Obertshausen - Karl Mayer and its subsidiary Karl Mayer Malimo Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, are among the innovators in the technical textiles sector and are therefore almost compelled to exhibit at Techtextil. This year the company will show its versatility by exhibiting a range of machine developments for a wide range of technical applications.
Examples of this are machines for the production of biaxial and multiaxial multi-ply structures. These textiles which have enormous strength are made from high-performance fibres such as carbon, glass or aramid and form the basis for fibre-reinforced composites. The web structures, which are bonded by thermosetting or thermoplastic means, are used mainly in lightweight constructions, such as car body parts and aircraft components, rotor blades for wind power plants, materials for sports equipment, moving parts for machines, and also in the building sector, where they are used as reinforcing components for textile-reinforced concrete, amongst other things.
