Groz-Beckert felting, carding specialists at IDEA Miami

The Felting product division presented the innovative HyTec® P jet strip for the spunlace industry.

Groz-Beckert presented the Felting and Carding products at the recently-concluded IDEA. IDEA Miami is one of the key trade fairs for nonwovens and technical textiles in the international nonwovens industry. Over 550 exhibitors, visitors and companies from 70 countries came together at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The experts from Groz-Beckert presented the latest products and solutions for nonwovens production at booth 1224.

The Felting product division presented the innovative HyTec® P jet strip for the spunlace industry. With it, all mechanical properties improve such as scratch resistance, bending stiffness and service life thanks to its significantly higher hardness. The acrylic exhibit showed three different versions of the new HyTec® P jet strip.

Groz-Beckert also focused on special needle solutions: the EcoStar® and GEBECON® felting needle. The special working part cross-section of the EcoStar® felting needle meets the highest demands for product surface quality in all applications. Compared with a standard felting needle, the EcoStar® felting needle achieves an energy saving of up to seven percent in the needling process.

With the GEBECON® felting needle, users also benefit from an improved surface quality of the end product. The patented working part design provides optimal bending resistance and results in improved needling parameters. Enlarged scale models represent the special geometries and shapes of the GEBECON® and EcoStar® felting needles down to the last detail.

A special highlight for visitors to the Groz-Beckert booth was the live demonstration on a lab-scale needling machine. This highlighted the advantages of a GEBECON® felting needle compared with a standard conical felting needle via a penetration force measuring device.

The Carding product area was also represented at IDEA with its range of products and services. At the Groz-Beckert booth, the Carding product area presented its extensive range of services for the nonwoven industry, and visitors had the opportunity to interact with Carding specialists.
