ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016 Knitting

Karl Mayer
(Hall 4.1, Booth A30)
Beside having a booth at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2016, Karl Mayer will also hold an in-house exhibition at Karl Mayer (China) in Wujin. The technology and market leader offers perfect solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles and warp preparation for weaving, and will be one of the top addresses for visitors to the exhibition.

The visitors can look forward to view a wide range of exhibits. In the lace sector, a fundamental new development in the multibar jacquard machine sector will set the standard in terms of the cost-benefit ratio, and the company will demonstrate the potentials for producing a wide range of new and different product designs.

In the tricot sector, Karl Mayer continues the generation change that was initiated at ITMA 2015 in Milan. Demands are high for the first model to feature the upgrade, the HKS 2-SE, with a modern machine design, Karl Mayer’s new Kamcos 2 platform with additional App functions, camera monitoring system and the LEO Low Energy Option for up to 10% less energy consumption, reducing costs and environmental loads. HKS machines with EL provide simple and rapid pattern change for producing short runs and the development of new products. An almost limitless range of long pattern repeats, and consequently pattern designs, can be produced.

With “Open Your Future” as its exhibition concept, emphasis is placed on bringing the future closer to within reach of the present, with help from the right partner and the right technology. The company offers its partnership and technological expertise for the benefit of knitting industries in China, Asia and beyond by anticipating upcoming needs in each of those markets.

At ITMA ASIA+CITME 2016, WholeGarment knitting will be represented by the flagship MACH2XS machine featuring Shima Seiki’s original SlideNeedle on four needle beds and spring-loaded full-time sinker system, introduced to much acclaim at ITMA 2015. MACH2XS will be shown in ultrafine 15L and mid-to-coarse 8L gauges. In addition, the compact SWG061N2 will demonstrate its flexibility for knitting a wide range of fashion items and accessories, as well as technical textile applications.

The SRY183LP computerized shaping machine will be shown with a 72-inch/180cm-wide needle bed for supporting garment-length production and an available maximum of 30 intarsia carriers for full intarsia patterning capability, in ultrafine 16 gauge.

The brand new SVR123SP computerized shaping machine features a single loop presser bed located above the rear needle bed. Making its debut at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2016 in fine 14 gauge, the SVR123SP is capable of a wide range of knitting from fashion to technical textiles. Based on the industry-benchmark SVR-series, its triple knitting system is capable of highly productive knitting of complex structures such as inlay.

Further need for evolution is expected not only in knit production but also in managing the entire knit supply chain. The Shima KnitPLM offers comprehensive management from material sourcing, production planning and monitoring, factory and machine allocation, inventory control and shipping, customized especially for the knitting sector. Demonstrations will be held at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2016 to show how KnitPLM can provide a smooth and efficient workflow through each stage of the knit supply chain.
