Groz-Beckert to display sewing machineries at IFAI 2018

September 25, 2018 - Germany

Groz-Beckert will participate in the sewing product area in booth #2016, at the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) expo, which will be held from October 15-18, 2018, in Dallas, US. The trade fair is famous for clothing and technical textiles. Groz-Beckert is the provider of industrial machine needles and precision parts for textile fabrics.

The company will display a variety of special application needles (SAN), offering the perfect needle for every situation, tailored to the relevant application. The SAN 5.2 for sewing technical textiles will be shown at IFAI. The special shaft reinforcement increases the needle stability, for example, and the double coding in the point area improves the thread guidance in both linear and multi-directional sewing processes. For extremely fine loop and weave materials, on the other hand, special applications needles SAN 10 and SAN 10 XS are used.

The shaft geometry of both needles is gentle on the material and guarantees fault-free processing. The special shape of the needle eye also helps to reduce the number of skipped stitches and needle and thread breakages. Equipped with a titanium nitride coating (Gebedur), both needles also offer improved wear protection and a longer lifetime. This leads to a significant improvement in efficiency in the sewing operation, Groz-Beckert said in a media statement.

In addition to the high demands placed on the sewing operation itself, topics such as occupational health and safety and environmental protection are also becoming ever more important in today’s market. The regulations often go beyond the legal requirements, as brand owners and stores apply their own codes of conduct and monitor compliance closely.

The Quality Management INH (Ideal Needle Handling) developed by Groz-Beckert offers support here. It is tailored perfectly to the processes in sewing operations and facilitates problem-free and time-saving handling and documentation of broken and damaged sewing machine needles. The process, thus, has a direct positive impact on occupational health and safety, productivity and the environment. The company will display the same at the expo.

With the Online Customer Portal Sewing, Groz-Beckert also supports its customers online in all aspects of the production process. The ever-expanding knowledge database provides customers with a wealth of information on sewing technology as well as many details about Groz-Beckert products and services around the clock, anywhere in the world. In addition to videos on different types of stitch formation, a product catalogue is also available in the portal, with a quick and reliable product search function. These products can then be ordered quickly and easily in the linked Online Shop. (GK)
