GEBEDUR® needle 



Coated for higher resistance against wear

After a shorter running period, standard needles exhibit marked traces of wear caused by the fibers. As a result, the barb loses some of its shape, needling becomes inconsistent and the product properties change.

The use of wear-resistant Groz-Beckert GEBEDUR® needles in continuous industrial operation ensures consistent, economical needle punching over prolonged periods of time. Their special feature is their high resistance against wear. Here, several different variants of this innovative felting needle are in operation in the nonwovens industry: GEBEDUR®I needles have a special surface coating of titanium nitride, while GEBEDUR®II needles are subjected to special metallurgical treatment.

The benefits of GEBEDUR® needles at a glance:


  • Longer service life
  • Improved wearing properties
  • Constant and economically efficient needling over a long period
  • Minimized machine setup and downtimes
  • High process reliability
  • Long operation times
