Groz-Beckert with new insights in glass at ITMA Asia

Groz-Beckert will be present at the sixth ITMA Asia + CITME in Shanghai, next month, with all six product areas and receiving customers and partners. The knitting product area will be presenting its portfolio for circular knitting, flat knitting, leg wear and warp knitting at ITMA Asia. The division will be placing a particular focus on a system-oriented approach: Thanks to extremely tight production tolerances, needles and system parts from a single source guarantee precisely coordinated tools for smooth interaction.

This year, a new acrylic exhibit of a sock machine rounds off the glass insights into the different knitting technologies. The exhibit demonstrates a wide range of Groz-Beckert products in different gauges – with needles and system parts for ten different models from the fields of socks and seamless hosiery. The knitting division is also planning a wide range of promotions for visitors to the booth.

As a system provider, Groz-Beckert also offers a unique product variety with its weaving division. Visitors can experience some of these products at ITMA Asia. The high-performance tying machine KnotMaster will be presented in the field of weaving preparation.

Heald frames and healds, as well as warp stop motions, drop wires and the PosiLeno leno system, will be available for customers to experience in action in the WeavingLoom, a replica weaving machine made from acrylic glass. Four fabric strips will also be presented, highlighting the different applications.

Groz-Beckert has also expanded its range for application advice with its own staple fibre needle punch line in the field of felting (nonwovens) in the Textile and Development Center (TDC) in Albstadt, Germany. The system is available to customers and partners for tests and joint projects. Visitors can experience the staple fibre needle punch line live at the Groz-Beckert booth.

The division will also be presenting its patented Gebecon felting needle for improved surface quality and optimal bending resistance. The EcoStar felting needle is a highlight for all applications with the highest demands for surface quality.

For spun lace customers, Groz-Beckert will be presenting the innovative HyTec jet strip. The significantly higher hardness and the spring-hard properties are said to have a positive impact on all mechanical properties.

As a system provider, Groz-Beckert also offers all tool components – consisting of tufting needles, loopers, reed fingers and tufting knives, in the field of tufting – all from a single source. The Gauge Part System from Groz-Beckert impresses with its controlled and coordinated selection of materials and adherence to the narrowest tolerances. The precise dimension coordination between all individual tools used forms the basis for a smooth interplay between the various components within the system.

“A perfectly coordinated interplay between the clothings in the field of carding achieves an optimal carding result both in the revolving flat card and in the roller card,” the company says. “The use of special clothing geometries in the nonwovens industry, like the worker and doffer wires SiroLock and EvoStep leads to better fibre control and a more even web. The SiroLock card clothing also impresses with increased performance of the roller card, while EvoStep card clothing focuses on saving raw material.”

For the spinning industry, Groz-Beckert offers metallic card clothings, flat top and stationary flat clothings, as well as flexible strips. For processing synthetic fibres in particular, the company offers a special card clothing with a curved tooth profile: the synthetic doffer wire D40-30-52C CBF.

The sewing product area will be showing how the different stitch formation types work in detail at ITMA Asia. The individual stitch types differ in the number and geometrical arrangement of the threads and are divided into six basic types (classes 100 to 600). There will be an opportunity to experience the stitch type 605 (cover chain stitch) at the trade fair. The acrylic replica of a sewing machine and an animation will bring the interaction between the machine, needle and threads to life at the Groz-Beckert booth.
