtner.

Networked machines

Knowing what is going on and being informed at all times, regardless of where we are – mobile digital solutions have been making inroads into out daily life for many years now and, have changed our perception of what is current.

For the first time, KARL MAYER will present its own solution for networking its machines. This digital solution will provide its customers with transparency in real time regarding the performance of their machines, and can be used in the company’s own network with very little modification.

Integrated sustainability

“We care about your future” is what KARL MAYER is all about. Its philosophy is to take responsibility also for future generations. What KARL MAYER is doing to promote sustainability will be on show at the fair and on the internet at www.CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS.

The environmental aspects of this include the LEO® Low Energy Option, which should enable energy consumption during machine operation to be reduced by between 9.5 and 13 %, depending on the type of machine. Costs and CO2 emissions should be reduced at the same time.

Intelligent, end-use-applicable concepts should also reduce environmental loads, as a technology transfer project being carried out by the central government and regional authorities in Wujiang Shengze, China, is demonstrating. One of the aims of this project is to replace the environmentally harmful looms in this industrial area with KARL MAYER’s warp knitting machines offering a comparable product portfolio. The TM 3, with its broad product portfolio, is a particularly good alternative. This tricot machine will be shown in operation at the exhibition, together with examples of its uses.

KARL MAYER will be showing the TERRY.ECO concept for the environmentally friendly production of terry goods, the core element of which is the TM 4 TS-EL machine. Depending on the type of product being produced, this cotton terry warp knitting machine can produce up to 250 % more fabric and consumes approximately 87 % less energy per kg of textile than air-jet looms. Sizing can be dispensed with, which reduces energy, water and effluent loads. The TM 4 TS-EL will be on show at KARL MAYER’s in-house show in Changhzou.

With its PROSIZE® sizing machine, KARL MAYER is offering weaving companies involved in the production of terry goods a sizing machine based on the concept of sustainability. With this machine, the sizing agent is applied by a highly efficient, intelligent process. Compared to conventional methods, this reduces the consumption of sizing agents by up to 10% and reduces bath volumes. A reduced size consumption also means less energy consumption when preparing the chemicals and for desizing. Also, less effluent is produced. The core element of the PROSIZE® system, the VSB Size Box, will be on show in Shanghai.

The latest generation of machines

For the first time, the widest high-speed tricot machine in the world, the HKS 3-M, 280″, will be demonstrated to the public in operation at the exhibition. This new machine delivers maximum flexibility for the usual product repertoire. Unlike previously, articles of different widths and also more fabric webs can be produced simultaneously on just one machine. The unique performance of this machine will be demonstrated as it produces a velour fabric in a gauge of E 32.

The first TM model with KAMCOS® 2 facility is also being showcased. KARL MAYER’S TM 3, 186″, equipped with the next generation of the KARL MAYER Command System, retains the tried-and-tested features of the HKS version. These include an operator interface with functions based on smartphone technology and an integrated laser stop system as well as data access via mobile devices using the KARL MAYER CONNECT app. In Shanghai, this efficient, flexible production machine will be producing a tough fabric in a gauge of E 32 with ecological benefits. This textile can be used as a substitute for fabrics produced by water-jet weaving, with its high effluent loads.

For the warp preparation sector, KARL MAYER will also be showing the innovative VSB Size Box at the fair. Instead of the usual immersion and bath application process, the Prosize® operates with three, highly turbulent, homogeneous application zones, spray bar technology and a subsequent application/squeeze roller system. This reduces the volume of the size bath and sizing additives, thus decreasing the environmental loads. Other benefits include an extremely uniform size film and less fibre dust – guaranteeing maximum weaving efficiency – and a 20% larger yarn coating zone.

KARL MAYER will also be showcasing the ISODIRECT direct warping machine – a world first with a unique cost:benefit ratio. This all-round machine can process every type of staple-fibre yarn and produces high-quality beams at warping speeds of up to 1,000 m/min-1.

Textiles with trendsetting features

This demonstration of KARL MAYER’s technology and strategies will be complemented by a presentation of the wide range of applications of warp-knitted fabrics. Seductive lace, high-performance fabrics for sportswear, original creations for athleisure wear, and apparel fabrics with a certain pizzazz – KARL MAYER’s textile innovations show the wide variety of warp-knitted textiles available and are setting the trend in every sector.

