Groz-Beckert, world’s leading supplier of industrial machine needles, precision parts and fine tools, and services for the production and joining of textile fabrics, is upbeat about its success at ITMA Asia 2016 trade fair. It held technical discussions with more than 4,000 visitors during the five days of the trade fair held in China last month.

Most of the visitors to the Groz-Beckert booth were from Asia. Using exhibits and films, Groz-Beckert showed how smart products and services can save resources, while at the same time increasing productivity.

To present the products, the realistic transparent textile machines first introduced at the ITMA 2015 in Milan were used for the segments of knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding and sewing. Machines equipped with Groz- Beckert needles and system parts provided the public with direct insight into product uses and their perfectly coordinated interplay.

A highlight in the Knitting segment was the introduction of the new generation of Litespeed needle: the Litespeed Plus. The use of these needles reduces energy consumption by up to 20 per cent over conventional knitting machines. The reason for this is their optimised shaft geometry.

The weaving segment also came up with a new product. In addition to healds, shafts, drop wires and warp stop motions, the segment presented its new jacquard heald. The WarpMaster drawing-in machine and the KnotMaster warp-tying machines were of great interest.

The Felting segment gave a presentation on needle solutions for filtration felts, as well as on the areas of geotextiles, papermaker felts and automotive. The glass needling machine demonstrated the advantages of a combination of GEBECON and EcoStar needles while offering direct insight into the needling process.

The Tufting segment also presented itself with a transparent exhibit. Its centrepoint was the improved gauge part system, consisting of tufting needle, gripping device, reed finger and tufting knife. The recently established Carding segment was represented for the first time at a Groz-Beckert corporate trade-fair booth in Asia. The main focus was on presentation of the synthetic doffer wire D40-30- 52C CBF, which is especially suited to processing abrasive materials such as matted synthetic fibres.

The Sewing segment put its patented quality management INH (Ideal Needle Handling) in the spotlight of its presentation. This new service includes not just process optimisation in coordination with customers, but also supplies the required work equipment by Groz-Beckert. (GK)
