Karl Mayer will participate with its Business Units Warp Knitting, Warp Preparation and Technical Textiles in the seventh Techtextil India trade fair, which takes place at the Bombay Exhibition Centre from 20-22 November 2019.

The company will be presenting at the show with a 20 m² stand in the German Pavilion. At this year's trade fair, there will now also be an area for composite materials with the World of Composites. Karl Mayer Technical Textiles hopes that this expansion will have a positive effect on the visitor response. “Composites are an important area in India. Until now, there has been no specific trade fair for this sector,” said Hagen Lotzmann, the Sales Manager for the Karl Mayer Technische Textilien.

The subsidiary of Karl Mayer produces innovative warp knitting machines with magazine weft insertion, as well as high-performance bi- and multiaxial warp knitting machines, and will be demonstrating at Techtextil India how the textiles produced on them can be used in innovative applications in the future. “We will be exhibiting at Techtextil in India as a supplier of complete solutions,” explained Mr Lotzmann.

There is a particularly high demand for warp-knitted geotextiles in India, according to the manufacturer. These stable textiles are being used, for example, for reinforcing slopes in road building projects, for stabilising waterway banks in coastal engineering projects, and for covering landfill sites. Other lucrative applications include printed advertising media and lorry tarpaulins.

Mr Lotzmann is expecting to receive many enquiries from the wind turbine sector. “Multiaxial textiles produced from glass on multiaxial warp knitting machines are mainly being used to produce the rotor blades. A number of promising projects are already running on this particular application in India,” he said.

Further topics at the Karl Mayer stand are high-performance warp preparation equipment for processing technical yarns and Terry.Eco, with Karl Mayer’s offers for a sustainable and efficient production of terry fabrics.
