HIGHLIGHTS TECHTEXTIL AND IN-HOUSE SHOW:

  • TEXTILE CIRCUIT

    Electrically conductive textiles are a hot topic at the moment and can be produced in a variety of different ways. The multibar raschel machines can be used to convert electrically conductive textiles with maximum flexibility in terms of geometry, dimensions and location.

  • RAPID TEXTILE – the quick way to new solutions

    The combination of additive production and warp-knitting technology results in functional knitwear using 3D printing. RAPID TEXTILE will be part of the TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, a platform that offers the space to try things out, develop new products and think outside the box.

  • New spacer fabrics with plastic effects

    A new model of a double-bar raschel machine is now enabling completely new designs: warp-knitted textiles with decorative relief surfaces. The designs can be shaped and positioned almost without any restrictions and can also be combined with openwork designs.

  • Weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles for security panels and efficient cut protection

    Burglars frequently use chainsaws and drills during attempted break-ins, but they can be stopped effectively by a new type of patented security panel with weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles in the core. On contact with the cut-resistant textiles, the rotating tools quickly release large amounts of fibres from the material. These become entangled and the tool is stopped. The highly effective security panels are also very light and can be applied very easily to e.g. security doors, armoured vehicles, vaults and cash machines.

  • KM.ON – digital solutions

    KARL MAYER is also a trendsetter in the field of digitisation. This manufacturer has grouped all its digital solutions under the KM.ON brand, and will also be showcasing this system on its stand at the Techtextil.

  • RACOP – Raschel machine for web bonding

    A RACOP-NW, 160″, gauge E 14, is producing a textile for the application area heating textiles at the in-house show. The latest model of the RACOP NW series produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs and offers a number of technology-related advantages.

    IN-HOUSE SHOW

    During the same time the Techtextil will take place, we will have an In-house Show in Obershausen. At this show a model of the latest RACOP-NW series will be demonstrated. This efficient nonwovens machine produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs, a technology that offers many advantages.

20.03.2019 MAHLO READY FOR SAIGONTEX

Straightening technology and process control for Vietnamese Textiles

With the Vietnam Textile & Garment Industry Expo, SaigonTex for short, the most important trade show for the Vietnamese textile industry takes place from 10 to 13 April 2019 – in a market that is still developing rapidly. That Mahlo GmbH is the perfect partner for a successful future, visitor can make sure of at booth A1 1G-8. The German machine builder will present straightening technology and concepts for process control together with its sales and service partner Thach Anh Vang Co.

The strategy of the Vietnamese textile industry includes offering high quality products to reasonable prices. That is why producers always are on the lookout for new technology. Mahlo provides the perfect solutions for that. The automatic weft straightener Orthopac RVMC-15 unites over 70 years of experience in machine building with latest developments. The result is the Mahlo-invented opto-electronic scanner for distortion detection using an oscillating lens and a re-engineered digital signal processor. It is probably the most sensitive and versatile system in the market.

In the area of process control, Mahlo introduces the Optipac VMC-15. The modular system 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. For Mahlo clients, that means they can save several million euros by investing in a Mahlo process control system. 

In order to inform decision makers in Vietnam concretely and effectively about the advantages of Mahlo solutions, Mahlo’s Area Sales Manager Stephan Kehry and the trade show team welcome interested visitors at booth A1 1G-8.

13.03.2019 MAHLO AMERICA INC. TAKES PART IN IDEA AND ICE

Two important trade shows are right around the corner

Mahlo America Inc. is ready for two important trade shows in its target markets on home soil. At the IDEA show for nonwovens, held from 25 to 28 March in Miami, Mahlo presents on-line measurement solutions for the nonwoven industry that include basis weight, thickness, moisture, coating add-on, density, and air permeability. Coater and converter can get acquainted with the machine builder’s technology for controlling production of films, foils and paper at the ICE from 9 to 11 April in Louisville, Kentucky.

“One of the devices featured at IDEA will be the non-contact laser sensor Calipro DML that is part of our web gauging system Qualiscan QMS-12”, Alan Lavore, Executive Vice President of Mahlo America Inc., explains. By determining the exact distance between the gauging sensor and the product surface, the Calipro DML measures thickness or coating thickness of various materials, including all types of nonwovens. Also on display is the new solid state infrared sensor Infralot IMF-15 for non-nuclear measurement of basis weight, moisture, and coating add-on. The sensor is available in a reflection or transmission version. While other filter wheel systems have to measure the wavelengths for dry (reference) and wet conditions with a time delay, Mahlo’s new simultaneous filter measures all wavelengths simultaneously and at the same spot. This eliminates measurement inaccuracies and allows a same-spot measurement of reference and absorption resonances.

The Infralot IMF, however, is not only a great help for nonwoven fabricants. At ICE, coater and converter can convince themselves of its necessity in a smooth production process. The device helps to gauge and regulate extrusion coatings, aqueous coatings, moisture, and film thickness. For special cases such as very thin films, Mahlo America presents the sensors Optoscope WLI. With the help of white-light interference phenomenon, the sensor is able to measure varnish coats down to a thickness of 0.4 µm.

Equipped with these or other Mahlo systems, fabricants can reduce the use of energy and raw material while increasing product quality at the same time. That can make the difference between them and their competition. The experts at each trade show are happy to give detailed information.

The combination of new technologies, such as 3D printing, and the traditional textile sector opens up many opportunities for product development. To explore these possibilities is the aim of the workshop called „Additive manufacturing for the textile industry“. The event took place for the first time in January 2018, it was extremely successful and will now be repeated.

