The top-class raw materials used coupled with high ISO-certified processing standards, a flawless surface finish and meticulously designed geometry make our products ideally suited to withstanding extreme loads in the loop forming process. Their durability has a positive impact on the cost efficiency of your production.

The machines and tools used for the manufacture of our products are designed and produced in our own in-house mechanical engineering department in Albstadt, Germany. As these products are constructed in-house, tolerances can be achieved to within thousands of a millimeter – not visible to the naked eye but decisive when it comes to process reliability and production economy.

At Groz-Beckert, all the components of knitting or warp knitting systems are precisely inter-coordinated. The perfect interplay of knitting machines, needles, system parts and other components guarantees a homogeneous, flawless loop forming process. Even the most complex production processes and different functional requirements can be implemented without problems.

Machine manufacturers and end users the world over place their trust in Groz-Beckert as a development partner and quality supplier. We continue the further development of our product spectrum based on our wealth of expertise.

An array of different patents testify not only to innovative ideas but also to a focused, open approach, and underpin Groz-Beckert's position at the forefront of the market.

Right from the product development stage, Groz-Beckert focuses on the sparing use of resources and reduction of harmful emissions. One notable example of this approach is the litespeed® needle family for high-performance circular knitting machines. In 2010, Groz-Beckert was awarded the KYOCERA Environmental Prize for the litespeed® needle, and in 2011 it received the Korea EU Award.
