Karl Mayer Announces New Developments

Germany-based Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH has entered into a cooperation agreement with Jürgens Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, a Germany-based manufacturer of machinery including looms used to produce papermaking fabrics for the paper industry. As part of the partnership, Karl Mayer has developed a customized configuration of its PMC Beamer to produce the canister beams required for papermaking fabric production and enhance the functionality of Jürgens’ machinery. Jürgens, now the exclusive distributor worldwide of the PMC Beamer, has ordered a beamer to be installed in its new technical center this spring — giving customers the opportunity to observe the machinery in action, and enabling training of personnel and trials for new developments.

In other news, Karl Mayer Malimo Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, the company’s technical textiles business unit, has upgraded its Multiaxial high-tech knitting machine, which offers several weft insertion systems and produces multiaxial textiles made from fibers such as carbon or glass for reinforcement applications. The company reports the newest upgrades improve the machine’s efficiency and quality; and include the addition in the insertion mechanism of compensators for continuous yarn take-off, weft-yarn tension optimization, simplified software solutions and electronic systems, and incorporation of a new suction system.