The next workshop will take place on 13th May 2019, which is the day before the start of Techtextil in Frankfurt/Main. In its role as host, the cooperation partner KARL MAYER will again make its premises available to the event. The organizer, the Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland e. V. (TITV), expects roughly 100 guests. Nine speakers from research and practice will highlight the topic of „Additive manufacturing“ in particular. In this respect, the company ViscoTec Pumpen- und Dosiertechnik GmbH will give a lecture on viscous media of the future, Heraeus Noblelight will present IR emitters, and DFKI will provide a contribution on the subject of „Additive manufacturing of modules and housings for electronic components on textile“. Besides, Pedex GmbH will deliver a speech on materials for filaments for FFF-3D printing.

Highlights from the universe of high-performance warp knits at Techtextil 2019

KARL MAYER is inviting the sector to an exchange of ideas at Techtextil, stand 3.0/E 18, 14.-17.5.2019 in Frankfurt

KARL MAYER is showcasing warp-knitted textiles having an exceptional level of performance in hall 3.0/E 18 at Techtextil 2019 in Frankfurt. On show will be products with integrated electrical conductivity and shaping characteristics from the new TEXTILE MAKERSPACE platform, an extremely efficient textile solution for protecting buildings, and a completely new generation of warp-knitted spacer textiles. KARL MAYER is also inviting people to attend an in-house show, to be held at the same time as the fair, at its headquarters in nearby Obertshausen. This event is easily accessible by bus transfer and will be premiering a new nonwovens machine for the visitors. KARL MAYER is also a trendsetter in the field of digitisation. This manufacturer has grouped all its digital solutions under the KM.ON brand, and will also be showcasing this system on its stand at the Techtextil.

RAPID TEXTILE– the quick way to new solutions

Textiles with an excellent performance and lower manufacturing costs can be produced by combining the possibilities of additive production with warp knitting technology. Examples of this include warp knits functionalised by 3D printing and these are being presented at Techtextil.

KARL MAYER has grouped together all its activities relating to the use of new technologies and innovative products under the concept of RAPID TEXTILE. They form part of the TEXTILE MAKERSPACE system, a platform that offers the space to try things out, develop new products and think outside the box.

TEXTILE CIRCUIT – the quick way to electrifying designs

Electrically conductive textiles are a hot topic at the moment and can be produced in a variety of different ways. The easiest method is to directly incorporate conductive yarns during fabric production on the machine.

TEXTILE CIRCUIT, another element of TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, shows the potential of warp knitting here. Conductive zones offering maximum flexibility in terms of geometry, dimensions and location can be produced on KARL MAYER’s multibar raschel machines. Examples include inductive charging stations and the remote control of robots, and these are being demonstrated at Techtextil.

New solutions for patterns with plastic effects

Double-bar raschel machines have become firmly established in the production of warp-knitted spacer textiles featuring a variety of designs. A new model is now enabling completely new designs to be produced, i.e. warp-knitted textiles with decorative, relief surfaces. Instead of the spacer layer, three-dimensional design elements are worked on the upper and lower sides. The designs can be shaped and positioned almost without any restrictions, and can be combined with openwork designs. This is opening up a new dimension in near-net-shaped production in particular.

Security panels made from weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles – efficient cut protection for buildings and vehicles

Burglars frequently use chainsaws and drills during attempted break-ins, but they can be stopped effectively by a new type of patented security panel with weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles in the core. On contact with the cut-resistant textiles, the rotating tools quickly release large amounts of fibres from the material. These become entangled and the tool is stopped. The highly effective security panels are also very light and can be applied very easily to e.g. security doors, armoured vehicles, vaults and cash machines.

New raschel machine for web bonding – more opportunities on the nonwovens market

A model in the new RACOP-NW series will be demonstrated at an in-house show in Obertshausen at the same time as Techtextil. This efficient nonwovens machine produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs, a technology that offers many advantages. This process produces nonwovens having textile characteristics, such as elasticity and voluminosity, which is not the case when using chemical bonding agents. Furthermore, much less energy is consumed compared to thermal processes. In addition to these general advantages, the new RACOP-NW model also offers an exceptional cost:benefit ratio. It is also extremely flexible and can, therefore, be used in a variety of applications. A RACOP-NW, 160″, gauge E 14, is producing a textile for the application area heating textiles at the in-house show.

Seductive velour for the skin

Ultra-soft stretch velour produced on an HKS-3M brings a touch of cosiness to apparel

The supersoft, stretch, high-end velour fabric on this page is setting the trend in the apparel sector. This cuddlesome textile caresses the skin and body. With its gentle drape, it contours the female form with seductive lines, and its attractive shimmer adds a touch of glamour.

It can be used to produce eyecatching evening wear, which emphasising the body, as well as comfortable lounge wear for relaxing on the sofa. The ultra-comfortable pieces range from silky pyjamas, through tracksuits, to bathrobes and under garments, and have also been acceptable attire for the street since 2017. This casual look is in high demand from both men and women alike, especially during the cold months of the year.

Behind this warp-knitted textile, with its high powers of seduction and exceptional wear comfort, is a machine that delivers maximum performance. The fabric was produced on an HKS 3-M, 280″, in E 32 on KARL MAYER’s stand at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2018 in Shanghai. To produce the fabric, ground guide bars, GB 2 and GB 3, worked a counter-notation tricot lapping from polyester, FDY and elastane. GB 1 was also processing polyester. In combination with a textured microfibre yarn as a DTY version, an extra-fluffy surface was produced after raising.

The underlaps made from the microfibre yarns are raised to produce the velour layer – a process that requires experience and know-how. With stretch fabrics in particular, there is a danger that the fabric will tear if the process is not carried out correctly. As long as all the processing stages are managed correctly, a durable, easy-care fabric can be produced. The technology of warp knitting means that the fibres in the pile of the textile have a high pullout resistance, since the pile-forming layer is firmly tied into the ground by stitches.
