Greetings from your GSG staff

Global Systems Group had a crew from nearly every region of the world on hand to meet with our worldwide customer base at ISPA Expo 2010. Everyone was kept busy meeting with many old colleagues as well as introducing themselves to some new faces too.

If you were unable to attend and would like updated on all the new equipment please contact your GSG representative as soon as you can.

The staff of Global Systems Group looks forward to meeting with you at the next opportunity.

Return to home.

The show is over: now the real work begins!

Thank you for an overwhelmingly successful ISPA Expo 2010. We anticipated a good response to our new mattress machines, but customer reactions exceeded all our expectations. Thanks again for the great show.

The hall floor is now empty, but GSG mattress machinery is ready to fill factory floors now. If you have more questions about the equipment we displayed or still need to see other options, please contact your GSG salesman for assistance.

DST-60 quilt panel de-stacker

For instance, did you get a chance to see a demonstration of our DST-60, de-stacker? This machine automatically lifts mattress panels into place for flanging or serging following the panel cutting operation. It reduces non-value added touches by the flange operator by positioning the panel into place when the flanger is ready for the next panel.

You're always welcome to request more info through our GSG website form as well.

Gribetz debuts dedicated border quilter at ISPA Expo

This dedicated border quilt machine, from Gribetz International, was a popular topic at the ISPA Expo. This quilt machine's footprint is about half the size of a typical mattress panel quilter.

Border Quilt Machine

The Border Quilter has incorporated slitter blades on the exit side and slit border material is collected on a wind up roll. This works well as a part of a mattress border work cell as displayed in GSG booth 2625. This machine is capable of producing enough border material to match two mattress top panel quilt machines, depending of pattern selection.

This allows mattress manufacturers to keep full size quilters dedicated to producing top panels while this machine churns out complementing border material.

Porter International introduces new vertical handle system at ISPA EXPO

I'm finally back in the office and pleased to share more info about the ISPA EXPO 2010. Global Systems Group had a great show and we thank all of you who could join us in Charlotte, and we look forward to sharing our new equipment with those of you who could not attend.

Vertical Handle Machine

This highly affordable Porter vertical handle system works in conjunction with the strap maker and cutter system shown separately. This efficient handle machine easily adds handles to mattress borders in the border work cell.

This efficient method is dependable and easy to operate. The strong handle sewing secures the vertical handles to the edges of the border material.

Porter International has once again provided the mattress industry with an efficient, reliable system for another popular application.

Contact your GSG rep to learn more about this border work cell.

Good morning Day 2 at ISPA Expo

Good morning from the GSG booth on Day 2 of ISPA Expo.

Yesterday, this new Porter International PALS 2000 automated label machine saw a lot of attention. It has similar sewing technology used in more familiar PALS 3000 mattress panel auto-labeler.

The PALS 2000 is designed for the growing popularity of applying mattress labels to the borders. The high speed automation allows the operator to multi-task on other work while the PALS 2000 sews on the label.

I'll share more info on new GSG mattress machines throughout the show.

They are coming from around the world to the GSG booth at ISPA Expo

Displaying and demonstrating our mattress machinery from our facilities around the world is always quite a logistical feat. GSG has networked the best machinery manufacturers available in most world regions to provide you with the best mattress machinery selection.

Global Systems Group does not simply order machines from other international manufacturers and rebrand them once we receive shipment. We engineer the equipment, build it and service it to ensure the quality control initiatives are in place every step of the way. It takes more effort on our part, but most mattress manufacturers we deal appreciate the trusted quality this establishes.

Do you have a preference? Do you feel there is a noticable difference between machine products built in the USA or overseas?

Please comment below so we know...

Extreme convention center hall makeover...

GSG is in the process of moving in for the week. It's a frantic, hectic pace to move ALL these machines in such a short time, but by opening day, March 3, it will look like they have been settled into place for weeks.

Once you're here, take your time and enjoy the show - the frantic work will be behind us, and GSG will be eager to share some time with you. There is a lot of new equipment to become aquainted with, but you can be sure that the "not so new" faces in the GSG booth will be glad to walk through it with you.

See you at the show - remember, Booth 2625.

PS - pack a coat, it's been chilly in Charlotte thus far!

Trick out your flanger - we suggest flames!

Porter Internatinal has the fastest, most powerful flanger in the world: the PFM-4000 flange machine.

The awesome flanging capabilities are usually enough to make it stand out in a crowd, but we felt a machine like this deserved a paint job more fitting of it's hot rod performance. It is the muscle car of flange machines and you can see it run LIVE at Booth 2625 at ISPA EXPO!

