Knitting & Hosiery
A September packed with trade fairs
Irantex – an industry fair that is in an upbeat mood
KARL MAYER will start its trade fair “marathon’ by participating in Irantex. The 23rd International Exhibition of Textile Machinery, Raw Materials, Home Textiles, Embroidery Machines and Textile Products will take place from 4 to 7 September 2017 on the site of the Tehran International Permanent Fairground. KARL MAYER will be showing a wide range of samples and information material in the German hall. In hall number 38, which is located in the middle of the site, this company has reserved an area on the joint official stand, which covers an area of 350 m².
Profiting from a changing sector – with Techtextil India
There will also be a German pavilion at Techtextil India, which will take place from 13 to 15 September in the Bombay Exhibition Centre. KARL MAYER will be one of the many exhibitors on the joint stand, and will use the opportunity to show its range of warp knitting and warp preparation machines for producing technical textiles. “In India, as well, conventional textile producers are increasingly looking for another string to their bow and for alternative business fields, and they therefore represent an important target group for our versatile technical solutions,” says the Senior Sales Manager, Bastian Fritsch. The products manufactured on KARL MAYER’s machines are used as blood vessels in the medical sector, as advertising billboards on building façades, as tarpaulins for securing loads on trucks and lorries, and for providing strength and stability when used as geogrids in earthworks. These are just a few of the many applications that are also important in India.
Composite Europe will be demonstrating strong solutions for fibre-reinforced composites
KARL MAYER will be exhibiting at Composite Europe with its subsidiary, KARL MAYER Technische Textilien GmbH. This manufacturer will be exhibiting as an indispensable partner to the composites sector at this European trade fair, which will take place from 19 to 21 September 2017.
KARL MAYER Technische Textilien can supply the COP MAX 4 (Figs. 1+2) multiaxial warp knitting machine for producing high-performance composites. This is a flexible, all-round machine for producing multilayered, multiaxial textiles with angles varying from a maximum of +20° to -20°. The COP MAX 5, which is especially suitable for processing carbon fibres, will also be on show. This machine can be used to produce multiaxial textiles in very low weights from carbon fibres. The fibres can be delivered both online or offline. For the offline version, KARL MAYER Technische Textilien can supply the UD 700 fibre spreading unit for spreading the fibre tapes.
Information on these technical systems and product samples can be obtained from the Composites Germany Pavilion, hall 4, stand A43_c. This joint stand will bring together members of the Composites Germany Trade Association.
