Obertshausen - Warp knitting machine builder Karl Mayer is to hold an in-house exhibition at its US subsidiary in Greensboro, North Carolina at the end of April.
The aim of the event, scheduled for 26 to 28 April, is to present the latest machines and applications for warp knitting, weaving warp preparation and composite fabrics to its industry partners across North and Central America.
"We have developed an exhibition program intended to provide our guests with fresh ideas and valuable support for their future development activities," explained Tony Hooimeijer, President of Karl Mayer North America in Greensboro. “Our customers have enormous experience and knowledge in their markets. If they are able to combine this with our expertise and innovations, it is surely possible to generate completely new product solutions and ideas for increased productivity."
Visitors will have the opportunity to see the latest, high performance warp knitting machines, several of which were on display at ITMA last November. This includes machines notable for their ability to produce new and sophisticated fabrics for automotive applications, and for sportswear, including seamless garments.
For the weaving industry, Karl Mayer will be displaying its latest automatic sectional warper for the flexible production of high-precision warp beams. For sizing the company will be showing its VSB size box, a revolutionary new development that will generate significant savings. The third highlighted key area will be for the composites industry, which includes an innovative carbon fibre-spreading unit.
Visitors may arrange either a half-day visit, a full-day tour or a stay for several days with the program tailored to individual requirements. In addition to a detailed tour of the machine, there will be presentations by Karl Mayer’s Business Units at regular intervals. The Karl Mayer Academy will also hold fabric forming familiarization courses providing more insight in the application possibilities of the presented technologies. The event will also offer plenty of networking opportunities, with industry partners and with Karl Mayer experts.
