Groz-Beckert E66 knitting technology
Groz-Beckert sets new records all the time! After solutions were presented in 2007 for the production of fabrics in gauge E66, the company broke its own world record yet again four years later. A new knitting technology with the fastest knitting cylinder in the world an the finest precision parts has since made it possible to produce ultra-fine fabric in gauge E90.
Products and systems for everything related to loop formation are the traditional core business of Groz-Beckert. Today the company offers over 50,000 different products in the knitting sector. These include automatic stocking machine needles with latches that move faster than the wing-beat of a dragonfly-namely, up to 120 times a second-or the award-winning litespeed. There are also innovative components that enable needle selection within a fraction of a second during production. Whether needles or system components, a large number of parts used in loop forming are included in the range available. That also goes for circular and flat knitting machines, Raschel, tricot and flat warp knitting machines as well as galloon crocheting and narrow fabric looms. In the circular knitting sector, Groz-Beckert also functions as a universal systems partner, producing needles, the finest cylinders and dials, and knitting heads for the machine construction industry. Tailor-made packaging and coating solutions also form part of the portfolio.
Groz-Beckert supports users with universal lubrication competence, so as to enable effective use of needle oils in knitting machines. The service here ranges from consulting and problem definition to problem solving. Detailed analysis enable reliable statements to be made on the operational potential of different needle oils.