Building on textiles

KARL MAYER has the right technology and expertise to cater for a wide range of applications in the technical textiles sector. The company’s weft-insertion, biaxial and multiaxial warp knitting machines can be found in the plants of manufacturers of inlays, tarpaulins and advertising substrates, as well as in those of producers of geogrids, composites and automotive fabrics. The focus of the exhibition at ITMA ASIA + CITME will be on textiles for the construction sector. The Chinese construction sector is one of the growth areas in the country but, unlike the construction industries in Europe and America, for example, the Chinese building industry focuses on conventional materials. Textiles can offer the construction sector many advantages, especially when used in concrete components. By replacing conventional steel reinforcements with carbon- or glass-fibre textiles, the amount of concrete used can be reduced by up to 70%. Other promising applications for warp-knitted structures are in tear-resistant plaster grids for increasing the tear resistance within the plaster, self-adhesive tape for repairing holes and cracks in walls, cost-effective, flexible roof canopies and bitumen roofing materials with excellent mechanical properties. Examples of these types of textiles will be used to illustrate the advantages of warp-knitted building textiles during the exhibition.

An in-house show with exclusive machines

KARL MAYER (CHINA) is sending out invitations to attend an in-house show with performance demonstrations of selected machines for the Chinese market from 15 to 18 October in Changzhzou.

The new COP 5 M-EL, 180″ five-bar tricot machine will be unveiled to the public for the first time in Changzhzou. This machine will be producing a shoe fabric in a gauge of E 20, just one of the fabrics in its extensive production repertoire. The electronic guide bar control facility and five guide bars make the machine extremely flexible.

A new machine will be representing the RD machine series at the in-house show. This new model is part of the RD 7 series and puts the emphasis on speed. This high-speed machine will be producing a shoe fabric at the in-house show in a gauge of E 22, and will be demonstrating a speed that has never been achieved before.

KARL MAYER’s TM 4 TS-EL is a versatile terry warp knitting machine for processing cotton. In Changzhou, the TM 4 TS-EL, 186″ will be producing a double-face fabric in a gauge of E 28 with fluffy micro-fibres on the outside and absorbent cotton on the inside. Its technology makes this machine an environmentally friendly alternative to looms.

From its range of warp preparation equipment, KARL MAYER will be showing a LONG CHAIN BEAMER (LCB) and a BALL WARPER (BW) for processing denim, especially for rope dyeing. The efficiency of the LCB may be up to 20 % higher than comparable machines, and the beams are of the highest quality. The BW produces high quality warp balls and guarantees maximum performance. KARL MAYER will also be showing the ISOWARP, a sectional warping machine with an excellent cost:benefit ratio for standard applications. Compared to similar machines on the market, the performance of this machine may be as much as 30 % higher in warp preparation, and weaving efficiency may be up to 3 % higher.

14.09.2018 EXCHANGE AMONG EXPERTS – MAHLO

Mahlo presentation at Spunlace Nonwoven Symposium in Jiangyin

That the Chinese market for nonwoves has explodes over the last several years is not a secret anymore. There is hardly an industrial branch that is not dependent on products made of the versatile fiber, no matter if it’s the hygiene sector, the automotive or the construction industry. In order to be always up-to-date on the technical developments, the China Nonwoven Association organizes a seminar for Spunlace Nonwoven every year. Mahlo’s China Representative Frank Fei also had the chance to transmit his profound expertise to the expert audience.

More than 230 visitors responded to the invitation to Jiangyin City in the Jiangsu province to exchange and collect new knowledge. Among the participants were the organization’s responsible persons, managing directors and technical leaders from nonwoven manufacturers, R&D people in and equipment providers. For them, Frank Fei presented in detail the sensor Infrascope NIR for measuring basis weight, moisture and fiber content from the wide product range of Mahlo quality measurement system Qualiscan QMS-12. The sensor measures the reflection on infrared energy and determines the requested parameters. It can simultaneously measure two values and is suitable for many materials. Due to a very high spectral resolution, the sensor can distinguish between components with very similar IR absorption. And all that works without the use of radioactive isotopes. In addition to that, Fei compared the results of a basis weight measurement on Polypropylene Nonwoven with beta-radiation and NIR. Furthermore, the expert presented how one can improve product quality and lower costs at the same time.

The highly interested audience engaged in a lively discussion afterwards and many seized the chance to talk about how the spunlace nonwoven production in China can be promoted further.    

