Groz Beckert: Needle solutions

The leading worldwide provider of industrial machine needles will be represented in Frankfurt, Germany, with its extensive product portfolio and range of services in the fields of Knitting, Weaving, Felting, Carding and Sewing.

Felting

The Felting area presents an absolute novelty: Thanks to the customizable customer label, customers not only benefit from enhanced know-how protection, but also from more security and safety when handling needles in production. At the booth, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the staple fiber needling line live. The 3D print model in scale 1:18 of the original line, in the Technology and Development Center (TEZ) of Albstadt, Germany, impresses with its wealth of technical detail.

The company will also be focusing on special needle solutions for good surface quality in pre-needling. The Gebecon felting needle offers improved stability compared with a conventional standard felting needle – combined with good needle flexibility. 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. For spunlace customers there will be the innovative HyTec P jet strip which improves handling properties and which also has a significantly higher hardness. This causes a positive effect on all mechanical properties such as scratch resistance, flexural rigidity and service life.

Carding

Regarding carding visitors can directly compare different tooth geometries. The worker and user sets SiroLock and EvoStep, for example, ensure improved fiber control in the fleece. SiroLock also impresses with performance enhancements in carding, while the EvoStep set emphasizes on saving raw material.
