Karl Mayer will be present at this year’s JEC as an important partner in the CFRP business, both for manufacturers and users.

For the efficient production of reinforcement layer fabrics meeting highest quality standards this well-known family-run company will be showing examples of its wide-ranging products as well as information material and will be represented by a professional adviser team responsible for its Multiaxial and Biaxial warp knitting machines. One of the highlights will be the newly developed Malitronic® Multiaxial, C&L, 100" intended for the cost-effective production of light carbon Multiaxial structures. Karl Mayer’s customers can benefit from the company’s high-performance machines and many years of experience in the cost-effective production of top-quality layer structures, so that the clients can achieve new performance levels especially in the CFRP market.

Fresh impetus in this respect is also given by the Karl Mayer CFRP Competence Centre which is an innovative development and manufacturing department for lightweight construction solutions not only intended for in-house applications but also for external parties. This rather young corporate section can rely on already perfected calculation methods, creative series production and profound know-how especially concerning the application of CFRP components. As a result today’s high-performance warp knitting machines are not imaginable without fibre-reinforced plastic parts. Karl Mayer machines equipped with fibre composites provide customers a competitive edge, due to increased performance and high temperature stability. In the future, other areas of machine building could also benefit of these advantages.

Karl Mayer’s CFRP Competence Centre supports users of all kinds with words and deeds.
The innovator’s developments ready for serial production include very complex profile parts with a length of up to 7 metres with predefined temperature stability produced in lots of more than 10,000 pieces per year. Other examples are highly rigid machine levers made of CFRP and aluminium, leaf springs made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic with an extraordinary long service life as well as lightweight push rods with integrated functions, made of carbon and glass-fibre reinforced plastic.
