Groz-Beckert displayed latest textile machinery at the sixth ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo, which was held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. The leading provider of industrial machine needles, precision parts and fine tools as well as systems and services for the production and joining of textile fabrics, welcomed over 4000 customers at its booth.

Groz-Beckert was represented with all six product areas – knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding, and sewing – and presented new transparent insights. The still relatively recent WeChat Channel also put the company in the spotlight. Visitors had the opportunity to become a follower directly at the booth and to receive the latest news on Groz-Beckert and the Chinese textile market on their smartphone in the future, the company said in a media statement.

The Groz-Beckert product areas presented their product ranges using the tried-and-tested acrylic glass machines, with some new acrylic glass exhibits. In the knitting area, for example, a new acrylic glass machine for sock production was added, while the sewing division presented a new acrylic glass sewing machine.

The felting (nonwovens) division showed its staple fibre needle punch line live in Asia – as a 3D print model in 1:18 scale. The original system is available for customers to test in the Technology and Development Centre (TEZ) in Albstadt, Germany.

Using the WeavingLoom, a weaving machine replicated in acrylic glass, Groz-Beckert showed heald frames and healds, as well as warp stop motions, drop wires, and the PosiLeno leno system in action. Tufting showed its gauge part system, which impressed with the controlled and coordinated selection of materials and compliance with the tightest tolerances. The carding division also presented its clothings on two impressive acrylic glass exhibits, which showed a revolving flat card and a roller card.

The unique transparent insights at the Groz-Beckert booth impressively demonstrated the interplay between the different components in textile machines. They clearly highlight the extremely low tolerances the needles and system parts from Groz-Beckert work in. (GK)
