Highlights of the ITMA ASIA + CITME 2010
From June 22 to 26, international experts will be in Shanghai, China, where the ITMA ASIA + CITME is being held there for the second time. The trade fair is the international meeting point for textile suppliers and associated companies.
The Groz-Beckert knitting machine parts division is looking forward to the trade fair with great confidence. Alongside innovative needle developments, the Groz-Beckert knitting head and the Groz-Beckert cylinder will be the focus of interest.
litespeed® – An environment-friendly development
The environment problem - increasingly a topic of discussion, especially in the media - is influencing people's steadily-growing environmental awareness. As a result there has been an increasing readiness over the past few years to take action with regard to environmental protection and gentleness on resources.
Pacific Textiles - Green Production in Asia
Pacific Textiles is a leading manufacturer for customized knitted fabric with a focus on complex and high value-added fabrics. Despite a challenging environment with lackluster consumer confidence and low spending power, the group could uphold its competitive edge and achieve an encouraging performance during the first half of 2009 / 2010 business year.
As of January 1, 2010 all the activities of GROB Textile AG, Lachen (Switzerland) were transferred to the Groz-Beckert Group headquarters in Albstadt, South Germany. The important reasons behind this far-reaching decision relate to a further reinforcement of the quality brand GROB as a genuine full-assortment provider and competent systems supplier in everything to do with weaving.
Special emphasis has been placed here on know-how concentration, expansion of development, innovation and sales, cross-divisional synergies, even better service and optimal availability.
Leno weaving systems have a broad range of uses and are also being used increasingly in technical applications. This is resulting in attractive market potential. PosiLeno® - the new simplified and flexible leno system - makes performance increases of more than 100 percent possible, compared to conventional leno systems. The preconditions here are created by optimised shed formation movements for doup frames, heald frames and warp yarns.
Board Master System – for efficient needleboard logistics
The market for nonwovens demands innovative solutions - and Groz-Beckert welcomes this challenge.
At the ITMA 2007 in Munich, following extensive development work, Groz-Beckert presented the prototype of the Board Master System. Further development of the modular system is currently a priority, and the first models are already being tested in practice.

Offices, public areas, hospitals, wards and care centres, laboratories and schools, kindergartens, swimming pools, stairways - here and in many other places, floor coverings play a key role as the upper layer of the floor. This article takes a look at their numerous different aspects.
