Groz-Beckert provides the nonwovens industry with manufacturing solutions using any fiber material – whether wood fiber, animal fiber, natural fiber, mineral fiber or synthetic fiber. Therefore, unequaled application know-how concerning raw material but also carding and needling is very important. Customer projects can be performed on machinery of leading manufacturers in Groz-Beckert’s Technical Center Felting. State-of-the-art machinery featuring different variation options like pitches, condensing rollers, etc. can be booked as and if needed. A complete needle range with approx. 2000 types is available to assure no limits when it comes to testing series. The results are highly reliable due to industry-oriented working widths of all components of the production line.
