Groz-Beckert at CINTE 2018 in Shanghai

           Groz-Beckert will present its extensive product portfolio and range of services in the fields of felting and carding at CINTE in Shanghai from September 4th to 6th in Hall N1, Booth D 01.

As a development partner, Groz-Beckert has expanded its application consulting services with the staple fiber needle punch line. The line is available in various versions to customers and partners for tests and joint projects in both needle and textile development. At the Groz-Beckert booth, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the technology line live. The 3D print model in scale 1:18 of the original line in the Textile and Development Center (TEZ) at the Groz-Beckert headquarters in Albstadt, Germany, impresses with its wealth of technical detail.

Groz-Beckert will also focus 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 highlighting this and other advantages in a live demonstration on a miniature needling machine and a man-high needle model.

In addition to the EcoStar felting needle and the new Groz-Beckert dur needle, the company will present the HyTec P jet strip, its latest product for hydro-entanglement. Together with improved handling properties, the innovative jet strips feature significantly higher hardness, which has a positive effect on all mechanical properties such as scratch resistance, bending strength and service life.

The Carding division will present its extensive product range for the nonwovens industry, including optimal specifications for a wide range of applications. A selection of card clothing will be available to view at the Groz-Beckert booth on a roller top card model made from acrylics.

The focus here will be on increasing performance and saving raw materials. Thanks to the improved fiber control, the EvoStep high-performance worker and doffer wire distributes the fibers more uniformly in the web and helps to achieve the nonwoven properties more efficiently, which means that the use of raw materials can be reduced to a minimum.

The SiroLock high-performance worker and doffer wire offers opportunities to save on raw material, mainly through the more uniform web quality. It also boasts increased performance thanks to higher achievable delivery speeds and web weights. Alongside the increased performance without fiber fly, SiroLock features improved blending of the fibers.
