Obertshausen - Karl Mayer held a warp knitting course at Karl Mayer North America in September, the first face-to-face event in the USA since the beginning of the Covid pandemic.

The Karl Mayer Group Academy trains the company’s customers all over the world, and either invites them to its sites in Germany, China and India for this purpose, or travels to see them.

Recently, Academy head Sophia Krinner flew from the company headquarters in Obertshausen to Karl Mayer North America in Greensboro to hold the course, which took place from 19 to 23 September. Topics included explanations regarding the different kinds of warp knitting machines and lappings, production calculations and an overview of the basics of textile analysis. The course participants listened to Sophia Krinner’s lectures with great interest. “Although the participants all had different levels of previous knowledge, and some of them had quite a lot to learn, all of them participated enthusiastically,” said Krinner.

In total, eleven people who work in the areas of production and quality control, as well as the creative departments of textile and clothing manufacturers, attended the course in Greensboro, including self-taught professionals with practical experience, newcomers to the industry and warp knitting experts who were looking to update their skills. All of them benefited from the course and learnt many things that would be useful to them in their jobs. Quite a few gained a better understanding of their company’s products, were afterwards able to finally put things into context, and picked up ideas for improvements or new product solutions.

Sophia Krinner has been extremely busy since her return. The next basic warp knitting course in Obertshausen starts on 14 November.
