During the show that takes place from 10-12 March in Paris, Karl Mayer Malimo and Karl Mayer Liba will be showing their extensive expertise and many years of know-how gained in the composites sector, as well as machines for producing reinforcing textiles, with the emphasis on carbon applications.

Processing machinery

The focus will also be on machines for processing glass, aramid and hybrid materials, such as carbon mixed with thermoplastics, based on yarns and rovings.

The machines produced by both of Karl Mayer’s subsidiaries are extremely versatile, the company reports. Based on a modular design, they can be customised to suit the requirements of the customer.

In addition to being able to process layers at different angles, the lapping can be changed locally and the stitch length or yarns layers can be altered to match the likely direction of force.

Joint presentation

Karl Mayer’s stand is also focusing on spreading technology, which can be used to homogenise every type of carbon used on the market ready for further processing.

The machines can also be used to homogenise various types of glass and aramid and to produce yarn bands having specific weights per unit area. Until now, Karl Mayer Liba and Karl Mayer Malimo used to exhibit at the JEC on the joint Saxony stand or on Bayern Innovativ’s stand.

The joint presentation of these unique machines by Kark Mayer Liba and Karl Mayer Malimo will enable visitors attending the composites fair in Paris to profit from the company’s broad and extensive knowledge in the field of producing carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics, and from ideas to product development, the company believes.
