Technology and Development Center

Working with mechanical engineers, operators, textile manufacturers and institutes, Groz-Beckert shapes the textile future at its Technology and Development Center (TEZ).


The goals – innovation and improvement along the textile chain

One of the TEZ's starting points involves the development of market-ready innovative products with textile covering. In addition to precision parts and systems for textile production, this also involves developing new types of textile surfaces and fabrics. For this Groz-Beckert closely cooperates with customers and partners.

Another TEZ starting point lies in new potentials and efficiency boosting within the textile value chain. Precisely the interfaces between tool and machine and tool and textile harbor enormous potentials which Groz-Beckert would like to utilize in association with its partners.
