eurolaser and Georg + Otto Friedrich

Georg + Otto Friedrich and the Lueneburg-based manufacturer of laser cutting systems, eurolaser, together, they support the domestic production of facial masks.

‘Our polyester fabrics, which we recommend for the production of face shields, are generally washable at 60 degrees. Even washing at 90 degrees and sterilising at 75 degrees is possible’, says CEO of GOF Mr. Lothar Vorbeck. ‘And in contrast to natural products, the knitted polyester fabric is more hygienic.’

The material also offers other excellent advantages: With automatic cutting devices, the mask can directly be cut, including the holding straps.This makes assembly unnecessary and thus, saves another further working step.

‘Consequently, mask manufacturers can save even more time in production’, adds the GOF managing director. ‘As far as the wear comfort of our fabrics is concerned’, continues Vorbeck, ‘they have been tested and meet the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100, product class 2, which certifies skin contact.

Untreated articles that are made from our fabrics even meet product class I, i.e. skin contact for babys. Besides, we are already successfully applying three of our textiles on the market for mouth-nose covers: DecoTex, Brush and Biflex.’

‘The conveyor machines from eurolaser for the cutting of textile materials ensure excellent cutting edges of the polyester materials from GOF. The laser welds the edges and thus, prevents fraying. Compared to mechanical cutting methods, laser cutting saves many working steps in further processing’, explains CEO of GOF, Mr. Vorbeck. ‘We have been able to verify this in extensive tests in recent days.’

We produce at three locations, exclusively in Germany. For us “Made in Germany” is more than just a hint about the location – it is a performance commitment. And we can be judged on this promise.

Uncompromising product quality requires optimal manufacturing processes. At Friedrich, a well elaborated workflow system ensures consistently reproducible quality standards. Each individual product can be tracked with a coded label, from the finishing plant to the warp knitting machine and filament. All textile-relevant tests can be carried out either in our in-house laboratory or by independent, external testing institutes. In this way, we ensure that our customers receive the highly quality, which they expect.

We focus on our core competences and work with the most capable and long term cooperation partners in every product area. High customer loyalty and long-term business relationships as well as the development of our company show us that we are on the right way.
