The processing of technical textiles into a finished end product has been an important area of application for the sewing industry for many years now. Here, the special materials and diverse material combinations present a major challenge for sewing machine needles. The Special Application Needle SAN® 5 by Groz-Beckert has already proven itself in these specialized applications. Since requirements placed on processing as well as on needles are steadily rising, Groz-Beckert has redesigned the SAN® 5 needle and developed it into the sewing machine needle for technical textiles of the second generation: the Special Application Needle SAN® 5.2.
Technical textiles include all textile-based products produced primarily for their technical and functional properties, and mainly used for commercial or industrial products. Technical textiles thus include ropes, tarpaulins and textile products for functional and protective clothing. The broad field of technical textiles can be subdivided into the following twelve areas:
The areas Mobiltech, Indutech and Sporttech are the three top-selling sub-areas in technical textiles worldwide. But taken as a whole, the technical textiles market is characterized by steady growth and, especially, a high pace of innovation – driven by the continuous conquest of new application areas and the development of new manufacturing processes.
All of this prompted Groz-Beckert to further develop the SAN® 5 Special Application Needle, used successfully for several years, in order to meet new challenges in the future.
With the Special Application Needle SAN® 5.2 – the sewing machine needle for technical textiles in the second generation – Groz-Beckert has provided the answer to growing demand in the production of technical-textile products. The needle is even more stable, enables loop pick-up, and is ideally suited to multi-directional sewing operations:
Just like the technical textiles industry, Groz-Beckert is also on a constant course toward growth and innovation. Whether that involves improvement of its own production methods or development and improvement of products for the entire textile value chain, Groz-Beckert, with its extensive and technically sophisticated production program, always ensures you remain successfully ahead of the competition.
