Towels
are not only useful for drying off, but they can also steal the show from
bathing beauties. You only need to look at the extravagant example on this page
to see how. The terry cloth product produced by KARL MAYER creates vibrant
accents with lively motifs in bright colours no matter whether you are around
the swimming pool, at the beach or even simply next to the washbasin in the
bathroom.

The
textile was produced on a TM 4-TS EL with double-sided fabric to ensure that
the finished product is not only a must-have bathing accessory, but also a real
eye-catcher. One side features a dense layer of cotton loops. It quickly
absorbs moisture from the skin after bathing and nestles gently against the
body. The other side consists of sheared polyester. Its soft texture invites
you to relax, while its smooth finish makes it both easier to print on and
quicker to dry. The imaginative design was created at ZIMMER AUSTRIA using a
digital printing process. The specialist for printing, coating and finishing
systems did a great job. KARL MAYER’s textile developer, Melanie Bergmann,
couldn’t be happier with the results: “The colours are extremely vibrant and
vivid while the contours are sharp. Even the finest lines are clearly defined,”
says the textile engineer.

Warp
knitting technology with a firmly integrated terry loop ensures that the colourful
towels can be enjoyed for a long time to come. The fluffy fibre layer is
extremely resistant to thread pullers. The long service life and ecological
advantages in production distinguish warp knitted terry articles from their
weaving counterparts. The TM 4-TS EL does not require compressed air like
conventional airjet rapier looms and therefore consumes around 87 per cent less
energy per kilogram of fabric produced. The sizing process is also eliminated
in warp knitting. This saves textile chemicals, waste water and energy to the
tune of approx. 0.20 USD/kg. This corresponds to about 30 per cent of the
manufacturing costs – excluding yarn – for the production of the raw material.
Apart from saving costs, the terry warp knitting machine is extremely
efficient. With a width of 186” and a speed of 800 rpm, the TM 4-TS EL produces
around 1,800 kg of terry cloth weighing 400 g/m2 every day in 24-hour
operation. This is around 250 per cent more than on an airjet rapier loom.
