Experience precision down to the smallest detail
We can't wait to get started. ITMA Asia 2023 in Shanghai will soon be opening its doors. On November 19 to be precise. And precision is key. It has been the driving force behind innovation at Groz-Beckert for more than 170 years and has made us the world's leading provider of industrial machine needles, precision parts and fine tools for knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding and sewing.
And there's another highlight we are looking forward to: You. Visit us at ITMA Asia. Here's a preview of what awaits you at our booth.
Hall 4 | Booth C06
Once again in 2023, we have come up with something special for visitors to our booth to showcase our products optimally and make the visit a real experience.
Discover what awaits you at the Groz-Beckert booth before the ITMA Asia starts.
Our product range
Regardless of which product area you are interested in, we will be presenting a wide range of new products and our latest innovations at the ITMA – here is a little preview.
Two newly developed knitting systems, which were implemented together with machine builders, will be presented in the Circular knitting segment. The developments focus on energy savings, extended cleaning intervals and increased process reliability. The Flat knitting area will be presenting a newly developed high-speed needle, which is particularly suitable for manufacturing technical or medical textiles. We have developed sock and fine sock needles as well as system parts for customers in the Legwear segment. The products help to reduce the costs of the knitting process thanks to their high resistance. The Warp knitting product group will be presenting new needle modules and the newly developed guide needle for piezo jacquard machines at the booth.
In addition to the machines for weaving preparation, the Weaving product area will present its recently expanded portfolio of technical reeds. The new reeds enable us to supply customers who produce high-gauge woven fabrics. These reeds are used in the manufacture of woven fabrics for technical filtration, membrane technology, solar cells and touchscreens, for example.
The Felting (Nonwovens) product area will present products and services for traditional needling and hydroentanglement. Visitors can expect two world firsts in the felting needles segment: a new barb shape and the Groz-Beckert felting needle module. In the felting needle module, for the first time the needles are embedded in a plastic mold as a module. The needle modules are characterized by very high torsion strength and offer new dimensions of needle density.
The Tufting division will be presenting the proven Gauge Part System for producing tufted floor coverings such as carpets, bath mats or artificial turf. The coordinated combination of the different individual part materials and the functional interplay ensure impressive results in the production process.
The Carding product area will also be presenting various new and further developments. For example, the world’s finest interlocking wire for reduced crash risk will be included for interested parties in the nonwovens industry. For customers in the spinning industry, the division will be presenting further developed stationary and revolving flats. The new revolving flats have been adapted for processing fine yarns, while the stationary flats have been fitted with a new, durable aluminum profile.
The Sewing product area will focus on presenting its special application needles, SAN™. The SAN™ series of sewing machine needles has been specially developed for demanding sewing operations – e.g. for sewing technical or fine textiles. The division will also present its new Needle Finder. The Needle Finder is an interactive tool in the online customer portal that helps with selecting the right needle.
