Karl Mayer Delivers 100th Sample Warping Machine

Germany-based Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH — a manufacturer of warp preparation,
warp-knitting and raschel machines — has sold its 100th sample warping machine, a Giro-O-Matic
(GOM) 24, delivering the machine to Italy-based textile manufacturer Botto Giuseppe & Figli

The GOM 24 —  which Botto Giuseppe purchased to process fine wool, cashmere, mohair,
silk, linen and cotton — features a swivel-frame creel with eight, 16, or  24 package stations
that produce single- and multi-colored warps; a patented build control system; and an automatically
controlled leasing device with up to seven sizing divisions. 

“This new sample warping machine sets new standards in warp preparation for sample and
production warps,” said Carlo DeBernardi, production manager, Botto Giuseppe. “It enables us to
produce top-quality warps in lengths of up to 1,000 meters, a performance which gives us a real
competitive edge on the market.”
