Groz-Beckert presentation at ITM 2018From April 14 to 17, 2018 Groz-Beckert will be represented at the International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITM) in Istanbul, Turkey. The world’s leading provider of industrial machine needles will be showcasing the products and services of its product sectors Knitting, Weaving, Nonwovens and Carding at booth 707/B in hall 7.
The product area Knitting will put the emphasis on the interaction of needles and system parts. Transparent knitting and warp knitting machines will give the visitor unique insights into the interplay of all components. The "CircularKnit" exhibit showcases the productivity and variety of the product range by presenting the interplay between cylinder, needles and system parts for different technologies. The exhibit for the flat knitting segment will visualize 8 different flat knitting technologies from gauge E 2.5 to E18 showing the range of uses of Groz-Beckert products, including for processing challenging materials. In the product sector Weaving, the company will among others present the quick and universal warp tying machine KnotMaster AS/3 at the ITM.
In the product field Felting, the jet strip model HyTec P will occupy center stage. Its improved handling through optimized elasticity leads to a higher service life of the jet strip. Furthermore, the higher scratch resistance of HyTec P prevents it from damages when being inserted into the machine.
The product area Carding will highlight SiroLock as well as EvoStep doffer and worker wires at the ITM. Together they guarantee a homogeneous fiber distribution and minimized fiber consumption in the nonwovens process. SiroLock and EvoStep wires feature a pronounced step undercut on the tooth front and a distinctive tooth shape. The optimized geometries of these wires allow an up to 30 % higher fiber take-up and retention. This significantly improves the fiber control and prevents fiber fly in spite of high production speeds. SiroLock and EvoStep, therefore, guarantee a clearly improved fiber blending and thus higher quality of the web than with conventional card clothing – and at the same time reduce fiber consumption. For the spinning industry, the product area Carding will also showcase a special doffer wire for synthetic fibers with a rib of 0.70 mm and 520 PPSI for the processing of microfibers. In addition to that, Carding will exhibit revolving tops and stationary flats.
