Ecological solutions from the machine to the textile


KARL MAYER keeps the focus on the topic of sustainability. In the course of the generation change of the high-performance warp-knitting machines, almost all models have been equipped with LEO®. The Low Energy Option enables an average energy saving of 10% compared to conventional counterparts, thus, helping to reduce the consumption of resources.

Moreover, it is possible to process resource-saving yarns on KARL MAYER machines. In Barcelona, a HKS 3-M-ON will work a textile completely from a recycled filament yarn on the basis of bottleflakes, produced by Trevira. The article carries the new SINFINECO label, which is granted by the fibre manufacturer for textiles made from his sustainable products.

A selection of sustainable warp-knits and application concepts is offered by KARL MAYER’s „Future of Textiles“ section under CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS. These include warp-knitted articles as ecologically beneficial alternative to woven fabrics for modern streetwear and TERRY.ECO terry textiles. TERRY.ECO represents an efficient technological solution for more sustainability, for energy- and resource-saving systems during terry fabric production.

The topic of SUSTAINABLE DENIM is especially addressed to the manufacturers belonging to the denim sector.
