Groz-Beckert at SINCE 2013
Shanghai/Albstadt: Groz-Beckert will take part in the Shanghai International Nonwovens Conference & Exhibition (SINCE) from 23 to 25 October 2013 and present the latest highlights in the field of felting needles and jet strips. SINCE is one of the of the world's major exhibitions for nonwovens worldwide and serves the more than 400 exhibitors from 30 countries as a platform for the communication about the nonwovens industry in Asia. Visitors find the Groz-Beckert booth P 20 in hall H1.
At SINCE Groz-Beckert presents the new EcoStar felting needle as the first result of the “Innovations Initiative Nonwovens”. The universal felting needle for almost all requirements is a real highlight in the nonwovens sector: In comparison with standard needles it offers users an improved surface quality of the end product, longer service life combined with reduced energy consumption, and the fiber transport has a lower penetration force, but the same efficiency.
Another topic is the GEBECON® needle, which provides the ideal combination: good surface quality of the end product plus best possible bending resistance properties. Due to its high stability and flexibility the felting needle with patented technology is suited for extreme challenges such as very high production speeds.
The twisted needle is the latest supplement of the nonwovens product range. The needle with the special needle geometry offers numerous advantages, for example an even product surface and improved tensile strength of the end product, higher production speed or potential savings of raw material. Tests among others with development partners – manufacturers of automotive textiles and geotextiles – show promising results in terms of textile physical properties.
Furthermore the newly-developed HyTec® D Jet Strip for hydroentangled products is shown. It is adapted for the application in spunlace systems, in terms of both hardness and durability, and provides numerous advantages. Examples are reduced energy consumption and nozzle edges with improved wear resistance. The HyTec® GEBEDUR® Jet Strip signifies the consistent development which exceeds the standard. Due to the GEBEDUR® coating the jet strip has a robust surface in the capillary area. The longer service time resulting from this leads to end products with uniform product characteristics – over a long period of time.
