Multiaxial machine to be showcased JEC show

Malitronic Multiaxial machine

Karl Mayer Malimo the Chemnitz, Germany based producer of multiaxial machines and weft-insertion tricot machines for the production of high-quality reinforcing textiles from glass and carbon will be showing its latest technologies at the JEC Composites show from 29 to 31 March.

The Saxon company’s innovative developments have been setting new standards in the sector for a while and should find a suitable platform at the Paris exhibition where it will show its recently developed Malitronic Multiaxial machine.

According to Karl Mayer, in addition to its efficient high-tech Malitronic machine, visitors can also expect high-value graphic patterns, an extensive range of information and competent advice. A further focus of attention will be the new Wefttronic RS weft insertion raschel machine which has a 600mm greater working width when compared to its predecessor.

Karl Mayer says the speed, accuracy and operating comfort remain the same but a complete reworking of the machine results in products with a width of up to 6800 mm.

Karl Mayer is not only a part of the composites production chain, but also a user of composite materials themselves. The company is increasingly integrating carbon-fibre- reinforced composites in its machines in order to improve the performance and technical level of its products.

A competence centre was set up for this in 2008 at Karl Mayer Malimo’s Chemnitz facility where in-house carbon-fibre-reinforced composites specialists are said to be developing system-integral, easily adaptable solutions on the basis of fibre-reinforced plastics.

According to Karl Mayer, components which are ready to go into production, with integral functionality, complex structures, a profile length of up to 7 metres, specific thermal expansion coefficients and a plug-and-play design open up new opportunities regarding industrial applications. Examples of this and competent, detailed advice can be obtained from the Karl Mayer stand at the JEC Composites Show.
