The global market leader and trendsetter in the production of warp knitting and warp preparation machines, Karl Mayer, is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2017, and is marking this milestone by holding a series of special events with in-house shows held at its different subsidiaries. As part of this, the company will hold a show in China’s city Changzhou from November 23 to 25. On display will be Karl Mayer’s DS OPTO, a flexible direct warping machine for rigid filament yarns for production from short and sample warp beams to standard block color warp beams. The ISOSIZE is a conventional sizing machine based on a modular design, which can cater to every market demand. The beaming machine, the size box, and the drying unit are important components of the line. Karl Mayer demonstrates efficient, high-precision technology for the denim sector in the shape of its long chain beamer. This tried-and-tested machine is used in rope dyeing for converting ropes to yarn sheets of exceptionally high quality.
The new TMJ 4/1-T terry warp knitting machine in a gauge of E 24 is used for producing patterned towels will also be shocased. The RDJ 5/1 double-bar raschel machine with piezo jacquard technology, also in a gauge of E 24, produces a spacer textile with an innovative multicoloured design for use as a shoe fabric. A brightly coloured ground surface is combined with a discreetly coloured cover face with a mesh pattern to produce this striking look. The coloured spots showing through create a butterfly-like pattern. All the main pattern elements of the final shoe are incorporated in the mirror images of the two halves of the design.
