The INH Quality Management (Ideal Needle Handling) that has been developed and patented by Groz-Beckert ensures the trouble-free and time-saving handling of broken and damaged sewing machine needles. The INH-process ensures that different operating procedures set out by brand owners are adhered to by using a standardized procedure, and also supports you in meeting other requirements such as compliance with environmental principles and increasing productivity.
The main idea of INH is to replace the needle exchange station by a needle dispensing trolley that – in case of a needle breakage – moves to the sewing machine in order to do the complete needle exchange there. The documentation about the needle breakage can be done physically (by sticking the broken needle parts onto a special documentation sheet) or digitally. For the digital way, which is known as Smart INH, Groz-Beckert has developed a mobile app called INH@site as well as a software called INH@office. When using Smart INH, the broken needle parts are photographed with the mobile app INH@site that runs on a tablet-PC that is fixed at the trolley. Afterwards, the pictures are digitally stored. Thus, the needles can be disposed of immediately and in an eco-friendly way.
Besides the trolley, the INH Quality Management offers other elements and tools that have all been created by Groz-Beckert especially for this purpose. They are all of highest quality and fulfill ergonomic aspects.
