In the weaving preparation sector, Groz-Beckert produces tying machines and also a fully-automatic drawing-in machine. Trade fair visitors will also see several interesting new and further developed weaving accessories.
How can ultra-fine cotton chains be tyed together efficiently? Groz-Beckert demonstrates this at the ITMA in Barcelona with the aid of a fast and universal KnotMaster tying machine, model AS/3. With its standard units for short knot-ends and for thread breakage control the machine also fulfils all requirements where other applications are concerned. The model XS/3 quattro, perfect for fashion weavers, will be demonstrated using the advanced computer control KC/3. The control not only facilitates operation but also reduces the risk of errors.
The fully automatic drawing-in machine WarpMaster features a new computer generation with a larger touchscreen, which enables simpler and faster operation. The new operating unit also has a remote support capability. Telemaintenance can thus be carried out via modem - for customer service in real time.
The diverse Groz-Beckert heald frame assortment has been enhanced by the ALtop® heald frame with a 140mm aluminium profile. Its sturdy, high-performance corner connection using steel supports requires no plastic components and thus reduces wear. The patented technology of the ALtop® 140 is also offered with a newly-designed intermediate strut. This is clamped from steel to steel, and no longer to the aluminium profile. The result is far longer service life for the heald frame.
Groz-Beckert looks forward to discussing topics for the future of weaving together with you at the ITMA in Barcelona. If you have any queries or suggestions at this point, please feel free to contact the experts from Groz-Beckert.
