Groz-Beckert, a leading supplier of industrial machine needles, will exhibit its comprehensive product and service portfolio in the knitting, weaving, felting, carding and sewing product areas at the upcoming Techtextil and Texprocess trade fairs, which take place from 14-17 May in Frankfurt, with a special focus on the trend theme Urban Living – City of the Future.

In the area of knitting, Groz-Beckert is exhibiting its portfolio for the product areas of circular knit, legwear, knitwear and flat knitwear. The focus is on system solutions – precisely coordinated system components enable smooth interaction and thus are designed to ensure uniform appearance of the goods and increased process reliability.

Another key topic is the expansion of the product portfolio, for example, by offering needles in new intricacies – including coated needles. Additional needle types in the patented litespeed plus version and new system components, which have been developed in close cooperation with machine manufacturers meet their high-quality standards and complete the product portfolio. In addition, Groz-Beckert enables its customers to enter new business fields with individual developments for specific applications.

Weaving and felting

At Techtextil, Groz-Beckert’s weaving product area will present its range of products for weaving preparation and weaving accessories. In addition, the trade fair stand will be offering both special healds and new insights into monofilament.

The felting area presents an absolute novelty with Groz-Beckert customised product: Thanks to the customisable customer label, Groz-Beckert customers not only benefit from enhanced know-how protection, but also from more security and safety when handling needles in production, the company explains.

Another highlight of the stand is the 3D print model of the staple fibre needling line (SVL). The SVL has been available to Groz-Beckert customers and partners for the last two years at the company's Albstadt headquarters, in the Technology and Development Center (TEZ), in Germany.

Nonwovens and carding

Within the traditional nonwovens industry, Groz-Beckert's Gebecon felting needle is said to offer the best possible fracture/bending properties and thus optimised needling parameters, as well as an improved surface quality of the final product. Groz-Beckert will be presenting details of the patented shape of working part of this needle at the trade fair stand using a man-sized needle exhibit.

The carding area completes Groz-Beckert's product range for the nonwovens industry. At Techtextil visitors can directly compare different tooth geometries. The worker and user sets SiroLock and EvoStep, for example, are designed to ensure improved fibre control in the fleece. SiroLock also impresses with performance enhancements in carding, while the EvoStep set emphasises on saving raw material.

Sewing

The sewing product area will present various special application needles on this year's Texprocess trade fair programme. Their use is said to increase the process reliability and productivity when sewing textiles that make special demands on a trouble-free sewing process. In addition to the special application needles SAN 5.2 and SAN 6 that are both specifically designed for the processing of technical textiles, medium and heavy weaving, the company introduces the redesigned SAN 10 XS special application needle.

In addition, the sewing area will be on-site with INH (Ideal Needle Handling) quality management. The patented process helps customers handle sewing machine needles throughout the sewing process and also provides a digital solution for documenting needle breaks.