125,000th KARL MAYER machine crowns a 50-year partnership with Dong-Jin Textile from the sports shoe industry

One company has hit the ground running – with a milestone machine

Dong-Jin Textile is one of the most well-known players in the sports shoe fabric sector and works for big brand names worldwide. This company has its headquarters in Busan / Korea, and just like sports men and women, speed and agility are what have made it successful – and this manufacturer also demands the same high performance of its production machines. In the spring of 2018, Dong-Jin Textile expanded its production capacity with the acquisition of one of KARL MAYER’s newest machines. This new jacquard raschel machine has been specifically modified and offers maximum patterning flexibility. It operates at a unique speed of 1,200 min-1 and is also special for another reason – it is the 125,000th machine to be delivered by KARL MAYER and is a measure of the company’s high level of success.

This high-speed machine was sent quickly by air on its way to the customer’s site. It reached Incheon Airport on 14th July and immediately went into production, without first undergoing processing trials in the customer’s research department, which had been the original plan.

 

Always one step ahead

Dong-Jin Textile exclusively manufactures shoe fabrics for the sports industry and is one of the biggest global suppliers in this sector. This company is also one of the biggest in the country’s textile sector. It has a workforce of 600 and also uses a large number of fabric producers acting as subcontractors in the southeast of the Korean Peninsula especially. Dong-Jin Textile owes its success to its exceptional closeness to the market. The president, Woo Chul, Choi, has excellent contacts with the brand names operating in the sports shoe sector, and provides them with textile solutions so that they are always one step ahead. This entrepreneur has demonstrated his pioneering spirit in his trendsetting collections. He has taken new paths with great decisiveness. “I greatly value Mr. Choi as a business partner. He has a phenomenal knowledge about warp knitting. It is amazing that the president of such a company knows so many details about our machines. He is able to make quick decisions and always keeps his word.” says Rainer Mueller. KARL MAYER’s Sales Director for Asia deals directly with the president when handling machine projects. He relies on high-tech machines to produce his innovative textiles – on the machines manufactured by KARL MAYER.

A long-standing partnership

Dong-Jin Textile and KARL MAYER have been working together for 50 years. The company founder, Byung Kil, Choi and his son, Woo Chul, Choi, who now manages the company, have bought more than 250 warp knitting machines – exclusively from KARL MAYER with the support of its long-term partner Illies. The company has invested in high-speed tricot machines, double-bar and jacquard raschel machines as well as warping machines.

The machines are operating in several factories in South Korea and Vietnam. Dong-Jin Textile also intends manufacturing in Indonesia from the second half of 2019. KARL MAYER is ready to give Mr. Choi the utmost support for this new challenge.

Interview statements by Woo Chul, Choi, President of Dong-Jing Textile, on the occasion of the handover of the anniversary machine:

11.09.2018 MAHLO – HIGHLY INTERESTED EXPERT AUDIENCE, IN-DEPTH CONVERSATIONS

Mahlo is satisfied with CINTE participation

From September 4 to 6, Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG showcases at CINTE Techtextil in China. At the end, the leading German manufacturer of quality measurement systems, process control and weft straighteners is happy with the show’s outcome. “The CINTE might not be one of the biggest fairs in its sector but the quality of its visitors and exhibitors is very high, especially in the nonwoven area”, says Clemens Kaplan, Area Sales Manager East Asia at Mahlo.

Image

The in-depth conversations, which Kaplan as well as China Representative Frank Fei and its team held, revolved around the possibilities of a more efficient and high-quality production and therefore around the Mahlo Qualiscan QMS-12. The quality measurement system can depended on the type of sensor record important parameters such as basis weight, thickness and moisture. Up to five sensors that traverse on sturdy scanners continuously collect data and report them to the interface. That way, nonwoven and technical textile producers can check and control their product specifications at any time. Due to the broad portfolio of sensors, almost every requirement can be covered during the quality-conscious production of technical textiles and nonwovens.

Image

Especially the NIR sensor based on infrared technology appeals to nonwoven producers because it can measure the two most important parameters basis weight and moisture at the same time. In addition to that, importing the NIR is way easier compared to beta or x-ray sensors because it does not emit harmful radiation and is therefore not subject to radiation protection.

Image

“The nonwoven industry in China is market with huge opportunities”, says Kaplan. The state shows immense growth and ambitious plans in this sector. The overall production of technical textiles and nonwovens is set to be more than 22 million tons and 30 per cent of global production in the year 2020.
