Groz-Beckert used its exhibits and video clips to demonstrate that it is possible to save resources and to have an improvement in productivity at the same time by choosing and using intelligent products. The focus was on the customer benefits, the company reports.

Alongside video clips Groz-Beckert chose realistic seeming textile machinery made of acrylic glass for product presentation for the fields of knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding and sewing. For each product area acrylic glass machines and exhibits were prepared and equipped with the company's products. This made the area of application visible, for example, the knitting machine needles and system parts and their perfectly matched interaction.

Presentations

In this context, the first presentation of the knitting needle LightSpeed Plus was one of the highlights. By using this needle type it is said to be possible to reduce the energy consumption up to 20% compared to conventional needles. Another novelty was the presentation of the new product range Carding, who was first represented on a booth of Groz-Beckert.
