Sustainable production of Terry fabrics. See below how you can save up to 30% of costs with the production of warp knitted terry instead of woven and at the same time contribute in preserving the planet for our children.

KARL MAYER offers a complete range of machines for the production of warp knitted terry fabrics:

  • Warp knitting machines with online brushing
  • Warping machines for filament yarns
  • Warping machines for staple fiber yarns

Warp-knitted terry fabrics – ecological advantages for production

Warp-knitted terry fabrics score points, not only with regard to their variety, but also in relation to their ecological benefits.


This terry warp knitting machine operates at an impressive level of efficiency – at a width of 186" and a speed of 800 rpm, the TM 4-TS EL has a daily production rate of about 1,800 kg of terry fabrics at a weight of 400 g/m2 . This means 250% more production than on an air-jet loom.


 The TM 4-TS EL consumes roughly 87% less energy per kilogram of produced fabric than air-jet looms, which require a large amount of energy to produce the compressed air.


The production of warp-knitted terry fabrics requires no sizing process. This saves on textile chemicals, effluent and energy to the value of roughly 0.20 US dollars/kg. That means a share of roughly 30% of the production costs (without the yarn) when producing the raw fabric.


Due to a firm anchoring of the terry loops into the warp knitted construction the towels and bathrobes are snag-proof.


Snag-proof towels have a longer service life than woven textiles. The ecological advantages include less waste, longer replacement cycles and a lower consumption of resources.
