The DOMOTEX in Hanover that ended on 17 January was one of the most successful ever. The leading international trade fair for carpeting and floor coverings is a generator of ideas for business, fashion and innovation, a role confirmed by the 1,409 exhibitors from 60 countries and a contingent of quality international visitors - about 70% came from abroad. Groz-Beckert was also present at this major fair.
Creativity, cutting-edge materials and intelligent solutions were on display as the DOMOTEX showed off the sector's latest trends: in addition to standard structured surfaces and patterns, carpets with exceptionally soft surfaces for the home and carpet tiles for professional use continue to enjoy popularity.
To produce soft-as-silk carpet surfaces, soft-fiber yarns with extremely fine single filaments (low DPF yarns) are used. These soft-fiber yarns place high demands on the cutting performance of tufting tools ─ standard tools are not up to the task. Groz-Beckert presented the appropriate customized solutions.
Groz-Beckert displayed the Cut Pile Looper with Loop Control®.for working with soft-fiber yarns at the DOMOTEX. The Loop Control® option securely holds each loop in the cutting area and cuts it in one stroke. The result is a uniform rug surface.
The market segment "carpet tiles" is again trending upwards after the years prior to 2017. At the DOMOTEX Groz-Beckert presented its proven tufting system for the manufacture of carpet tiles. The synchronized components achieve a uniform fabric appearance and moreover provide one-of-a-kind price/performance ratio.
