Karl Mayer, a leading textile machinery firm from Germany, was exhibiting as an innovative driving force and business partner with a wide range of products at the recently held Techtextil exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany. The company’s stand quickly became a real magnet for the public. Around 140 conversations worthy of being recorded were held.
Most of the visitors came from Europe, particularly from Germany, but many visitors were also welcomed from Turkey, India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, and the US. The level of interest from Korea was also surprisingly high. Many of the Korean technologists also had a stand themselves at Techtextil, with the aim of strengthening their export business with Europe, and they were able the gather information about the latest innovations on Karl Mayer’s stand. A delegation of representatives from well-known federations and companies from the Chinese textile and nonwovens sector also visited Karl Mayer’s exhibition stand, the company said in a media statement.
Many informative conversations also took place, mainly with newcomers to the sector, regarding the company Karl Mayer and the production capabilities of its machines. Many traditional textile producers are still in search of new business areas, and received some useful impulses from Karl Mayer. This textile machinery manufacturer is an expert in areas that include technical textiles, composites and nonwovens. As well as offering production technology, it also comes up with innovative textile product developments.
Examples of the latest trend themes were on show during the fair. A team of experts was on hand to provide more detailed explanations and to answer any questions.
Karl Mayer was also exhibiting its digital brand, KM.ON, together with its various product offerings. Rapid reaction to customer needs and market demands is also becoming increasingly relevant in the technical textiles sector. KM.ON’s digital solutions help its customers to network their production and make it more intelligent. This system generated a great deal of interest on the stand. The themes included networked, more efficient, lean production, new business models, Industry 4.0, and artificial intelligence.
To coincide with Techtextil, Karl Mayer was also showing a model in its new RACOP-NW series at an in-house show at its nearby headquarters in Obertshausen, Germany. This Raschel machine for web bonding, and examples of products, such as a thin textile incorporating electrically conductive yarns, generated many conversations regarding its market potential. The discussions focused on conductive and heatable textiles for the automotive sector, furniture upholstery, smart textiles, and interior design applications. (GK)
