Techtextil 2019 and In-house Show

14 - 17 May 2019 in Frankfurt am Main

KARL MAYER is inviting the sector to an exchange of ideas at Techtextil, stand 3.0/E 18, 14.-17.5.2019 in Frankfurt and to explore the latest RACOP-NW at the In-house Show in Obertshausen.

At the Techtextil 2019 in Frankfurt am Main, KARL MAYER will be demonstrating warp-knitted textiles in Hall 3.0/E 18, with an exceptional level of performance. KARL MAYER is also a trendsetter in the area of ​​digitisation. The manufacturer has grouped all its digital solutions under the KM.ON brand and also presents them at its Techtextil booth.

In addition, KARL MAYER invites to an In-house Show accompanying the fair at its headquarter in Obertshausen. The event is easily accessible by bus transfer and will be premiering a nonwovens machine RACOP-NW.


We are looking forward to your visit!

Highlights Techtextil and In-house Show:


    Electrically conductive textiles are a hot topic at the moment and can be produced in a variety of different ways. The multibar raschel machines can be used to convert electrically conductive textiles with maximum flexibility in terms of geometry, dimensions and location.

    TEXTILE CIRCUIT, another element of TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, shows the potential of warp knitting here.

  • RAPID TEXTILE – the quick way to new solutions

    The combination of additive production and warp-knitting technology results in functional knitwear using 3D printing. RAPID TEXTILE will be part of the TEXTILE MAKERSPACE, a platform that offers the space to try things out, develop new products and think outside the box.

  • New spacer fabrics with plastic effects

    A new model of a double-bar raschel machine is now enabling completely new designs: warp-knitted textiles with decorative relief surfaces. The designs can be shaped and positioned almost without any restrictions and can also be combined with openwork designs.

  • Weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles for security panels and efficient cut protection

    Burglars frequently use chainsaws and drills during attempted break-ins, but they can be stopped effectively by a new type of patented security panel with weft-inserted warp-knitted textiles in the core. On contact with the cut-resistant textiles, the rotating tools quickly release large amounts of fibres from the material. These become entangled and the tool is stopped. The highly effective security panels are also very light and can be applied very easily to e.g. security doors, armoured vehicles, vaults and cash machines.

  • KM.ON - digital solutions

    KARL MAYER is also a trendsetter in the field of digitisation. This manufacturer has grouped all its digital solutions under the KM.ON brand, and will also be showcasing this system on its stand at the Techtextil.

  • RACOP - Raschel machine for web bonding

    A RACOP-NW, 160", gauge E 14, is producing a textile for the application area heating textiles at the in-house show. The latest model of the RACOP NW series produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs and offers a number of technology-related advantages.



In-house Show

During the same time the Techtextil will take place, we will have an In-house Show in Obershausen. At this show a model of the latest RACOP-NW series will be demonstrated. This efficient nonwovens machine produces stitch-bonded nonwovens from feed webs, a technology that offers many advantages.
