KARL MAYER’s “COP MAX 5 Aramid” Project

December 09 2019

KARL MAYER Technische Textilien GmbH set up a far-reaching development project, entitled “COP MAX 5 Aramid”, for processing high-performance fibers on multiaxial warp knitting machines. The aim of the project was to produce flat reinforcing textiles for composites having a low weight and a uniform fiber distribution. The surfaces of the finished textiles should have a dense structure, without any so-called laying channels. The fiber materials can be used to the maximum due to their exceptional uniformity – which justifies the cost of the aramid yarns. The TC 66 online spreading unit and the COP MAX 5 Aramid multiaxial warp knitting machine were used to produce the new, lightweight textiles. The spreading unit ensures that the aramid yarns are spread to produce thin tapes, which are fed to the COP MAX 5 Aramid at a constant tension. The multiaxial warp knitting machine bonds the delivered material stitch by stitch to produce high quality, non-crimp textiles with a huge potential in the lightweight construction sector. The process runs discontinuously between the machines. The aramid material has to be cut following spreading and before laying.
