Future-oriented inventions and innovations at the KSL in-house show on the occasion of the company’s 50th anniversary

On the occasion of its 50 th anniversary the KSL Keilmann Sondermaschinenbau GmbH held an in-house exhibition for its trade visitors followed by a celebration for guests and employees from July 7 th to 10 th, 2014.
Sewing technology „made in Lorsch“ is high-tech – and yet it looks back on a long tradition. Keilmann was founded in Lorsch exactly 50 years ago. Today the company’s name is „Keilmann Sondermaschinenbau Lorsch“.
KSL belongs to the technological leaders in its branch of industry. „We are inventors“, says the Managing Director Robert Keilmann, „we are known for innovations in the field of automated sewing technology worldwide “. The enterprise has an export rate of 80%. So it is not surprising that customers and business partners from 20 countries, e.g. from Europe, Turkey, Tunisia, the USA, India and China, visited the in-house show.
Since 2013 KSL has been a member of the ShangGong Europe group to which the sewing technology leaders Dürkopp Adler and Pfaff Industrial belong, too.
With a total of 40 exhibits the innovations of these three manufacturers of sewing and welding technology were presented at the in-house show making this event a technological highlight of the trade fair year 2014.
Live demonstrations of production processes were to be seen on many machines, for example a high-speed manufacturing system for filter pockets, CNC sewing units, welding technology, airbag production, carbon fibre applications, industrial sewing machines and state-of-the-art robot technology. All this reflects the customer portfolio of the three companies: automotive, aerospace, filters, home textiles, fashion and a lot of further branches count on the innovative strength of these three specialists.
A show hall filled with numerous exhibits, a lively symposium and many interested visitors made the in-house exhibition a full success.
The guests were enthusiastic about the exciting impressions gathered during their stay with KSL:  a review of the history of sewing technology, innovations in the processing of technical textiles and a glance at the future of automation.
