In the area of Knitting, for the product areas of circular knit, legwear, knitwear and flat knitwear, the focus will be on system solutions. Another key topic is the expansion of the product portfolio, for example by offering needles in new intricacies – including coated needles. Additional needle types in the patented litespeed plus version and new system components complete the product portfolio. In addition, the company enables its customers to enter new business fields with individual developments for specific applications.
The Weaving product area will present its range of products for weaving preparation and weaving accessories. In addition, the trade fair stand will be offering both special healds and new insights into monofilament: in addition to highest row densities, these also allow a particularly thread-gentle processing. Combined with the innovative thread eye, which is not soldered but glued into the monofilament, these healds ensure consistent fabric quality and maximum machine efficiency. The new ANTABRA surface treatment provides additional wear resistance. The new Antabra surface treatment provides additional wear resistance.  
The Felting area presents an absolute novelty with a Groz-Beckert customized product: Thanks to the made-to-order customer label, Groz-Beckert customers not only benefit from enhanced know-how protection, but also from more security and safety when handling needles in production. Another highlight of the stand is the 3D print model of the staple fiber needling line (SVL). The SVL is available to customers at the company's headquarters, in the Technology and Development Center (TEZ).
Within the traditional nonwovens industry, Groz-Beckert's Gebecon felting needle offers the best possible fracture/bending properties and thus optimized needling parameters, as well as an improved surface quality of the final product. Details of the patented shape of working part of this needle will be presented at the trade fair stand using a man-sized needle exhibit. Such an exhibit will also be ready for Spunlace customers: In addition to its improved handling properties, the innovative HyTec P jet strip also has a significantly higher hardness, which has a positive effect on all mechanical properties such as scratch resistance, flexural rigidity and service life.
The Carding area completes the company’s product range for the nonwovens industry. At the Techtextil visitors can directly compare different tooth geometries. The worker and user sets SiroLock and EvoStep, for example, ensure improved fiber control in the fleece. SiroLock also impresses with performance enhancements in carding, while the EvoStep sets emphasizes on saving raw material.
The Sewing product area presents various special application needles at this year's Texprocess trade fair program. Their use increases the process reliability and productivity when sewing textiles that make special demands on a trouble-free sewing process. In addition to the special application needles SAN 5.2 and SAN 6 that are both specifically designed for the processing of technical textiles, medium and heavy weaving, the company introduces the redesigned SAN 10 XS. Thanks to redesigned geometry, these fine and finest products are even more gentle on materials. The INH (Ideal Needle Handling) quality management is a patented process helps customers handle sewing machine needles throughout the sewing process and also provides a digital solution for documenting needle breaks.
The Academy and the TEZ jointly present their cross-departmental service program. This unites diverse training courses, test services and joint developments under one roof. With customer-oriented standard solutions or individual offers, suitable solutions are found for a wide variety of requirements.
