How can ultra-fine cotton chains be tyed together efficiently? Groz-Beckert demonstrates this at the ITMA in Barcelona with the aid of a fast and universal KnotMaster tying machine, model AS/3. With its standard units for short knot-ends and for thread breakage control the machine also fulfils all requirements where other applications are concerned. The model XS/3 quattro, perfect for fashion weavers, will be demonstrated using the advanced computer control KC/3. The control not only facilitates operation but also reduces the risk of errors.

The fully automatic drawing-in machine WarpMaster features a new computer generation with a larger touchscreen, which enables simpler and faster operation. The new operating unit also has a remote support capability. Telemaintenance can thus be carried out via modem - for customer service in real time.

With the robust quality of the proven KFW 5600, the KFW 5800 is the successor of the eight-row KFW 1200. With reinforced thread carriers and reduced weight, it caters to the steadily increasing requirements of modern weaving machines and guarantees interruption-free warp stop motion monitoring.

High-performance heald frame ALtop® – Now also with 140mm aluminium profile

Just an image

The diverse Groz-Beckert heald frame assortment has been enhanced by the ALtop® heald frame with a 140mm aluminium profile. Its sturdy, high-performance corner connection using steel supports requires no plastic components and thus reduces wear. The patented technology of the ALtop® 140 is also offered with a newly-designed intermediate strut. This is clamped from steel to steel, and no longer to the aluminium profile. The result is far longer service life for the heald frame.
