On March 30, 2022, Groz-Beckert opened its first showroom in India – in the emerging weaving market in Ichalkaranji. The highlight of the weaving showroom is the new fully automatic WarpMasterPlus drawing-in machine. KnotMaster series knotting machines and accessories from the weaving preparation portfolio are also available for training, testing and demonstrations.
The WarpMasterPlus is the latest generation of fully automatic drawing-in machines. Its system was completely redeveloped from the ground up. With this machine generation, Groz-Beckert KG, Albstadt/Germany, continues to rely on the globally proven drawing-in concept, which takes place via a single bobbin. Further advantages include optimal flexibility combined with maximum performance and minimal setup requirements, as well as problem-free drawing in of critical warp yarns. In addition, the number of cycles has been increased and functions such as pre-setting drop-wire magazines and CNC axes for adjusting the heald length have been added.
The new generation retains the established WarpMaster concept to date: This includes the minimal training requirements for operating and maintenance personnel and the very easy operation thanks to sensors and video support. This enables people without prior knowledge of drawing-in to operate the machine quickly and reliably. The company is thus countering the increasing shortage of skilled workers in the industry.
