Machine Premiere At Techtextil

KARL MAYER launches new raschel machine for nonwoven bonding at an in-house show in Obertshausen to be held during the Techtextil in Frankfurt/Main, 14. – 17. 05. 2019

KARL MAYER invites the sector to visit its Stand 3.0/E 18 at the next Techtextil in Frankfurt/Main for an exchange of expertise. On an exhibition area of 80 m² this manufacturer will be showing warp-knitted goods with a performance that is opening up new ways for interesting and novel business fields: articles with integrated electrical conductivity and shaping from the company’s new TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, a highly efficient textile solution for the protection of buildings, and a completely new generation of warp-knitted spacer fabrics.

Besides, at KARL MAYER’s headquarters in nearby Obertshausen, the visitors to Techtextil will have the opportunity to attend an exhibition-accompanying in-house show with a machine premiere. The new raschel machine for nonwoven bonding, RACOP 2-NW, will be presented. This efficient nonwoven machine processes fibrous webs to stitch-bonded nonwovens, and scores points by technological advantages. Unlike their chemically bonded counterparts, these nonwovens are elastic, voluminous and, thus, virtually textile. Moreover, the stitch-bonding process requires considerably less energy than thermal methods. In addition, the RACOP 2-NW impresses by an excellent price-performance ratio and highest flexibility. During KARL MAYER’s in-house show, a RACOP 2-NW will produce a fabric in a gauge of E 14 intended for the application field of heating textiles.The heating effect can be tested on a demonstrator module.

The preparations for the in-house show are in full swing. KARL MAYER expects numerous visitors belonging to a specific trade audience. Entire delegations from abroad have already registered. The event can be reached conveniently from Frankfurt/Main by bus transfer.
