Resilience down to the smallest detail

Just an image


The majority of tools that are used in textile production and joining are extremely small and must be able to carry out delicate work with extreme precision. The latch shank of the current finest circular knitting needle for machines with gauge E80 and E90 shows just how delicate and precise: It is as thin as a human hair.

The tools must also withstand high loads and carry out demanding and high-stress work despite their fineness. The challenge when producing the tools lies in the combination of these seemingly contradictory properties in order to fulfill the complex requirements in the sector.

In this newsletter, we will not only present different Groz-Beckert products developed specifically for these special and challenging applications, but will also provide an insight into the high quality commitments of the Groz-Beckert subsidiary Steven Reeds. The quality commitment runs through all areas of Groz-Beckert and is also reflected in the selection of business partners, as shown in the VAUDE customer portrait.

We hope you enjoy reading and discovering.
