Karl Mayer Academy Webinars

Karl Mayer Academy has gone online to provide customers with the necessary knowhow, even in times of coronavirus-caused travel restrictions.
For the short-term start into the World Wide Web, the company’s own Qualification Center offers webinars lasting one hour for not more than six to eight participants, because it relies on dialogue.
“We don’t want any frontal teaching but interaction. In this way, we can better answer individual questions, and support the development of new ideas,” explains Robert Kuna, who develops Karl Mayer’s e-training concept.
The course instructor hopes to get fresh impetus for webinar topics thanks to the close cooperation of all parties involved. In addition to basic knowledge of warp knitting, divided into small units, the clients should acquire special knowhow that is meant to further support them in their market situation. Especially now, many warp knitting mills have enough time for the qualification of their employees.
The new webinar series was successfully started by Roland Bämpfer by mid-May 2020. Via video, Indian customers received from this course instructor a detailed description of the possibilities of producing fabrics suitable for making every-day face masks. For many companies, the production of urgently needed sanitary articles represents an exception from the nationwide corona shutdown.
Regarding the content of the online events, Bämpfer says, “With the participants, I discuss different lapping techniques and suitable yarns for the commonly used tricot machines in India. In this way, everyone can produce those articles that are most suitable for his business.”
More webinars are being prepared. More information about this issue, registrations and suggestions on topics can be obtained from Karl Mayer Academy by email: academy@karlmayer.com
In addition to the webinars with flexible contents, from next year on, the company will offer online training courses to support previous Academy courses with their permanent elements. The new offerings should contribute to increasing efficiency in knowhow transfer.
