A striking design as the backdrop to exceptional technical products (c) 2015 Karl Mayer
The plan of most of the visitors specialising in warp knitting and warp preparation at this year’s ShanghaiTex was to go and see what KARL MAYER was exhibiting first. The stand of this renowned manufacturer in the Knitting & Hosiery Machinery Zone in hall W1 was eye-catching, even from some distance away. Huge lights made from textile-covered tubes poured light in an alternating play of colours onto an 600 m2 area where the machines, décor islands, partitioned areas for holding discussions, and meeting points were all located.
The stand, with its exclusive anthracite colour scheme stood out effectively from the mainly white stands of the other exhibitors – a futuristic design that was saying: high-tech systems are on show here.
More specifically, KARL MAYER was showing in Shanghai the new TM 4 TS EL terry warp knitting machine for processing spun yarns, an HKS 4-M with an even better cost:benefit ratio than the previous model, and the MJ 59/1 S - a Jacquardtronic® Lace machine with a special bar configuration. KARL MAYER was also showing its sizing technology for the warp preparation sector.
An open-house event held at KARL MAYER (China) on the second day of the fair was showcasing more market-oriented production technology.
KARL Mayer’s subsidiary in Changzhou City was hosting a machine show and demonstrating two double-bar raschel machines, the RD 7/2-12 EN and the RDJ 5/1. An MJ 59/1 B, with a working width of 210", was also demonstrating its performance features.
With the products that KARL MAYER was exhibiting at ShanghaiTex, this company was showing its customers how to open up new business fields and expand their position on the market. Huge crowds of people flocked to KARL MAYER’s stand, and this well-known textile machinery builder was extremely upbeat about its participation in the fair.
