Focus on the textile world: from batteries to artificial turf
Excellence in textile production depends on a lot of factors. In addition to the materials used, it is also very important to carefully match the means of production with the desired end product. As a partner along the entire textile value chain, Groz-Beckert sets new standards here: Steady further development is assured by the company's comprehensive expertise in specific technologies combined with its awareness of what lies beyond their boundaries. At the Techtextil and Texprocess 2015 in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), Groz-Beckert demonstrated how this holistic approach to textile production can trigger important synergies between technologies. And with Groz-Beckert's recent acquisition of the carding activities of the Belgian Bekaert Group, the company's competence continues to grow.

Battery systems – longer-lasting thanks to nonwovens
Growing worldwide demand for energy and the increasingly fierce climate debate is also boosting demand for battery systems of different types, shapes and performance in both the private and industrial sector. The latest developments have demonstrated that the use of a nonwoven can significantly increase the service life of battery systems.
From sports to landscaping
Persistently high growth rates and technological developments are giving the artificial turf sector excellent prospects for the future. The "AMI Grass Yarn & Tufters Forum" in Vienna in February offered a very good opportunity to learn more about new products, technological developments, structural changes and growth prospects of the industry. The increasing importance of tuftlock in the backing material was a particular focus of interest, and the future of yarn materials was also intensively discussed.
