ALBSTADT - Groz-Beckert will present its latest solutions for the nonwovens industry at this week's Techtextil India 2019.
Taking place from 20 to 22 November, Techtextil India will welcome an international audience in Mumbai, where Groz-Beckert will be represented with its Felting and Carding product sectors in Hall 5, Booth B-55.
In the Felting product sector, Groz-Beckert will be presenting its new base material combined with a patented manufacturing process, called dur.
"The higher wear resistance and the improved corrosion resistance already work out for Groz-Beckert customers all around the globe," the company says. "Groz Beckert plans to extend the dur version to the complete product range, soon."
Within the traditional nonwovens industry, Groz-Beckert's Gebecon felting needle provides advantages regarding the surface quality of the final product and optimized needling parameters. At the show visitors will be presented details of the patented shape of working part of this needle with a man-sized needle exhibit.
There will also be an exhibit ready for Spunlace customers: along with absolutely homogenous jet creation with large impelling force and excellent entanglement, Groz-Beckert's HyTec P jet strip is said to ensure the highest possible productivity, quality, and efficiency. Compared to conventional jet strips, the new material possesses a much greater hardness which allows longer usage time in production.
With the Carding product sector Groz-Beckert completes its portfolio for the nonwovens industry. At Techtextil India visitors can directly compare different tooth geometries: the worker and doffer wires SiroLock and EvoStep, for example, ensure improved fibre control and web quality.
SiroLock also impresses with performance enhancements in carding, while the EvoStep card clothing emphasizes the raw material savings. In addition to Groz-Beckerts presentation at the Techtextil in Frankfurt earlier this year, Mumbai’s visitors have the possibility to learn about the new doffer and worker wire SiroLock plus. It combines a reduced rib height of the interlock card clothing with an improved strength of delicate card clothing teeth and a further optimized tooth geometry. These new properties are said to be not only effective in achieving reduced fibre fly; they also ensure a more uniform and homogeneous web.
