Mayer & Cie. China shows first in-house development at Shanghaitex

At the Shanghaitex trade fair Mayer & Cie. China (MCN) exhibited its new machine for manufacturing three-thread fleece. The MFC 3.2 is the first in-house development by the German circular knitting machine manufacturer’s Chinese subsidiary. It produces light to heavy linings and is specially geared to processing polyester yarn. The MFC 3.2 will be available from spring 2020; the material it produces is used in sports- and leisurewear.

At the Shanghaitex trade fair Mayer & Cie. China (MCN) exhibited its new machine for manufacturing three-thread fleece. The MFC 3.2 is the first in-house development by the German circular knitting machine manufacturer’s Chinese subsidiary. It produces light to heavy linings and is specially geared to processing polyester yarn. The MFC 3.2 will be available from spring 2020; the material it produces is used in sports- and leisurewear.

“Three-thread fleece linings are popular all over the world,” says Marcus Mayer, Mayer & Cie.’s technical director, “albeit with important regional differences. In Europe and America customers appreciate heavier, warm cotton fabrics, whereas in Asia light, fluffy fabrics made of mixed synthetic fibres are preferred. That is why the MFC 3.2 is a major addition to our Chinese portfolio.“

MFC 3.2: Tried and trusted basis, market-specific alignment
The new Chinese three-thread fleece machine is based on the established Mayer & Cie. MBF 3.2, the qualities of which deliver the goods in the MFC 3.2. They include the high quality of material on both sides of the fabric and the production of challenging weaves. At the same time, the Chinese Mayer & Cie. team attached importance to catering for local requirements, first and foremost processing polyester yarns. Thanks to cam parts developed in-house the new machine performs these tasks reliably and efficiently. At up to 30 rpm on a 30-inch diameter cylinder the MFC 3.2 produces three-thread fleece for sports- and leisurewear.

The MFC 3.2 is more than a three-thread fleece machine, however. A conversion kit transforms it into the MSC 3.2 II, the most popular machine in Mayer & Cie. China’s portfolio. The conversion works in both directions, which further upgrades the single jersey machine because “in the highly saturated Chinese single jersey market the fact that the MSC 3.2 II can be converted into a threethread fleece machine is an important selling point,” Managing Director Mayer notes.

Der Albstädter Rundstrickmaschinenhersteller Mayer & Cie. (MCT) wird sich auf der diesjährigen Leitmesse der Branche, der Internationalen Textilmaschinen Ausstellung, kurz ITMA, unter dem Motto „Stay a winner. With Mayer & Cie.“ präsentieren. Der Fokus des Messeauftritts in Barcelona wird auf dem Thema Sport liegen. Sportbekleidung, sportliche Freizeitkleidung und Sportschuhe bestehen zunehmend aus rundgestrickten Stoffen. Das Traditionsunternehmen bedient diesen Trend mit den passenden Maschinen. Außerdem setzt Mayer & Cie. auf verbesserte Kundenerlebnisse, die durch konsequente Digitalisierung möglich werden.

Seit Jahren wächst der Bedarf an rundgestrickter Ware weltweit kontinuierlich. Ein wichtiger Wachstumstreiber ist der Sportartikel- und Sportmodebereich, zu dem auch Sportschuhe zählen. Laut Euromonitor ist dieses Marktsegment zwischen 2013 und 2017 jährlich um circa sieben Prozent gewachsen. Bereits 2017 schätzte Euromonitor den gesamten Marktwert auf rund 78 Milliarden US-Dollar. Leichte Synthetikfasern, immer neue Muster und attraktive Funktionalitäten sind die zentralen Anforderungen in diesem Bereich.

Mit seinem Maschinenportfolio, das als das umfangreichste der Branche gilt, kann Mayer & Cie. bereits viele Anforderungen bedienen. Leichte Mesh-Strukturen, wie oft in Laufshirts gewünscht, sind beispielsweise eine Spezialität der Interlockmaschine IG 3.2 QCe. Jacquardmaschinen aus der OVJA-Familie wiederum eignen sich auch für die Herstellung von Schuhoberstoffen. Gegenüber den herkömmlichen Herstellungsverfahren, Flachstricken und Kettenwirken, punktet Rundstrick mit Produktivität und deutlich geringeren Rüstzeiten.

