From 20 to 26 June 2019, the leading trade fair of textile machinery – ITMA 2019 – will be inviting visitors to Barcelona, Spain, at the Fira De Barcelona, Gran Via. Over 120,000 specialist visitors from the textile and clothing industry all over the world are expected. Approximately 1,600 exhibitors from around 50 countries will be presenting their highlights from research and development – including Groz-Beckert.

A new feature: The plans for digital expansion of the analog range – to help us remain independent from the event time and location.
A journey into the product world with augmented reality
The individual product areas offer completely new virtual insights into the product and service world of the company thanks to augmented reality. The Knitting area also has several new products up its sleeve: A knitting machine needle that was specially designed for use in large diameter circular knitting machines that work with staple fiber yarns. A sock needle that is particularly suitable for high loads due to its optimized geometries. A needle for application-oriented use in the field of technical textiles for flat knitting machines and a needle that enables penetration into new dimensions of fineness in the flat knitting sector. In addition, the Knitting division is planning various sales campaigns for visitors at the booth.
Automated and digital processes in the sense of Industry 4.0 play an increasingly important role – also and especially in weaving preparation. Groz-Beckert’s Weaving department is taking on these challenges and presenting live at the ITMA; about how innovation and automation could look within weaving preparation. Visitors will learn everything there is to know about high-performance machines for weaving preparation; as well as the extensive range of weaving accessories.
The Felting product area will present its comprehensive contribution to the global nonwovens industry. Whether the new customer product improves customers’ know-how protection or simplifies needle logistics; the customer-specific label offers numerous advantages that visitors can learn about in detail at the ITMA.
