Mahlo showcases straightening and process control systems at EXINTEX2018 ( 02.10 -05.10 )

                  EFFICIENCY AND QUALITY ARE MAIN GOALS

Mahlo showcases straightening and process control systems at Exintex

No matter of textile, knitwear or leather: at the Exintex show in Mexico all important branches of the textile industry will come together from 2 to 5 October. The competent audience from all around the world can gather information from Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG at booth 706-711 on how they can get the most out of their production processes.

Area Sales Manager Miguel Lessel, who welcomes visitors at the joint booth with Blutec and Tecnoeuropa, knows the special challenges for the Central American market well: “The climate for textile producers has not always been friendly. Especially the cheaper competition from Asia has bothered the sector.” But for the past several years one could see an upward trend. “To pull ahead of the competitors, producers strive to be more efficient and quality oriented. 

Mahlo offers the right solutions to fulfill these goals. The automatic weft straightener Orthopac RVMC-15 detects and eliminates warping on running web with speeds up to 250 meter per minute. For production that means less rejects and therefore lower costs. End user in return gets high-quality products. Contributing to that is also the Famacont PMC for control of weft thread and course density. People interested can hear all about the operating principle with the help of a demo tower and different web samples at the Mahlo booth. Another big topic at Exintex is process control. The modular system Optipac VMC optimizes drying or fixing processes as well as the processes all around the stenter. Translated to the service life of a stenter, the energy costs amount to roughly 10 million euro. With the right straightening ad control technology, up to 30 % of this sum can be saved. The Mahlo team is looking forward to find the best solutions together with their clients.

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.

TERROT THE WORLD CHAMPION …

Terrot Rundstrickmaschinen

Terrot is world champion in fine gauge transfer fabrics

The football World Cup is in full progress and everybody is observing the football players on the field. Their clothes and abilities are always under discussion. As manufacturer for circular knitting machines Terrot has a great interest in sportswear and football clothing.

The global knitwear market has strategically developed over the past years. The demand of athletic and sportswear is growing year by year and shows great potential. Until 2020 the share of knitwear fabrics is expected to grow further. The sportswear sector will drive the future growth. New technologies like the transfer technology by Terrot are important to support the positive drive.

 The traditional manufacturer from Germany is known for its modern and innovative technologies, which have been meeting the constantly changing market and costumer requirements for 155 years. One of the latest innovations is Terrot’s UCC 572-T which features the production of fine gauge transfer fabrics up to E24. The model is perfect for production of modern and innovative sportswear textiles and can knit combinations of single and double jersey structures in the upper gauge range as well as hole structures. This transfer technology is so precise that it is possible to influence the clothing characteristics during the knitting process – single knit areas boost breathability and double knits are essential for more coverage and adding texture to the final fabric. Experts call this technology “Body Mapping”, which is particularly of importance for creating comfortable sports apparel of perfect fit and functionality.

UCC 572-T E24 (Breitwickelabzieher) // UCC 572-T E24 (open width take-down)

 Around the world the UCC 572-T und its fine gauge technology enjoys a high level of trust. Leading sportswear brands, e.g. Nike are convinced of this technology already: Nike goes ahead and supplied different National Teams, like Brasilia, Portugal or England for the football World Cup. Their Nike Vapor Kits are specially crafted by applying this knitting technique, called “Nike AeroSwift Technology”. Compared to standard transfer machines up to E18, Nike emphasizes the new technology is lighter, more sweat absorbent and approximately half the weight of traditional fabrics for sportswear.

 The UCC 572-T is Terrot’s flagship in the production of sportswear and has an excellent reputation on the market. The model convinces from start to finish with its sophisticated transfer technology and before the end of the football World Cup it will be proven: Terrot and the UCC 572-T are already the world champions in fine gauge transfer fabrics up to E24. With regard to the football World Cup Terrot and its jerseys will be World Champions on the field, because both teams – France and Croatia – wear shirts based on Terrot’s fine gauge transfer technology.
