"PremioBox" – the new packaging solution for fine-gauge

Rely on optimum protection, improved removal, and safe needle handling with fine-gauge needles! In the future, for almost all knitting-machine needles with pressings of 0.18 – 0.34 mm, Groz-Beckert will be providing innovative needle packaging. Under the name of "PremioBox", it is due to be presented for the first time at the ITMA ASIA 2012 in Shanghai. In the following video you can experience the new solution for yourself!

Optimum protection, removal, and safe needle handling

The "PremioBox" has been designed to be extremely flexible. The needles can be removed either individually or in packs. A special holding-down element facilitates the removal process. Nothing slips, nothing gets caught. In other words: ideal prerequisites for rapid loading of the knitting machine.

Additionally, the loop-forming part of the needles is protected by a special spring, which holds the latch in the open position. This makes it possible to knit on directly!

While conventional packaging solutions only contain 50 needles, the "PremioBox" has enough room for 125 of them. Subdivision into five handy packs of 25 needles each has the advantage that the needles can be fanned into the machine without a problem. The option of fanning in a larger amount of needles, and the concomitant risk of bending one or more of them, are now a thing of the past.
