Groz-Beckert, a provider of industrial machine needles, precision parts, and fine tools, will display its latest textile machinery at Texprocess Americas and Techtextil North America trade fairs, in hall B1A, booth 701. The events will be held from May 22 to 24, 2018, in US. Groz-Beckert will show machines from sewing, felting, and carding sectors.
In the field of sewing, Groz-Beckert will be focusing on Smart INH (Ideal Needle Handling). Since 2016, the company has been offering the INH quality management, a patented process for problem-free and timesaving handling of broken and damaged sewing machine needles. With Smart INH, the latest component of the quality management, Groz-Beckert is now enabling the digital documentation of all needle breakages and all other needle changes.
A further service highlight in the field of sewing is the customer portal with integrated online shop. Alongside the option of ordering sewing products online, the platform also offers a wealth of information relating to all aspects of sewing technology and provides an extensive knowledge database. Product details and animations of stitch formation types can also be accessed, invoices or order confirmations viewed, and the status of orders and shipments queried.
Groz-Beckert’s newest product sector, carding, focuses on the aspects of increased performance and raw material savings. The high-performance worker and doffer wires SiroLock and EvoStep will be displayed at the expo. Thanks to an improved fibre control, EvoStep card clothing distribute the fibres more uniformly in the web and effectively help to achieve the nonwoven properties. This reduces the raw material consumption to a minimum. SiroLock also offers options for saving on raw material – mainly through the more uniform web quality. A unique exhibit with 3D models will bring the special card clothing series to life for visitors at the Groz-Beckert booth.
The felting product sector is focused 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 on cost-effectiveness.
Groz-Beckert will present its latest innovation, ‘dur’. A patented manufacturing process in combination with a new base material are the foundation for an increase in service life of up to 30 per cent and improved corrosion resistance. The unique ‘TexBox’ will also offer customer-specific needle solutions directly at the Groz-Beckert booth.
