ITMA Asia + CITME October 21-25, 2016

High quality and individual consulting

At the ITMA Asia + CITME 2016, the product sector Felting will present needle solutions for the filter industry. We will be happy to advise you at the Groz-Beckert fair stand on which needles are particularly suited to your specific purposes.

You will furthermore have the chance to discover needle solutions for the fields of geotextiles, filter and paper machine felts, and automotive (structured) from an entirely new perspective. A "glass" needle machine with product samples that can be touched and needle modules that can be extracted make the process a hands-on experience at the ITMA Asia.

A highlight of efficiency is the Twisted felting needle that was already displayed at the ITMA Milan 2015. Due to the defined twisting of the working part the barb arrangement is modified compared to the standard felting needle. This delivers a major benefit in needling efficiency at equal or higher rates of production. We will be glad to advise you at the ITMA Asia + CITME on any questions regarding efficiency.

Surface quality or tensile strength

The combination of felting needles GEBECON® and EcoStar® is recommended for high surface quality. The durable GEBECON® needle facilitates good surface characteristics in pre-needling. Thanks to 13 percent lower cross-section in comparison to standard needles, the use of EcoStar® in intermediate and finish needling leads to a top surface quality of the end product.

Yet the surface is not always the focal point. If high tensile strength is needed, such as for filters, a needle with a teardrop shaped working part provides clear advantages. Thanks to its special cross-section, this needle achieves high needling efficiency from improved fiber entanglement in the barb area and very gentle treatment of the carrier fabric in machine and cross machine direction.

Custom solutions from experts – Application consulting

Whether EcoStar®, GEBECON® or Teardrop - these are only three of many types of needles that the Groz-Beckert product line supplies to the filter industry. We will be thrilled to present you with a unique needle dispenser at the Groz-Beckert fair stand during the ITMA. It not only provides recommendations, but also sample needles for your specific needs.

If you would like further information on the manufacture of filters and felting needles, our Groz-Beckert experts will be glad to advise you at their stand at the ITMA Asia + CITME 2016.
