Post nine months of intense preparation, the Karl Mayer Workshop (in) Vietnam has been officially launched with a grand opening ceremony last month. Representatives from Illies, Kuna Robert and Wu Chun Yan, the trainers who provided training courses for the Karl Mayer Vietnam Workshop, and Eddy Ho, Sales Manager of Karl Mayer, Hong Kong welcomed participants.
The visitors – customers from Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh-City – attended the premiere event held November 13 to 17, 2017, followed by a second workshop held from November 20-24, 2017. Both workshops were conducted in Ho-Chi-Minh-City. Karl Mayer’s key focus was to expand the Southeast Asian market so that more Vietnamese manufacturers would get technical information and would be convinced to purchase Karl Mayer warp knitting machines.
To meet current market demand, Karl Mayer will provide more product-related learning courses to help customers get familiar with the theory and practical hands on operation of Karl Mayer’s machine. Trainees from this workshop in Vietnam who attended the one week WKB training course got extensive knowledge, including that of ‘machines theory’; ‘study of warp knitted fabric constructions’; ‘textile calculations’ and hands-on practical training experience working on machines. Karl Mayer Workshop Vietnam offered additional courses on ‘introduction to machine maintenance’ and ‘article change’.
Other areas of knowledge included: Introduction “Stitch formation“ Warp Knitting’; Tricot machine structure and technical features; Function and explanation of the knitting element movements and their synchronisation with help of chain links; Explanation of the KAMCOS in details; and each participant got hands on practice experience working on the machine.
