Karl Mayer to exhibit multiaxial warp knitting machines at JEC World 2017

Karl Mayer Technische Textilien Technical Textiles, an expert and committed partner to the composites sector, will be demonstrating its latest technology at the next JEC World show, to be held from 14-16 March 2017 in Paris.

The leading textile machinery manufacturer supplies bi- and multiaxial warp knitting machines for producing dry, non-crimp fabrics (NCFs) for the composites sector, as well as fibre spreading machines for the production of unidirectional fibre tapes made from a wide range of technical filament yarns.

For the duration of this leading global composites fair, the manufacturer can be found in hall 5A of the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, where the guests can look forward to having some interesting conversations. They will also be able to network and gather information on what the company has to offer.


Karl Mayer Technische Textilien is offering the COP MAX 4 and COP MAX 5 multiaxial warp knitting machines for the production of high-performance composites.

The COP MAX 4 is a flexible, all-round machine for producing multilayered, multiaxial structures having angles of from maximal +20° to -20°. The COP MAX 5 is the machine of choice for processing carbon fibres in particular. This machine is designed to enable multiaxial textiles having very low weights per unit area to be produced, and the fibre material can either be delivered online or offline. For the offline version, Karl Mayer Technische Textilien can also supply the UD 700 spreading unit for spreading the fibre tapes.

Karl Mayer Technische Textilien, the Chemnitz-based company, which was formed by merging Karl Mayer Malimo with Karl Mayer Liba, constitutes around 15 to 20% of the Group’s turnover, and supplies a number of different sectors.

“The biggest sector using carbon is still the aviation industry, followed closely by the car industry. Growth is particularly good here. But carbon is also being used increasingly in the wind turbine sector,” commented Jochen Schmidt, Managing Director of Karl Mayer Technische Textilien.

The company supports certain sector initiatives like the C³ Project, a project sponsored by the German government for promoting textile-reinforced concrete, and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Hybride Leichtbau Technologie (Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies), set up by the Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, VDMA e.V. (German Engineering Federation).
