Annual production of 1,000 drying cylindersThe Textile Drying Profit Center of the KARL MAYER Group ended the year 2021 with a milestone Learn more
In 2016, KAR MAYER ROTAL entered into the construction of the steam-heated drying cylinders for its denim and sizing lines as well as the third party business. Shortly thereafter, annual production skyrocketed. In 2018, almost 800 drying cylinders came from Mezzolombardo, and on December 16, 2021, the 1,000 mark was cracked. "1,000 cylinders per year has been a magical goal and constant drive for us since 2018 at the latest, even in times of strict lockdowns," says Karl-Heinz Vaassen. The head of the Textile Drying Profit Center at KARL MAYER ROTAL and his team have continuously developed their know-how and invested in targeted automation upgrades in order to achieve the output leap. These measures have eliminated bottlenecks in the production chain and accelerated time-consuming production steps.
