New warp knitting machines for spacer fabrics
Wednesday, 07 January 2015

Obertshausen - Warp knitting machine builder Karl Mayer has developed two new machines for the production of breathable, tough and stylish, spacer fabrics, both of which will be unveiled at an Open House event in China later this month.

As well as being geared towards the footwear sector, these functional spacer textiles have also become an integral part of mattresses and are ideal for use in the ventilation zones in the side borders, as soft covers, or as functional partners in multilayered foam constructions. Clothing manufacturers have also discovered the advantages of warp-knitted spacer textiles. The technical features of 3D fabrics in outdoor clothing provide an extravagant look and even climatic comfort.
