The Felting area presents an absolute novelty with Groz-Beckert customized product: Thanks to the customizable customer label, Groz-Beckert customers not only benefit from enhanced know-how protection, but also from more security and safety when handling needles in production.
Another highlight of the stand is the 3D print model of the staple fiber needling line (SVL). The SVL has been available to Groz-Beckert customers and partners for the last two years at the company's Albstadt headquarters, in the Technology and Development Center (TEZ), in Germany.
Within the traditional nonwovens industry, Groz-Beckert's GEBECON felting needle offers the best possible fracture/bending properties and thus optimized needling parameters, as well as an improved surface quality of the final product. Groz-Beckert will be presenting details of the patented shape of working part of this needle at the trade fair stand using a man-sized needle exhibit. Groz-Beckert also has such an exhibit ready for Spunlace customers: In addition to its improved handling properties, the innovative HyTec P jet strip also has a significantly higher hardness, which has a positive effect on all mechanical properties such as scratch resistance, flexural rigidity and service life.
The Carding area completes Groz-Beckert's product range for the nonwovens industry. At Techtextil visitors can directly compare different tooth geometries. The worker and user sets SiroLock and EvoStep, for example, ensure improved fiber control in the fleece. SiroLock also impresses with performance enhancements in carding, while the EvoStep set emphasizes on saving raw material.
