2/3/2009 - Complete Collection of Mattress Machinery at Interzum


Global Systems Group® (GSG) will be exhibiting their extensive line of mattress machinery brands at Interzum Furniture Fair, May 13-16. The bi-annual event in Köln, Germany remains one of the world’s premier showcases for innovative furniture machinery and GSG can be found in Hall 9.1.

Gribetz International will display its newest multi-needle chainstitch quilt machine, the Paragon M+. This is the world’s fastest three bar multi-needle quilter, and the new Posi-Trim™ thread control system eliminates Tack & Jump tails from the topside of quilt panels. Attendees can learn of ten other new features that make this more productive and cost-efficient than any previous Gribetz quilter.

Porter International®, Gateway Systems and Nähtec will also be displaying sewing systems that are vital to mattress manufacturers. Among the Gateway Systems equipment will be the GS-15 flat goods cutter. The machine to be displayed is capable of automatically cutting stretch fabric materials popular in European mattress markets. Nähtec will be demonstrating new specialty that makes production of borders, handles and zipper applications easier and improves finished quality.

Global Systems Group will share booth space with European partners Merello, Teknomac, KSM and KSL. These companies will exhibit mattress machines for packaging, handle systems, automated glue line systems and more related mattress production equipment.

Vertex Fasteners®, another Leggett & Platt company, will display bedding manufacturing staples, staple guns and related fastening equipment.
