3/1/2011 - See it all in the GSG booth at Interzum

Global Systems Group® will occupy one of largest spaces at Interzum 2011, in Köln, Germany, demonstrating their wide array of mattress machinery. See it all in booth C-020, in Hall 9.1, May 25 - 28.


Mattress factory production methods are not the same as it was only a few, short years ago. Lean manufacturing, Kaizen® methods, and work cell manufacturing are replacing traditional large batch manufacturing styles to improve efficiencies in response to new profitability concerns. New equipment from GSG has been designed to satisfy all your current needs.


New machinery scheduled to be introduced at the show include:



See other key mattress machinery like the following:


Gribetz International® will be showing their top multi-needle quilt machines for manufacturers still desiring high speed production AND versatile product changes. For those that still desire the ultimate in versatile production freedom, Gribetz will demonstrate the industry’s fastest and most versatile quilters – the B-45™ border quilter, Reliance® M4, Paragon M+®, and Axiom®.


Porter International®

Porter will host a wide selection of their popular equipment like the 3-in-1 GPT-1000AP ruffler, FPT-1000 Faux Pillowtop machine, and PFM-4000 flanger. Porter will also display the new PCL-1000, Cinch-loc® Pillowtop machine used to easily create ruffled pillowtops with the pull of a drawstring.



Recently acquired Galkin Automated Products will be debuting on the GSG stand. Galkin will demonstrate its widely popular belt-driven flanger, the X-5 High Lift Flanger. For the first time at Interzum, the belt-driven X-5 will operate side-by-side with Porter’s “walking foot” flanger, the PFM-4000, so you can better compare two of the world’s most popular flangers. Also see an updated Semi-automatic EFS-100 serger/flanger with automated turning arm and automatic measure, as well as other popular sew room equipment.


Gateway Systems®

The Mattress Master Elite™ is the latest addition to the internationally admired semi-automatic tape edge machines from Gateway. This is the only machine in its class that uses an engineered and optimized curved turning arm design for a smooth motion turning the mattress during taping operation. Gateway Systems will also display other cutting and sewing equipment popular throughout the world.



There is a new interest in zippers throughout the mattress industry and Nähtec has new machines for the task. Two new systems from Nähtec, NC 1009-5 and NC 2030 will demonstrate their proven abilities to provide unique specialized mattress machines. Nähtec also plans to share a newly redesigned model of the KL 222 panel cutter with panel automatic cut, trim and sew capabilities behind a Gribetz quilter.


Merello and Teknomac

Our European partners, Merello Ingenerios and Teknomac, will be sharing the stand with GSG. Merello has one of the industry’s most popular mattress packaging systems, the ME-104 and the fastest wrapper on the market. Don’t miss this! Merello also has several other packaging solutions for other bedding products. Teknomac is known for another style of packaging machine; their TK306A Roll Pack machine. Teknomac will display specialized mattress equipment and a new single-needle quilt machine, called the Motif™.
