Abstract: There are not too many machine builders in the warp knitting industry and she does not see many exhibitors showing warp knitting machines even at major exhibitions such as ITMA. ITMA 2003 was no exception. Only 6 booths in Hall 5 displayed warp knitting type machines, including crochet machines. The players in this business are few but outstanding. It is fair to say that Karl Mayer and Liba, both of Germany, are the two leaders and major suppliers in warp knitting, and their machines are never disappointing. At ITMA 2003 Karl Mayer no doubt drew most of the attention by the introduction of their new lace machines and new string bar for patterning. Enhancement of a conventional machine also resulted in the still more productive HKS 2-3 (E). The other major player, Liba, had a smaller scale exhibition this time with fewer machines than on previous occasions. The fine machine Liba displayed, the Copcentra 2KE, was just as impressive, with a speed of 3,500 rpm.
