Along with all kinds of general information, constantly updated films and numerous brochures, the "yarn gauge converter" tool is a part of the free myGrozBeckert basic app.
All other functions can be further enhanced at any time using the additional "Toolbox" app. Activation of the entire Toolbox costs a mere one-off charge of 2.39 Euro. There are no other obligations.
Functions of the Toolbox
Conversion of fibre gauges
Whether dtex, den, tex or micron: regardless of the type of fibre you can easily convert fibre gauges into other units of measurement.
Deciding on the penetration depth
Working part cross-section of the needle, barb configuration, barb distance on the needle, distance from tip to the first barb: the information you provide serves as a basis for determining just the right penetration depth of the needle.
Selecting production parameters
To decide on the ideal penetration density all you have to do is enter the needle density of your machine per cm – plus two random values from either stroke rate, penetration density and feed rate per stroke.
