Groz-Beckert to exhibit transparent machines at ITME India 2016

Groz-Beckert, a leading supplier of industrial machine needles, will be presenting its products and solutions in the areas of Knitting, Weaving, Felting, Carding and Sewing at the upcoming India International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITME), to be held from 3-8 December, in Mumbai.

In the Knitting sector Groz-Beckert will highlight the areas of round and flat knitting, as well as warp and sock fabrics. The transparent exhibits – detailed replicas of real knitting machines – will provide visitors with insights into the interplay of knitting machine needles and system parts.

Another highlight will be the presentation of the litespeed plus needle. Its optimised geometry is designed to lower machine temperature and increase service life, while reducing oil consumption and enabling energy savings in the knitting process of up to 20%. In the area of warp knitting, the transparent exhibits also provide a look at compound needles and warp modules from Groz-Beckert.


In the product area of Sewing, Groz-Beckert will highlight its special application needle SAN 5, a proven performer for working with technical textiles. The improved SAN 5.2, which meets the more demanding requirements in the area of technical textiles, boasts a unique geometry, the company reports. The thread guide, for instance, has been improved for both linear, as well as multi-directional sewing processes, by the double groove in the point. Moreover, the SAN 5.2 has an additional scarf chamfer on the left side, to ensure more secure loop formation.

Another Sewing highlight of the fair will be the Groz-Beckert Customer Portal. This continuously expanding knowledge platform makes available comprehensive information on sewing technology and many details on sewing products from Groz-Beckert. In addition to videos on different types of stitch formation, Groz-Beckert also offers a new product catalogue to quickly look up products.

Groz-Beckert will also be presenting its new quality management Ideal Needle Handling (INH) for the sewing industry. It involves a patented process that allows trouble-free and time-saving handling of broken and damaged sewing machine needles in running operation.

Felting, carding and weaving

The product area Felting will also be presenting at this year's ITME India. This product area focuses on felting and structuring needles for flat-needled and structured nonwovens.

For the first time, Groz-Beckert's youngest product area Carding will be represented at the India ITME. The comprehensive range of products encompasses the industry branches short staple and long staple spinning, as well as the nonwovens industry.

High quality weaving accessories and machines for weaving preparation will also be on display. Among others, Groz-Beckert is presenting the KnotMaster warp-tying machine. Despite a multitude of functions – four knot types, simple and double knots, short knot ends and yarn-break detector – the modern touch-screen control is especially easy to operate.
