Students from Albstadt Sigmaringen University visiting the circular knitting department at Mayer & Cie.

For pupils and students, excursions are an integral – and valuable – part of their education. For the companies visited, such events offer an opportunity to present their business in a tangible way and to give personal insights. In the Corona period, these highlights had to be virtual, if at all. With their visit to Mayer & Cie. on November 15th, the Albstadt Sigmaringen University of Applied Sciences revived a tradition that was valued by both parties.

Around 15 students on the Textile and Clothing Technology bachelor’s course were given a tour of Mayer & Cie. by Head of Sales Wolfgang Müller and Jürgen Müller, Head of Pattern Services. The group also discussed the diverse applications of circular knitwear and was able to talk shop with Jürgen Müller about the operation of a circular knitting machine. 

The students were already very familiar with the topic: They all chose the lecture “knitting pattern design/circular knitting”, which is offered as an elective in the 6th semester. Contents of this lecture are circular knitting technology, structure and components of circular knitting machines as well as sample options according to the machine-technical requirements or circumstances. In a practical exercise, the students then develop individual circular knitting patterns that are knitted at the university. The machine they work with is also from Mayer & Cie., it is a Relanit S

Professor Marina Baum, who accompanied the excursion together with Prof. Dr. Ing. Jutta Buttgereit and Helene Leibinger, employee for knitting technology, is happy about these different ties between the circular knitting machine manufacturer and the university. “The proximity offers many opportunities for exchange and cooperation that enrich both sides.” This includes, for example, development projects that the students work on, as well as setting topics for theses.
