SEWING5 – all-round support from Groz-Beckert

Today's dynamic markets demand more than just good product quality. A key challenge here is presented by the globalization of the apparel and footwear industry, and the increasingly intense competition as a result. Amid increasing calls for new and more elaborate designs, productivity and efficiency both have to be sustainable. The answer to all this is provided by the new Groz-Beckert service concept SEWING5. The term refers to the five S's (Supply, Solutions, Service, Superiority and Sustainability) that together summarize Groz-Beckert's consistent customer orientation and service expertise:

• Supply: The art of always being able to deliver - worldwide

• Solutions: Groz-Beckert finds sewing-technology solutions even for seemingly insuperable problems

• Service: The art of being there before you are needed

• Superiority: Always one step ahead - with outstanding products and the highest quality standards

• Sustainability: It means assuming responsibility

The label scanner – protection from product piracy

As with many other high-quality brands and quality products, pirated versions of sewing machine needles from Groz-Beckert tend to turn up on occasion as well. It is often difficult for customers to distinguish them from the original products at first glance. To protect its customers from inferior copies like these, Groz-Beckert has developed a practical tool enabling the authenticity of any Groz-Beckert sewing machine needle to be virtually tested with just one click. The tool is called the "Label Scanner" and has been integrated into the "myGrozBeckert" app, where it can be found under "Sewing" in the "Toolbox" category. The app is available as a free download for both Apple and Android devices.

Loop Control® – the new sewing-needle generation

With Loop Control® geometry, Groz-Beckert offers the sewing industry a future-oriented development for solving common sewing problems. Skipped stitches are minimized because of the perfect looping, and sewing thread receives maximum protection thanks to the special geometry of the longitudinal groove. Furthermore, the innovative production method – making use of state-of-the-art forming technology – results in even higher needle stability. Whether in the lockstitch or chainstitch sector, LoopControl® lends more stability to every sewing process.

Satisfying the highest demands

Perfect seams in automotive interiors

The automotive sector places particular importance on perfect-looking decorative seams – and demands made on seam quality are also a high priority where safety is concerned. Constant innovations in this segment, in combination with Groz-Beckert's long experience of the automotive sector, guarantee perfection with regard to seam quality as well as total customer satisfaction.

With its diverse range of needle points, Groz-Beckert offers exactly the right needle for every material and every possible material combination, as well as for any desired seam pattern. Solutions that have been specifically developed for the automotive industry provide even more safety plus an even more attractive look:

With the special application needle SAN® 5 GEBEDUR® Groz-Beckert offers the optimal solution for seam connections on extremely hard materials. The special geometry of these sewing needles reduces the frequency of such familiar application problems as needle deflection, stitch-hole sticking and irregular seam appearance, thus leading to higher seam quality and higher productivity.

With the newly developed Groz-Beckert cutting point needles in the SAN® 12 range, seam appearance can be improved and adjusted for 2-needle decorative seams, as well as seams with straight and also slanted stitching. This has been achieved on the SAN® 12 LR as well as the SAN® 12-S needle by means of a precise alignment of the cut geometry, using a special blade surface.
