Groz-Beckert will be presenting the Felting and Carding product areas at IDEA Miami, one of the key trade fairs for nonwovens and technical textiles in the international nonwovens industry, which takes place from 26-28 March 2019.

Over 550 exhibitors, visitors and companies from 70 countries are expected to gather together at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The experts from Groz-Beckert at the show will be presenting the latest products and solutions for nonwovens production.

The Felting product division presents the innovative HyTec P jet strip for the spunlace industry. With it, all mechanical properties improve such as scratch resistance, bending stiffness and service life thanks to its significantly higher hardness. The acrylic exhibit shows three different versions of the new HyTec P jet strip.

Groz-Beckert will also focus on special needle solutions: the EcoStar and Gebecon felting needle. The special working part cross-section of the EcoStar felting needle is said to meet the highest demands for product surface quality in all applications. Compared with a standard felting needle, the EcoStar felting needle achieves an energy saving of up to seven percent in the needling process, the company explains.

With the Gebecon felting needle, users also benefit from an improved surface quality of the end product. The patented working part design provides optimal bending resistance and results in improved needling parameters. Enlarged scale models represent the special geometries and shapes of the Gebecon and EcoStar felting needles down to the last detail.

A special highlight for visitors to the Groz-Beckert booth will be the live demonstration on a lab-scale needling machine. This will highlight the advantages of a Gebecon felting needle compared with a standard conical felting needle via a penetration force measuring device.
