Composite technology adds up to savings for warp knitters
Wednesday, 24 June 2015

Obertshausen – Warp knititng builder Karl Mayer outlines how the use of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) in warp knitting machines helps reduces energy consumption.

Energy has different functions in the operation of a warp knitting machine: mainly the drive of the knitting elements but also the cooling of the components which must meet the specific requirements within a certain temperature range due to their material-conditioned features. Nowadays the consumption of energy is an important ecological aspect as well as an expense factor.