„Weil wir der Meinung sind, dass im Bereich der Sport- und Freizeitbekleidung weiterhin viel Potenzial steckt, sind unsere Maschinenneuentwicklungen vornehmlich in diesem Bereich angesiedelt“, fasst Marcus Mayer die ITMA-Präsentation seines Unternehmens zusammen.

Seit Ende 2018 läuft die Serienproduktion der Spinnstrickmaschine Spinit 3.0 E. Sie kombiniert zwei bisher getrennte Prozesse, das Spinnen und das Stricken, in einer Maschine. Das spart Zeit, Platz und Energie im Vergleich zum herkömmlichen Herstellungsverfahren. Für diesen Ansatz hat Mayer & Cie. bereits mehrere Auszeichnungen gewonnen; die jüngste ist der Innovationspreis für Klima und Umwelt (IKU), den das Bundesumweltministerium (BMUB) und der Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie e.V. (BDI) alle zwei Jahre ausloben. Auf der ITMA präsentiert das Unternehmen seine Weiterentwicklungen an dieser Maschine.

Jenseits der Maschinenentwicklung hat sich Mayer & Cie. ein weiteres Ziel für die ITMA und danach gesetzt: das verbesserte Kundenerlebnis. Aktuell läuft die Digitalisierung des vielfältigen Kunden- und Maschinenwissens. Bereits auf der ITMA werden Kunden erste Ergebnisse sehen und testen können. Zum Ausprobieren bereitstehen werden der neue Webshop, verknüpft mit einem analogen Modell des Hochregallagers in Albstadt-Tailfingen, sowie die Maschinenwartung mittels Hololens.

Mayer & Cie. at ITMA: Focus on sport and new customer experiences

Albstadt-based circular knitting machine manufacturer Mayer & Cie. (MCT) is exhibiting at this year’s leading textile and garment technology trade fair ITMA with the slogan “Stay a winner. With Mayer & Cie.” The focus of the company’s presentation will be on sport. Sportswear, active leisurewear and sports shoes are increasingly made of circular knitted fabrics and the long-established German firm has the right machines to cater for this trend. Mayer & Cie. is also going for the improved customer experiences that consistent digitization makes possible.

Albstadt-based circular knitting machine manufacturer Mayer & Cie. (MCT) is exhibiting at this year’s leading textile and garment technology trade fair ITMA with the slogan “Stay a winner. With Mayer & Cie.” The focus of the company’s presentation will be on sport. Sportswear, active leisurewear and sports shoes are increasingly made of circular knitted fabrics and the long-established German firm has the right machines to cater for this trend. Mayer & Cie. is also going for the improved customer experiences that consistent digitization makes possible.

For years global demand for circular knitted goods has increased continuously. An important growth driver is the sportswear and sports fashion sector, including sports shoes. According to Euromonitor the market segment grew by about seven per cent per year between 2013 and 2017. By 2017 Euromonitor estimated its total market value to be around USD 78 billion. Lightweight synthetic fibres, new patterns and attractive functionalities are the key requirements in this area.

Mayer & Cie. can already fulfil many requirements with a portfolio of machines considered to be the largest in the industry. Lightweight mesh structures, often requested for running shirts, are a speciality of the IG 3.2 QCe interlock machine, for example. Jacquard machines from the OVJA family, in contrast, are suitable for the manufacture of shoe uppers. Compared with the conventional methods flat knitting and warp knitting, circular knitting scores points for productivity and significantly shorter set-up times.

Series production of the Spinit 3.0 E spinning and knitting machine has been under way since the end of 2018. It combines two previously separate processes – spinning and knitting – in one machine. That saves time, space and energy compared with conventional manufacturing processes. Mayer & Cie. has already won several awards for this approach, the latest being the Innovation Prize for the Climate and the Environment (IKU) that the Federal Environment Ministry and the Confederation of German Industry (BDI) award every other year. The company is presenting at ITMA its further developments of this machine.

Along with machine development Mayer & Cie. has set itself another target for ITMA and thereafter: to improve the customer experience, a task of which Sebastian Mayer is in charge. His responsibilities at Mayer & Cie. are for corporate development and digitization. Digitization of the company’s extensive customer and machinery know-how is currently under way. Customers will be able to see and test the initial results at ITMA. Available for testing will be the new Web shop, linked with an analogue model of the high-bay warehouse in Albstadt-Tailfingen, and machine maintenance by means of HoloLens.
