Karl Mayer travels with an extensive exhibition program to India ITME, 03. – 08.12.2016 in Mumbai. The renowned producer will be showing innovations from warp knitting, warp preparation and technical textiles in Hall 6, Stand B 3, on an area of 504 m². For the Warp Knitting Business Unit Karl Mayer will be showing its successful duo belonging to the tricot segment: the HKS 3-M as another representative of the fourth generation of high-performance tricot machines, and the HKS 4-M EL, the high-speed allrounder that sets new standards in terms of patterning possibilities and productivity. Both models will be shown in a working width of 218″ and a gauge of E 28. Besides, LEO® – a clever technology for energy saving and, thus, for cost saving – is supplied as standard feature on all these machine types. At India Itme the HKS 4-M EL will make use of its design advantages offered by the EL function; it will be producing a lightweight, very delicate fabric in lace look for the clothing sector. The semi-transparent article has only a weight of 31 g/m². It consists of a very delicate, filigree, embroidery-like fabric ground made from monofilament yarn, and a relief-like patterning made from a textured PES yarn. In Mumbai the HKS 3-M machine will be producing a rigid sportswear textile with a filigree, grainy surface in woven look. The max. targeted speed is 2,800 min-1. Despite its impressive speed, the HKS 3-M is highly efficient due to the specific function integration on the basis of KAMCOS® 2, and with its new ergonomic machine design it also has a stylish look. Karl Mayer will be presenting its new lace machine concept Lace.Express for the first time in India. Lace.Express sets new standards in terms of price-performance ratio when manufacturing garment lace.
