Groz-Beckert will present innovative products and services as well as its new booth concept with machines made of acrylic glass, giving exceptional insights into the textile world. For the first time, Groz-Beckert´s new product sector carding will be represented.
By means of transparent knitting and warp knitting machines, the product sector knitting will visualise the precision of its products and their perfect interaction in the relevant processes. The individual elements can be removed and eyed in detail. At the exhibition, the visitors will experience how this interaction can contribute to an increase in productivity and profitability. In addition, Groz-Beckert will present its expanded warp knitting range. With the new warp knitting parts, also for the warp knitting process, ideally matching tools are offered for the production of flawless fabrics and for highest productivity. The special highlight will be an innovation in terms of knitting needles used in large diameter circular knitting machines.
Cleaning, drawing-in, knotting, weaving: Groz-Beckert offers a comprehensive system for the weaving sector. At the ITMA 2015 in Milan the product sector Weaving will exhibit a wide range of machines for weaving preparation, among others the fully automatic drawing-in concept ´WarpMaster´ as well as different knotting machines from the KnotMaster series for the most different application areas. The machines will be demonstrated on common tying frames with clamping rod or clamping rail tension system. Weaving accessories will be presented on a transparent model of a weaving machine: Depending on the application, the displayed fabrics vary from tire cord to jacquard fabric, each shown along with the corresponding Groz-Beckert products. The TWINtec weaving heald is available in different ceramic and steel executions, depending on the tape width and application. Moreover, high-performance heald frames, characterised by their high bending strength, will be exhibited.
The product sector Felting will highlight special needle solutions for filtration felts and will also feature a needling machine made of acrylic glass. Thanks to the variety of barb sizes, barb shapes, working part gauges and working part cross sections of the individual needle types from the Groz-Beckert range of products, Groz-Beckert can offer the ideal felting needle for all needled filter media. If a high surface quality is desired, Groz-Beckert recommends a combination of GEBECON® and EcoStar felting needles. The stability of the GEBECON® needle provides a high surface quality in the preneedling process, while in intermediate and finish needling the EcoStar needle gives a high surface quality to the finished product. Where high efficiency is the priority, the Twisted needle with its twisted working part is the right choice.
In a transparent machine model, the product sector tufting will present the advanced gauge part system, consisting of tufting needle, looper, reed finger and tufting knife. With its range of products Groz-Beckert meets the requirements of carpet producers in terms of functional and reliable tufting tools. For all applications and machine types, from monofilament to soft fibre yarns, from artificial turf to high-class carpet Groz-Beckert offers system solutions to satisfy the high quality expectations of its customers.
For the first time present at the Groz-Beckert booth will be its new product sector carding. The sector will exhibit metallic card clothing characterised by minimising fibre consumption and, therefore, guaranteeing an economic production of nonwovens. SiroLock® and EvoStep® wire designs for doffer and worker wires are displayed on a nonwovens card made of acrylic glass. SiroLock® and EvoStep® are characterised by a distinctive step under the tip of the tooth front. These geometries allow a better fibre taking and holding, while reducing flying fibre and improving the fibre blending.<
