In Dalton, Georgia, the carpet capital of the world, Floor Tek was held from October 18–20, 2016. The fair for floor coverings, machine manufacturers, suppliers and service providers is known as a driving force in the industry. Groz-Beckert was also present at this important fair, introducing concepts such as the new Cut Pile Looper with Loop Control®.
Under the slogan "Be part of the Flooring Revolution", FloorTek opened its doors to show off what's trending in the carpet industry.
A trend toward supersoft surfaces can be "felt" in almost all carpeting applications. However, the special properties of the soft-fiber yarns (low DPF) used place new and significantly higher demands on tufting tools. To meet them, Groz-Beckert at the FloorTek displayed the Cut Pile Looper with Loop Control®, a tool which secures each complete loop within the cutting area and cuts them cyclically. The result is a uniform, luxuriously soft and high quality carpet texture.
Visitors also showed a keen interest in the Groz-Beckert tufting system, consisting of tufting needle, gripping device, tufting knife and reed finger. Within the system, all components work in harmony to produce a uniform fabric appearance with an unrivaled cost-performance ratio.
