Groz-Beckert, the provider of industrial machine needles, precision parts and fine tools, as well as systems and services for the production and joining of textile fabrics, will be presenting the latest innovations from its product area Carding to visitors at INDEX™ in Geneva, Switzerland, on April, 18–21. INDEX™, one of the leading international trade fairs for the nonwoven sector is expected to host over 660 exhibitors and around 13,000 visitors from more than 100 countries in an exhibition area of over 50,000 m2. The InLine card clothing series for the nonwoven industry will take centre stage at the Groz-Beckert exhibition booth 2541. While a new and patented manufacturing process made the development of the innovative metallic card clothing series possible, it offers customers improved process reliability and increased uptime of the card. At the same time, the new process enables environmentally friendly and resource-saving production.
In addition to a controlled and precise hardening of the teeth, the wires are characterized by a reduced rib height and a completely scale-free surface. An exhibit at the booth will demonstrate what distinguishes the new process from the conventional production method and will highlight the differences between the new Groz-Beckert InLine card clothing series and its predecessor generation.
Visitors will experience the Groz-Beckert technology with augmented reality
The first special geometry of the Groz-Beckert InLine card clothing series to be developed was the SiroLock™ plus worker and doffer wire. It impresses with a more effective fiber take-up, control and transfer. Augmented reality will allow visitors to experience the functionality and operating principle behind SiroLock™ plus at INDEX™.
