KARL MAYER has prepared well for its trip to the ITM exhibition in Istanbul and expectations are running high. For the duration of this International Textile Machinery exhibition, which runs from 14 to 17 April 2018, this well-known manufacturer can be found in hall 7, stand 709 in the Tüyap Fair Convention and Congress Center in Istanbul.

The focus of the stand is innovative machine systems and technical solutions, which are opening up new opportunities on the Turkish market. “We are showing an HKS 3-M producing a newly developed voile-like net curtain pattern. As far as warp-knitted net curtains and embroidery grounds are concerned, we are expecting some interesting conversations with companies new to this sector concerning new expansion plans and projects,” says Bastian Fritsch, a Senior Sales Manager at KARL MAYER. He is also expecting many enquiries concerning the production of home textiles in general, as well as outerwear fabrics on high-speed tricot, jacquard and multibar raschel machines.

These include lightweight fabrics with a variety of different grounds and superimposed designs produced on an HKS 4-M EL, as well as stylish lace designs created on a LACE.EXPRESS. Bastian Fritsch is certain that terry fabrics as well, especially those produced on the TM 4 TS, will also be a hot topic at the ITM trade fair.

“Warp-knitted terry fabrics have more firmly anchored loops and can be produced more efficiently than similar woven goods. And they can be patterned with a wide variety of different designs.” This sales expert is showing examples made from polyester as well as cotton at the fair. The presentation of warp knitting technology is complemented by some innovative products produced by double-bar raschel technology: trendy shoe fabrics, stylish spacer fabrics for rucksacks, and plush fabrics. Anyone with any questions on these products or any other applications will be able to discuss them with KARL MAYER’s experts in textile development.

As far as warp preparation is concerned, KARL MAYER is exhibiting as an expert partner in the denim sector. The company is showing a LONG CHAIN BEAMER, a BALL WARPER, and models of the PRODYE indigo dyeing machine and the DOUBLE VARIO dyeing unit for use in the production of jeans. Dieter Gager, the Sales Director of KARL MAYER’s Warp Preparation Business Unit says that the PRODYE range of products is already well established on the Turkish market, and this position is being strengthened by the company’s participation in the fair.
