The textile world at a glance: From litespeed® plus to dur
In the textile world trends undergo extreme change. What is modern today might be gone and forgotten tomorrow. Not only sections, but fabrics and manufacturing techniques also depend on this type of continuous change. The few constants in the sector thus carry even more weight. Among them has been, for years, the Techtextil in Frankfurt, Germany. The leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens presented the entire spectrum of potential applications for textile technologies from 9 to 12 May, 2017. Of course, Groz-Beckert did its part and was represented with a booth at the highly-visited trade fair.

litespeed® plus – from innovation to efficiency
litespeed® plus was first presented at ITMA Milan in November 2015 and to a wider audience in the following Newsletter in December 2015. Since then, the litespeed® plus product portfolio has continually been expanded with more and more needle types being offered in the litespeed® plus version. But how do the needles measure up in the field? Groz-Beckert has talked to customers in Turkey who have been testing litespeed® plus needles to find out just that.
The variety of woven clothing textiles
Whether geotextiles, curtains or shirting fabrics ─ woven fabrics are with us every day. The application fields of woven fabrics can be divided into three main groups: Clothing textiles, home textiles and technical textiles. Groz-Beckert makes a valuable and essential contribution to achieving optimal woven fabric quality and smooth weaving processes with its unique product portfolio for weaving preparation and weaving accessories.
"dur" - longer service life and resistance to corrosion
Groz-Beckert puts its innovative capacity on display with the Felting division’s “dur”, this year's latest innovation, distinguished by a combination of patented manufacturing process and new base material. The advantages of the significantly higher surface hardness are results in longer service life and increased resistance to corrosion as compared to standard needles.
