Grob Horgen Highlights New Developments

Switzerland-based Grob Horgen AG has introduced FERmono® heddle frames, and has developed a new
heddle dampening system and new thread eye size.

Suitable for heavy frame loads, the 140-millimeter (mm)-high stainless-steel frame staves of
the FERmono heddle frames were designed with an optimum ratio of stiffness to weight.

According to Grob Horgen, the new dampening system reduces the wear of heddle end loops and
carrying rods by decreasing heddle vibration to a minimum.

In addition, the company claims a new thread eye size of 6.5 by 2.5 mm can guide a wide
variety of warp yarns effectively and smoothly.
