Tufting industry

Tufted carpets with silky smooth surfaces are placing new and higher demands on the cutting behaviour of tufting tools, the company reports.

With conventional tufting tools there is a danger that the loop is pushed from the cutting area by the blade, and that cutting does not take place in one operation. The result would be an uneven carpet surface.

The company’s innovations are said to provide the reliable functioning of loop pile loopers and cut pile loopers. The geometries of Groz-Beckert loopers are optimally adapted to the relevant applications. The consistent and precise quality of single loopers and looper modules is said to guarantee an uninterrupted and efficient production.


Groz-Beckert is the leading provider of industrial needles, precision components and fine tools, as well as systems and services for the production and joining of textile surfaces. The products and services support the fields of knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding and sewing.
