The textile industry demands needles with high fatigue strength and high wear resistance. UHB 20MC1 latch needle steel has been developed in close co-operation with leading needle manufacturers.
It is characterized by a high degree of purity, a uniform fine grained structure and ensuring reliability in needle manufacture and good durability after hardening. The needle strip steel has close thickness tolerances to ensure the cross-sectional shape and the needle function.
Additional steel grades for other products in the textile industry such as sinkers, springs, wear parts etc. are available on request.
Thickness: 0.10 mm – 1.60 mm
Width: 6 mm – 320 mm
