KARL MAYER is becoming a partner in ADAMOS and will reap the benefits of joining a strong global alliance

As far as KARL MAYER is concerned, digitization is an important driver of growth, productivity and innovation. This manufacturer is one of the innovative market leaders and driving force for innovations in textile machinery building. KARL MAYER offers solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles and warp preparation.

KARL MAYER has now joined the ADAMOS alliance of industrial and software companies as its seventh partner. ADAMOS is a strategic alliance of machinery and plant engineering firms and stands for ADAptive Manufacturing Open Solutions. This joint venture was set up to tackle Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which are key issues for the future. As part of this, ADAMOS is committed to close cooperation and the exchange of expertise.

According to Arno Gärtner, CEO of the KARL MAYER Group, “Joining the strategic ADAMOS Alliance is the next step in our digitization strategy. ADAMOS brings together experts in mechanical engineering and information technology to help provide high added value for customers. With this involvement we will gain access to an open IIoT environment which is specifically focused on the needs of machinery and plant construction.”

As a pioneer in textile machine building, KARL MAYER pursues a broadly conceived digitization strategy: for one, the aim is to boost productivity within the company’s own added value chain to the customers’ benefit; and secondly, the intention is to develop new market-supporting business models, products and services involving digitization.

Back in November 2017, the company founded KARL MAYER Digital Factory GmbH in order to develop advanced digital competences in an agile environment. And now KARL MAYER Digital Factory GmbH too has taken a stake in ADAMOS GmbH.

This means that the company can access digital skills quickly and develop new digital solutions and services at the speed required.


ADAMOS was founded as a strategic alliance for the future topics of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). ADAMOS stands for ADAptive Manufacturing Open Solutions. ADAMOS is the first alliance of global market leaders in machinery and plant engineering. The ADAMOS alliance aims at combining the know-how from mechanical engineering, production and information technology to produce a high level of added value and establishing standards for digital production.

ADAMOS is specially tailored to the needs of machinery and plant engineering companies and their customers. ADAMOS offers machine builders an open, manufacturer-neutral IIoT environment based on leading technologies. Every ADAMOS partner smooths its customers’ path to digitization and offers them opportunities to use tried and tested solutions for digitally networked production at moderate expense.
