Groz-Beckert displays textiles used in 'TexCar' at ITMA
16
Jun '14
In the center of Groz-Beckert’s show presence stands the “TexCar” – a Mercedes-Benz E-Class model that was rebuilt so that nearly all of the textiles used in its manufacture were laid open. This exhibit allows a free view of woven and knitted fabric, nonwovens and seams, and demonstrates the diversity of textile applications. 
 
The use of textiles goes far beyond the “classics” such as seat covers, carpets and car mats. Also in the safety equipment, e.g. airbag and safety belt, textiles and seams are indispensable. Even under the hood and at the wheels, textiles fulfill essential functions.
 
In the field of Knitting, a circular knitting machine made of acryl occupies center stage. The transparent nature of the machine allows deep insights in the interaction of all components – Groz-Beckert needles, system parts, and cylinder. 
 
14 knitting technologies are shown, among others bodysize, single jersey and double jersey including several jacquard techniques, as well as a unique gauge gradient on a segment of a cylinder from E10 to E50. Another central topic is the improvement of the productivity in the circular knitting process. On-site each exhibition visitor has the chance to have his individual potential in terms of productivity and saving resources calculated. 
 
Moreover, the visitor can discover by himself where unused potentials can be found – which can be tapped by the use of precisely fitting high-quality Groz-Beckert products. Under the motto „Fine-tune your productivity“ Groz-Beckert developed an app for this purpose, with questions and answers to the production process. 
 
It shows examples of how big the positive effects of minimal changes of the five key factors in the knitting process – machine speed, efficiency, needle life time and breakage rate as well as energy consumption – can be. The questions from the app as also serve for a raffle with attractive prizes during the trade fair. 
 
In the field of Sewing, the central theme is SEWING5. This term refers to Groz-Beckert's comprehensive service plan by which it supports the sewing industry in mastering the challenges in the market – here not only the outstanding product quality and ever more elaborate designs are requested, but also sustainable productivity and efficiency increases play a significant role. 
 
The five S of SEWING5 stand for Supply, Solutions, Service, Superiority, and Sustainability. “Superiority“, for example, in the view of Groz-Beckert, comprises certified top quality, specialist products, and the application of modern technology.
 
When it comes to quality, even the product packaging can make a real difference. The Groz-Beckert packaging enables needles to be transported and stored securely.
