Groz-Beckert at CINTE 2018 in Shanghai
Albstadt, Germany/Shanghai, China: The nonwovens industry and anyone with an interest in technical textiles come together every two years at CINTE in Shanghai, China. In 2018, the subsidiary of the German textile trade fair will take place from 4 to 6 September. Numerous companies will be presenting their product innovations – including Groz-Beckert. The leading worldwide provider of industrial machine needles will be represented at CINTE with its extensive product portfolio and range of services in the fields of Felting and Carding in Hall N1, Booth D 01.
The Felting product area will be presenting its products and services at the trade fair. As a development partner, Groz-Beckert has expanded its application consulting services with the staple fiber needle punch line. The line is available in various versions to customers and partners for tests and joint projects in both needle and textile development. At the Groz-Beckert booth, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the technology line live. The 3D print model in scale 1:18 of the original line in the Textile and Development Center (TEZ) at the Groz-Beckert headquarters in Albstadt, Germany, impresses with its wealth of technical detail.
Groz-Beckert will also be focusing on special needle solutions for good surface quality in pre-needling. The GEBECON® felting needle offers improved stability compared with a conventional standard felting needle – combined with good needle flexibility. Groz-Beckert will be highlighting this and other advantages in a live demonstration on a miniature needling machine and a man-high needle model.
In addition to the EcoStar® felting needle and the new Groz-Beckert® dur needle, the company will also be presenting the HyTec® P jet strip – its latest product for hydroentanglement. As well as improved handling properties, the innovative jet strips also feature significantly higher hardness, which has a positive effect on all mechanical properties such as scratch resistance, bending strength and service life.
The Carding division will be presenting its extensive product range for the nonwovens industry at CINTE. This includes optimal specifications for a wide range of applications. A selection of card clothing will be available to view at the Groz-Beckert booth on a roller top card model made from acrylic.
The focus here will be on increasing performance and saving raw materials: Thanks to the improved fiber control, the EvoStep® high-performance worker and doffer wire distributes the fibers more uniformly in the web and helps to achieve the nonwoven properties more efficiently. This means that the use of raw materials can be reduced to a minimum.
The SiroLock® high-performance worker and doffer wire also offers opportunities to save on raw material – mainly through the more uniform web quality. It also offers increased performance thanks to the higher achievable delivery speeds and web weights. Alongside the increased performance without fiber fly, SiroLock® also offers improved blending of the fibers.
