While the TEZ will be presenting its wide range of options for problem solving, optimizations and new developments, the Academy will be showing its comprehensive training range. A new feature: the plans for digital expansion of the analog range – to help remain independent from the event time and location.
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: 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 stand.
Automated and digital processes in the sense of Industry 4.0 play an increasingly important role – also and especially in weaving preparation. The company’s Weaving department will be presenting live, how innovation and automation could look within weaving preparation.
The Felting product area will present its 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.
Increasing demands on the quality of products are shaping the demands of end customers in the area of Tufting. The corresponding tools demand maximum performance. These requirements are being taken on with the quality promise of its gauge part system.
Around 4 years after integrating the product area Carding, numerous new developments will be presented at the ITMA. The new InLine clothing series for the nonwovens industry, further developed cylinder and doffer wires, and stationary and revolving flats for the spinning industry are some examples.
The Sewing product area will be presenting various innovations that meet various requirements. The variety of materials is immense: from the finest knitted goods to the thickest leather. The process of sewing is faced with different challenges at every turn. To ensure the right product for every situation, the company offers an extensive product range and provides support far beyond the actual sewing process with additional services.
