Karl Mayer is looking forward to an autumn with plenty of action on the trade fair front. In September 2017, this leading producer of warp knitting and warp preparation machines will exhibit on a joint German stand at three trade shows.


Karl Mayer will start its trade fair “marathon” by participating in Irantex. The 23rd International Exhibition of Textile Machinery, Raw Materials, Home Textiles, Embroidery Machines and Textile Products will take place from 4-7 September 2017 on the site of the Tehran International Permanent Fairground. Karl Mayer will be showing a wide range of samples and information material in the German hall.

Techtextil India

There will also be a German pavilion at Techtextil India, which will take place from 13-15 September in the Bombay Exhibition Centre. Karl Mayer will be one of the many exhibitors on the joint stand, and will use the opportunity to show its range of warp knitting and warp preparation machines for producing technical textiles.

“In India, as well, conventional textile producers are increasingly looking for another string to their bow and for alternative business fields, and they therefore represent an important target group for our versatile technical solutions,” said the Senior Sales Manager, Bastian Fritsch.

The products manufactured on Karl Mayer’s machines are used as blood vessels in the medical sector, as advertising billboards on building façades, as tarpaulins for securing loads on trucks and lorries, and for providing strength and stability when used as geogrids in earthworks. These are just a few of the many applications that are also important in India.

Composites Europe

Karl Mayer will be exhibiting at Composites Europe, which will take place from 19 to 21 September 2017, with its subsidiary, Karl Mayer Technische Textilien GmbH. Karl Mayer Technische Textilien can supply the Cop Max 4 multiaxial warp knitting machine for producing high-performance composites.

This is a flexible, all-round machine for producing multilayered, multiaxial textiles with angles varying from a maximum of +20° to -20°. The Cop Max 5, which is especially suitable for processing carbon fibres, will also be on show. This machine can be used to produce multiaxial textiles in very low weights from carbon fibres. The fibres can be delivered both online or offline. For the offline version, Karl Mayer Technische Textilien can supply the UD 700 fibre spreading unit for spreading the fibre tapes.
