KARL MAYER Technische Textilien launches the new MAX GLASS ECO and thus complements its range of composite machines for glass processing.

my TEXTILE NEWS editor Ulrike Schlenker spoke to Hagen Lotzmann, Vice President Sales at KARL MAYER Technische Textilien, about the background to the new development and the benefits for customers.

US: With the COP MAX 4 and MAXTRONIC® you already have two high-performance machines for the production of glass fiber reinforcement fabrics. Why have you developed another model?

HL: The MAX GLASS ECO is a machine with extremely short amortization times for the production of standard glass articles, mainly for the wind power industry. Its focus is on high output and its market positioning lies between the positioning of our previous glass composite offerings. The new machine is less expensive than the COP MAX 4 and more flexible than the MAXTRONIC®, which is now being replaced, thanks to a fixed set of customization options. This should make the MAX GLASS ECO interesting for the production of articles for focused fields of application at low investment costs.

We have the wind power industry in particular in our sights.

US: This clearly differentiates it from the products offered by your company. How does the MAX GLASS ECO stand out from comparable machines from other manufacturers? What advantages does it offer?

HL: The MAX GLASS ECO combines a first-class price-performance ratio with the proven quality of our company. The machines we manufacture are characterized by their long service life. Even after a long period of operation, the output and product quality are just right. Our customers also appreciate our service, good spare parts supply and support in product development and staff training. This all-round support is unique on the market.

US: With the MAX GLASS ECO, you are setting new standards in the composite market for standard applications. What further plans do you have? As we all know, after innovation is before innovation.

HL: There are already concrete ideas for further developments, but I don't want to give too much away at this point. I can only say this much:

We will use the proven machine platform as a basis for expansions and new innovations.

Among other things, this will involve automation. In view of the shortage of skilled workers, we want to simplify handling. The aim is to achieve high, reproducible product quality even with untrained personnel. We will also continue to support manufacturers of articles for niche applications with state-of-the-art machines. The COP MAX 4 is therefore still being continuously adapted to the requirements of our customers.

US: Thank you very much for the interesting interview!
