Competence in technical textiles

The innovative market leader

Technical textiles are opening up new end uses; they are replacing conventional materials and are used as reinforcing materials in composites for a wide range of applications, including the mobility, energy, construction and leisure sectors. In the technical textiles sector, KARL MAYER has consolidated its expertise in machines for producing technical textiles, so that it can cater optimally for the current and future needs of its clients.

KARL MAYER can offer you added
value for every application:

With our innovative machine portfolio, we are the go-to partner for the
We are the drivers of technology and innovation in composites and
lightweight construction technology. New materials, such as fibre-reinforced
plastics containing carbon and glass, are a few of the important future technologies
for the automotive and aerospace industries. We are also making an
important contribution to future challenges like saving energy and resources.
There we can benefit from our many years of experience working with our
partners, for example in the wind turbine sector and in the increasingly important
construction industry. We also concentrate on efficient production in conventional applications, such as advertising banners and other coating substrates, as well as geotextiles, such as in road building.


Expansion of our customer support

In a rapidly evolving business world, continuous learning is of the utmost importance for professional success. With the start of 2024, we will offer fixed customer training dates on the latest weft-insertion and composite machines at the Chemnitz site.
