Groz-Beckert with felting and carding at the Idea 2016
The GEBECON® felting needle, that was among the top 3 of this year's RISE Durable Product Award, is characterized by an increased stability compared to a conventional standard felting needle and, at the same time, provides a high needle elasticity and produces a good surface quality in the pre-needling process. The EcoStar® needle, used for intermediate and finish needling, guarantees a high surface quality of the end product. For products that require a particularly high tensile strength, the Twisted needle is the most suitable choice. Its special feature – the twisted working part – ensures a particularly efficient needling. It is used in the production of automotive textiles, geotextiles and other applications.

For the mechanical bonding of nonwovens, among others used for hygiene and medical products, Groz-Beckert offers jet strips in all customary dimensions and nozzle geometries – and made from different materials. At the exhibition, three jet strip version made of different materials will be presented: HyTec® Standard, HyTec® D and HyTec® GEBEDUR®. The material used for the HyTec® Standard is characterized by an excellent corrosion resistance. The material used for HyTec® D additionally provides an increased stability and protects the jet strip even better.
Moreover, its surface quality prevents the accumulation of dirt. The GEBEDUR® version is characterized by a special treatment giving the jet strip a high surface resistance in the area of the capillary edges. This results in a long service life of the HyTec® GEBEDUR® jet strip, with homogeneous product properties.
Metallic wires of the SiroLock® and EvoStep® series are characterized by a distinctive step under the tip of the tooth front. The optimized geometries of these wires allow an up to 30 % better fiber taking and holding, while reducing fiber fly and improving the fiber blending even at high production speeds. The better fiber control significantly improves the fiber transfer from the main cylinder to the worker or doffer rollers and, therefore, saves unnecessary fiber circulation around the main cylinder. The reduced maintenance effort enables a quicker and trouble-free restart.
SiroLock® and EvoStep®, provide a clearly better fiber blending and, therefore, allow to produce a higher nonwoven quality than with conventional wires while reducing fiber consumption.
