Welcome to Groz-Beckert at the Techtextil and Texprocess 2017

The Techtextil will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, from 9 to 12 May 2017 at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds under the slogan “Connecting the Future”. Parallel to the Techtextil, the Texprocess is presenting the latest products from the international garment-manufacturing and textile processing industry.

In September of last year the number of people registered for the Techtextil exceeded organizer expectations – at this point in time 85% of exhibition space from the year 2015 had been booked. Scores of national and international exhibitors are expected at the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens – Techtextil – and for the processing of textile materials – Texprocess. Groz-Beckert will be there too, presenting its comprehensive product and service portfolio for the textile value chain at booth F03 in hall 3.0. This Newsletter will provide you with insight into the trade show and with initial details on the latest innovations from Groz-Beckert.

System-based solutions for individual needs

Deeper market penetration and customer-specific requirements drive the demand for high quality components ever higher. Challenges in working with metal and carbon put increasing pressure on the textile market. Groz-Beckert responds to these challenges concerning capacity, wear and processability with perfectly aligned system solutions from a single source - and that along the entire textile value chain.

To boost performance and save raw material within the carding process, Groz-Beckert offers the high-performance worker and doffer wires SiroLock® and EvoStep®.

The latest innovation for further processing of the web, Groz-Beckert® dur, has been optimized for longer service life and resistance to corrosion of the felting needles. Spunlace customers can expect another improvement with the HyTec® P jet strips, featuring improved handling properties and significantly higher hardness. Groz-Beckert will present the different specifications of the new jet strip at the Techtextil. We will also provide you with complete information on the PosiLeno® leno system, featuring one-of-a-kind performance and flexibility, especially in the manufacture of wide-ranging and custom end products.

From technical support to application advice

While traditional service in recent years, including in international competition, has changed dramatically, “more” has long been a tradition for the customers and partners of Groz-Beckert. As a development partner, Groz-Beckert is always a step ahead of its time, closely cooperating to develop the products and technologies of tomorrow. At the Techtextil we are looking forward to showing you the latest additions to our Technology and Development Center at corporate headquarters in Albstadt: The new staple fiber needle punch line at technical-center scale allows us to raise application advice to the next level.
Groz-Beckert makes another valuable contribution to optimized application advice with quality management INH (Ideal Needle Handling). The new, digital solution for documenting needle breakage – Smart INH – completes the patented process for handling sewing-machine needles throughout the sewing operation.
