In the textile world trends undergo extreme change. What is modern today might be gone and forgotten tomorrow. Not only sections, but fabrics and manufacturing techniques also depend on this type of continuous change. The few constants in the sector thus carry even more weight. Among them has been, for years, the Techtextil in Frankfurt, Germany. The leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens presented the entire spectrum of potential applications for textile technologies from 9 to 12 May, 2017. Of course, Groz-Beckert did its part and was represented with a booth at the highly-visited trade fair.
