ALtop Hybrid 

The carbon- fiber- reinforced high-performance heald frame

High speeds and flawless fabric quality are crucial for the economic efficiency and long-term competitiveness of today's weaving mills. With the ALtop Hybrid heald frame, Groz-Beckert offers a carbon-fiber-reinforced high-performance heald frame with an innovative lightweight design. Its key performance feature is the uniquely high bending resistance of the frame staves.


Features and Advantages


Without intermediate supports


Operation without intermediate supports eliminates the potential for poor fabric quality relating to warp streaking around supports. Moreover, weaving machine downtimes during warp changes and time requirements  for drawing-in are significantly reduced.

Ultra-narrow tolerances

Heald frames from Groz-Beckert are manufactured to be process-reliable, maintaining the closest   tolerances   even in mass production. This uniformity is the primary reason for the smooth and efficient operation of the heald frames during the weaving process.
