How the Groz-Beckert Tufting System is impressing the world

This year's DOMOTEX was a great success once again, introducing new floor covering concepts and impressively underlining its leading position as the top fair for the industry. The high visitor numbers and the quality of the international specialists who attended formed an efficient basis for discussions with the most important people in the business. Groz-Beckert successfully presented its innovative tufting system – not only at the DOMOTEX in Hanover in January but also at the DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR in March!

Safe processes in every application

The market for textile carpet floor coverings in Asia and especially in China has been growing at relatively high speed over the past few years – in contrast to the traditional markets in Western Europe and the USA. The dynamic development in China is being supported by generous investments in new machines as well as the establishment of outlets by numerous foreign carpet manufacturers. The production of artificial turf in particular has grown exponentially in recent years. It is clear that increased efficiency in the tufting process is having an effect on traditional as well as new tufting markets.

Groz-Beckert consequently made good use of its trade fair presentations in Hanover and Shanghai to touch base with its international contacts – and also to acquire new customers with attractive solutions.

In this regard, the Groz-Beckert Tufting System was presented at the DOMOTEX for the first time. "Processing safety through functional interplay" is the slogan for this impressive concept.

The Groz-Beckert Tufting System is a logical development focussing on the steadily growing requirements from carpet manufacturers where precision and processing safety are concerned. It has been designed as part of a system and can be used in all the relevant tufting applications.
