At Texprocess Americas and Techtextil North America, Groz-Beckert will present its extensive product and service portfolio in the sectors of sewing, felting and carding in Hall B1A, Booth 701.
In the field of Sewing, Groz-Beckert will focus on Smart INH. Since 2016, the company has been offering the INH Quality Management (Ideal Needle Handling), a patented process for problem-free and timesaving handling of broken and damaged sewing machine needles. With Smart INH, the latest component of Quality Management, Groz-Beckert is now enabling the digital documentation of all needle breakages and other needle changes.
Groz-Beckert’s newest product sector, Carding, will focus on the aspects of increased performance and raw material savings. The high-performance worker and doffer wires SiroLock and EvoStep will be on exhibit. Thanks to an improved fiber control, EvoStep card clothings distribute the fibers more uniformly in the web and effectively help to achieve the nonwoven properties. This reduces the raw material consumption to a minimum. The improved fiber control also enables lower-cost raw materials to be used, which could not be processed with conventional card clothings. SiroLock offers options for saving on raw material – mainly through the more uniform web quality. The main advantage, is increased performance made possible through higher delivery speeds and web weights. The fiber-friendly surface of the card clothing opens up a wide range of application options with all fibers and fiber blends for different web weights.
The felting product sector will focus on special needle solutions for different applications in the nonwovens industry. Because the individual needle types from the Groz-Beckert product range vary with regard to barb size and shape, as well as working part gauge and cross-section, the suitable felting needle can be offered for different applications. For nonwovens manufacturers, the tiniest advantages can often be crucial. Choosing the right needle has a major influence on the needling process and thereby on product outcome and cost-effectiveness. The service life and inclination to tarnish of felting and structuring needles are important issues. Now, Groz-Beckert is presenting its latest innovation: “dur”. A patented manufacturing process in combination with a new base material is the foundation for an increase in service life of up to 30% and improved corrosion resistance. The unique “TexBox” also offers customer-specific needle solutions directly at the Groz-Beckert booth.
