Groz Beckert Offers New Needles, Holder

Groz-Beckert KG, Germany, has introduced three new sewing machine needles to address problems seen in several different sewing applications, as well as a new needle holder.

The GB 134 ZZ needle system, designed for zigzag applications, is the result of an examination of the most popular zigzag sewing needle systems as they relate to today’s sewing development and production. The new needle system offers reliable stitching and allows a high needle throw using all popular machine concepts, the company reports.

Groz Beckert also has re-engineered its GB SAN® 10 needle to allow it to process finer materials including fine knits and microfiber fabrics than previously, and also to process new-style yarns. According to the company, the needle sews more uniform seams, treats the processed fabric more gently and offers higher productivity than the previous version.

The GB SAN® 12 is a special application needle for two-needle machines used to process leather for upholstery, seat production and automotive interiors. The company reports the left- and right-hand needles work in tandem to make optically identical stitch lines.

The company has developed the Gebeswitch needle holder to quickly and reliably change needles from one size to another on medium- and heavy-duty step stitching machines with vertical loopers. Such machines are used to produce high-quality automotive interior fittings and seats. The new holder maintains a constant scarf position regardless of needle size; and requires no machine adjustments other than changing the needle, setting the size at the Gebeswitch and rethreading.
