Obertshausen - Karl Mayer has hailed the success of its Academy's webinar series, which has been created to enhance customer interaction and training during the coronavirus pandemic.

Launched earlier this month, the company’s Qualification Center has been offering webinars lasting an hour and intended for not more than six to eight participants, stressing the need for dialogue and interaction. "We don’t want any frontal teaching but interaction. In this way, we can better answer individual questions and support the development of new ideas," explained Robert Kuna who develops Karl Mayer’s e-training concept, adding that the he hopes to get fresh impetus for further webinar topics with the close cooperation of all parties involved.

In addition to basic knowledge of warp knitting, divided into small units, the clients can acquire special knowledge that is meant to further support them in the current market situation.

The new webinar series was successfully started by course instructor Roland Bämpfer with Indian customers offered a detailed description of the possibilities of producing fabrics which are suitable for making everyday face masks. 

Looking at the content of the online events, Bämpfer said: "With the participants, I discuss different lapping techniques and suitable yarns for the commonly used tricot machines in India. In this way, everyone can produce those articles that are most suitable for his business."

Further webinars are being prepared. More information about this issue, registrations and suggestions on topics can be obtained from the Karl Mayer Academy via its e-mail address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
