Warp-knitted geotextile

Karl Mayer will participle with its Business Units Warp Knitting, Warp Preparation and Technical Textiles in the seventh Techtextil India at the Bombay Exhibition Centre from November 20th to 22nd, 2019.

The innovative world market leader will be there with a 20-m² stand in the German Pavilion. At this trade fair, there will 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 visitor response.

“Composites are an important area in India. Until now, there has been no specific trade fair for this sector,” says Hagen Lotzmann, Sales Manager for Karl Mayer Technische Textilien GmbH. The Karl Mayer subsidiary 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 textiles produced on them can be used in innovative applications in the future.

“We will be exhibiting at Techtextil India as a supplier of complete solutions,” says Lotzmann.

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

Lotzmann also expects to receive many inquiries 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,” explains the Sales Manager.

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