In addition to the EcoStar® felting needle and the new Groz-Beckert® dur needle, Groz-Beckert presented the HyTec® P jet strip – its latest product for hydroentanglement.
The nonwovens industry and anyone with an interest in technical textiles come together every two years at CINTE in Shanghai, China. In 2018, the subsidiary of the German textile trade fair took place from 4 to 6 September. Numerous companies presented their product innovations – including Groz-Beckert. The leading worldwide provider of industrial machine needles represented at CINTE with its extensive product portfolio and range of services in the fields of Felting and Carding in Hall N1, Booth D 01.
The Felting product area presented its products and services at the trade fair. As a development partner, Groz-Beckert has expanded its application consulting services with the staple fibre 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 had an 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 also focused 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 highlighted 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 also presented HyTec® P jet strip – its latest product for hydroentanglement. As well as improved handling properties, the innovative jet strips also 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 presented its extensive product range for nonwovens industry at CINTE.
This includes 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 acrylic.
