Groz-Beckert will be exhibiting its Felting and Carding product areas at IDEA 2022 in Miami, USA on March 28-31. Groz-Beckert experts will be presenting the latest products and solutions for the production of nonwovens to its visitors at booth 1420 in the Miami Beach Convention Center. IDEA takes place every three years and is one of the most important trade fairs for nonwovens and technical textiles for the international nonwovens industry.
The felting product group, whether hydroentanglement, traditional needling or service, will give visitors comprehensive insights into the portfolio for the nonwovens industry. Groz-Beckert will present its HyTec® P jet strips, which are characterized by a significantly higher hardness compared with conventional jet strips and therefore also offer excellent scratch resistance, for spunlace customers.
The patented GEBECON® felting needle will be another of Groz-Beckert’s highlight products in the area of traditional needling. It offers optimized bending resistance with high flexibility thanks to its unique geometry and will be viewed in the detail at the booth by using Augmented Reality.
Groz Beckert’s new range of metallic card clothing and more at IDEA 2022
The felting product group that will be highlighted for customers at the booth has lots of benefits, including know-how protection and improved needle logistics. In addition, visitors will be able to take a virtual tour through the technology facility in the Groz-Beckert Technology and Development Center (TEZ) in Albstadt, Germany. They will be able to experience the staple fibre needle punch line (SVL) up close and learn how Groz-Beckert can assist in product development as well as product and process optimization this way.
Groz-Beckert InLine card clothing series is the main focus of the product group Carding at IDEA. The company has developed a new range of metallic card clothing, which offers improved process reliability and increased up-time of the card for the nonwovens industry, thanks to a new and patented production method. The new production method also reflects the corporate principles of environmentally-friendly and resource-saving production at the same time.
The card clothings are characterized by a controlled and very precise hardening of the teeth, a reduced rib height of 1.3 millimetres and completely scale-free surfaces without burrs. An exhibit at the booth will highlight how this differs from conventional production methods and will show an impressive comparison between the new Groz-Beckert InLine card clothing and the previous generation.
SiroLock™ plus worker and doffer wire, another solution to be exhibited at IDEA, was developed as the first special geometry of the Groz-Beckert InLine card clothing series. The SiroLock™ plus impresses with a more effective fibre take-up, control and transfer in addition to the advantages of the Groz-Beckert InLine card clothings. The functionality and operating principle behind the SiroLock™ plus will be experienced by IDEA visitors via Augmented Reality.
