ShanghaiTex Exhibitor Preview: Karl Mayer Textilmaschinen GmbH

OBERTSHAUSEN, Germany — March 5, 2013 — Traditionally, all the important companies belonging to the
knitting industry are present at ShanghaiTex, and this is also valid for KARL MAYER. The world
market leader for warp knitting machines and warp preparation units will be displaying its products
on stand E01 in Hall W1. On an exhibition area of 744 m² KARL MAYER will be showing its latest
developments in the lace and tricot machinery sections. Among other things, the visitors will have
the opportunity to see the high performance of KARL MAYER’S new 4-bar TM 4 EL tricot machine.

This newcomer completes KARL MAYER’s portfolio of TM models. So far, the successful machine
series included the TM 2, TM 3, TM 4-T and TM 4-T EL. The TM 4 EL is intended for the production of
plain fabrics, being the counterpart of the TM 4-T EL in the 4-bar tricot machine range, which is
designed for manufacturing terry articles and which will also be presented at ShanhaiTex.

The new TM 4 EL reaches rotational speeds of up to 1,400 min-1. It offers a high productivity
along with a simple operation and a first-class product quality. All these features make this
machine especially interesting for all those who want to manufacture garments but also
semitechnical textiles, in particular shoe fabrics.

The standard working width of the new TM 4 EL is 186″. The machine gauges are E 28 and E 32.

In addition to the 4-bar tricot machines, the guests will also have the chance to take a look
at innovations related to the topic of Jacquard fabrics made on double-bar Raschel machines.KARL
MAYER’s business unit Warp Preparation will be showing its new elastic warper DSE 21/21 EC. This
newcomer completes the manufacturer’s offer of direct warping machines, being the
price-performance-improved equivalent of the DSE-HH type. Compared to the top-performance model,
the DSE 21/21 EC produces beams with smaller maximum diameters. And another outstanding feature of
this machine is its performance intended to satisfy the user’s basic requirements.

Along the innovations for Knitting Warp Preparation, the KARL MAYER stand will also be
presenting the efficiency of various yarn tensioners fitted to a demonstration creel, and the
company will also display a SMS size box – all in all, a wide-ranging showcase of new developments
by means of which this renowned textile machinery builder sets the stage to justify its reputation
as innovative trendsetter in warp knitting technology and warp preparation units. Considering the
machines on display, the brand-new textile products and the competent advisers of an experienced
team, KARL MAYER’s exhibition stand at ShanghaiTex 2013 is really worth seeing.
