Karl Mayer Textile Machinery India has opened a new demo centre at its site in Ahmedabad, in order to be even closer to the market and to customers.

It will showcase the Isowarp sectional warping machine which is being built in Ahmedabad to facilitate short delivery times and optimum spare parts supply to customers in India. The first Isowarp model with a working width of 3.6 metres was delivered in October 2021.

The Isowarp processes spun yarns and filament yarns and is particularly suitable for standard applications in apparel fabrics and home textiles. It is able to produce warp beams of exceptionally high quality and enables significant increases in quality and productivity in the weaving mill. Interested parties can now see this for themselves at the new demo centre.

“Our customers can come to us and see exactly how the Isowarp works,” said Kevin Socha, director at Karl Mayer Textile Machinery India. “We will show them the most important features of the machine in practical use and will be available for questions and discussions. The Isowarp will also be available for processing tests to help customers with pattern development and to decide which products should go into bulk production.”

The company also offers training for technical personnel and customers who opt for the high-performance sectional warping machine can benefit from the R&D know-how of the Karl Mayer Group and the support of its worldwide service organisation.

During 2021, Karl Mayer has reorganised its support capacities in India, and service and spare parts support for customers in the warp knitting and technical textiles sectors have meanwhile been transferred from Ahmedabad to the Stoll site in Noida. The merger of the group’s warp knitting and flat knitting activities has resulted in a wide range of synergies.

“Our teams of resident engineers provide our clients with technical support such as installations, condition checks, troubleshooting and the overhaul of machines,” said service operations manager Anurag Sidh. “Annual maintenance is also taken care of by contract and in Noida we support the service specialists on site with know-how and administration.”

Stoll’s business is concentrated in the industrial regions of Noida, Ludhiana, Mumbai and Tirupur and customers in the warp knitting sector are mainly located in Surat, with around 90% of the tricot machines sold in the new machine business going to this city of 4.5 million inhabitants in the southeast of the Indian state of Gujarat.

In addition to Surat, there are several investment cluster regions, such as the cities of Silvassa and Karur. Customers are very satisfied with the new service set-up.

“Already 35 customers in the warp knitting and technical textiles sectors have signed our annual maintenance contracts,” said Sidh.
