Karl Mayer Presents Itself As Competent Partner At Techtextil

Karl Mayer Group presented itself as a competent partner in technical textiles at Techtextil in the areas of warp knitting, flat knitting, composites, warp preparation, digitisation and care solutions.

Around 380 visitors visited the Karl Mayer stall and a further 76 customers travelled to its headquarters in Obertshausen to see tricot machines and Rascheltronic series at work at an in-house show.

Most of the visitors came from Europe, with Germany at the top of the list of countries of origin, while some travelled from the USA, India, Turkey and the UK.

“Around 32 percent of the guests came to talk to the group of companies for the first time, a pleasingly high proportion of new contacts,” the German company said in a press release.

The number of visitors remained almost constant compared to Techtextil 2022, but the quality of the conversations had increased significantly, according to feedback from the trade fair team.

During meetings with visitors, implementation possibilities of ideas and specific machine projects and application potential of Karl Mayer warp knitting and Stoll knitting machine products were discussed.

Many specific inquiries also came from the composites industry regarding multiaxial warp knitting machines and warp knitting machines with weft insertion.

“We have held a number of discussions, on the basis of which we see realistic opportunities for projects in the coming months,” says Hagen Lotzmann, Sales Manager of the Technical Textiles Business Unit.

Other key topics of discussion were KM.ON’s digital solutions, Care Solutions’ offerings and the possibilities offered by Karl Mayer warp preparation machines for generating new business.

In addition to a showcase of innovations, Techtextil always offers the opportunity to track down trends in the industry.

“You can sense a spirit of optimism. Manufacturers from fashion to automotive are on the lookout for real innovations,” Michael Kieren from the Business Development department at Karl Mayer also said.

“Brands in particular are showing a great willingness to invest in product innovations,” he added.
