Obertshausen - Warp knitting machine builder Karl Mayer will return to next month's Heimtextil exhibition for the first time in nearly 40 years, equipped with new machines for the terry fabric and curtain sectors.
The company will be present in Frankfurt with an information booth in the Trend Forum, on Stand K 65 in Hall 3.0, while simultaneously hosting an in-house show at its headquarters in nearby Obertshausen.
Karl Mayer says it will pool its new activities in the field of weft warp knits for Heimtextil under the Weft.Fashion brand with a new curtain fabric produced during the In-house Show. "The trendy pattern is captivating due to an extravagant design in the currently fashionable woven-like look," Karl Mayer said. "Sophisticated fancy yarns give the warp-knitted weft curtain a completely new face."
For the production of these fabrics, Karl Mayer has developed a new weft-insertion warp knitting machine which, as with the company's other technology, offers an attractive price-performance ratio. These are new home textiles manufactured with the benefits of warp knitting efficiency," the company said.
There will also be a machine premiere for the terry segment with Karl Mayer showing its TM 4 TS-EL in a working width of 193 ins and in a gauge of E28. "This efficient machine will reveal its high performance in Obertshausen by producing a revolutionary textile novelty: a double-face warp-knitted terry fabric with a soft velour layer made from microfibers on the outer face, and an absorbent surface made from cotton on the inner side.
"This article for bathrobes is not only functional and stylish, it also shows advantages in terms of environmental protection compared to woven counterparts, and this is due to the machine technology used for its manufacture.
"Karl Mayer’s solutions for a sustainable production of terry articles can be found under Terry.Eco, and the company’s entire commitment to a clean production stands under the heading Cleaner.Productions."