If you feel the same way about your own Porter PFM-4000, you may want to try it yourself. Here's how to create your own custom paint job...
  1. Strip all critical parts off the machine and start with the core housing parts.
  2. Mask off areas that expose moving parts and internal mechanisms (those are the best parts of the PFM-4000)
  3. Clean off any excess grime and give the parts a clean coat of primer. (It helps to mist on several light coats in every direction for an even layer.)
  4. We gave ours a metallic chrome undercoat, so highlight edges would really shine.
  5. A carefully sprayed layer of bright blue was sprayed in such a way that the final appearance would appear to fade from chrome to bluish-black to total black. Leave a fair amount of chrome layer exposed to make this gradation effect work. (It does not look like much right now, but it will be a much appreciated step in the end.)
  6. Finally a solid black layer was applied, careful not to spray too far into the areas reserved for the black-blue-chrome fade.
  7. That completes the painting on the main housing areas! Now for tricky flames...
  8. First, paint undercoat layers of yellows, reds and oranges. Keep in mind where you intend your flame patterns to end up.
  9. Apply a precut vinyl stencil and then cover the surface with black paint. This protects your flame colored oranges and reds from the black paint.
  10. Once you have adequate layers of black paint, peel off the flame stencils after the black paint dries.
  11. Finally give all parts a protective clear coat and assemble your extreme machine!

OK, that was fun, but there is a more productive way to improve a flanger: couple it with a motorized belt table. Porter has already thought of that - it's called the EST-4000. See it here, and see other great mattress machines at GSG booth 2625 at ISPA EXPO.

Gribetz technology is designed to improve your profitability

Built in technology of Gribetz quilters is designed to make mattress manufacturing more profitable for bedding producers. This is done with advanced features designed to increase throughput while reducing waste.

  • Save $1,000's by reducing waste in materials and labor* - Gribetz International's BatchMode/AutoSchedule software can save mattress manufacturers $10,000's each year in material waste reduction alone. The Gribetz Paragon quilters and ProME panel cutters can communicate with each other to determine the ideal place to temporarily halt production and allow for material crop outs based on product selections.

  • Save your spot, save that panel - Encoders on the Paragon quilters track pattern sewing movements so quilt panels can be recovered, rather than scrapped, if the sewing is unexpectedly interrupted.

  • Save time adjusting patterns on the machine - Using Gribetz pattern software, pattern shapes can be altered directly on the machine without creating new drawings or reloading from external pattern software programs.

These are just a few of the small details that provide big benefits for mattress manufacturers who choose Gribetz Paragon quilters. There are a lot more of these benefits and you can learn about them all at ISPA Expo 2010.

See these items demonstrated at GSG booth 2625, and learn more at FREE advanced training seminars we have scheduled for March 4 and March 5.

Sign up for FREE training seminars by emailing or contact your local GSG representative.

* Suggested savings are based on reasonable industry standards, but actual results may vary. Contact a GSG representative to determine estimated results for your specific needs.

GSG expands cell manufacturing systems at ISPA Expo 2010

(ISPA Expo 2008 work cell layout)

In 2008, GSG arranged the ISPA EXPO booth in a cell manufacturing configuration. This was very appealing for mattress manufacturers seeing which machines work together to form each work cell.

Cell manufacturing is gaining popularity in markets beyond bedding because it allows for greater product diversity and better lean practices that eliminate waste.

In response to this growing popularity, GSG has developed over a dozen new machines for work cells in various mattress plant functions.

Visit GSG in booth 2625 at ISPA Expo to see the latest additions to our work cell machinery collections.

GSG brings you versatile mattress machinery at ISPA EXPO

What is more important to you, mattress manufacturer; unique product styling or high volume production?

Some manufacturing companies are only concerned with cranking out their product en masse. As you know, furniture manufacturing is a blend of craftmanship and production volume.

Global Systems Group will be demonstrating several mattress machines that satisfy both sides of your manufacturing brain.
  • Gribetz will have a variety of mattress quilting and cutting equipment.
    • The Paragon M+ is a perfect example of the versatility that marries high style with high volume production.
  • Porter has always been on the forefront of technology to provide you with your primary needs. Once again, several new sewing machines will be demonstrated at ISPA Expo that shows you new methods and better processes.
  • We'll be bringing in specialty equipment from our European partners like Gateway Systems, Merello and Teknomac. This European perspective can provide you with some interesting concepts in your own plant.
Let us know what you prefer. Speed? Styling? Both? GSG has something for everyone. Add a comment below, so we understand your current needs.

Find your favorite flanger

Porter International makes one of the most popular mattress panel flange machines in the world - the PFM-4000.

The high throughput capabilities and durability makes it as productive as any flange machine in the bedding industry. Though the PFM-4000 is a great machine in itself, Porter International has combined the PFM-4000 flanger with other equipment to make it even more productive.

The ATA Flangemaster®, shown in the following video clip below shot at a previous ISPA EXPO, combines the PFM-4000 sew head with an air table and a robotic turning arm. This semi-automatic system can enable any operator to flange panels with ease and it frees them to multi-task on other nearby operations during this process.

Another recent modification to enhance flanging performance is the ErgoSmart 4000 belt table, equipped with a PFM-4000. Motorized belts, syncronized with the sew head, can easily turn the quilt panel after each side is flanged and discharge into an awaiting cart or work station when completed.

Effective flange machines are crucial to a mattress factory. Come to GSG booth 2625, at ISPA EXPO, to see the great values Porter International can offer for your next mattress flanger.

If you have another idea for the Porter PFM-4000 flanger, post a comment below...

All wrapped up in innovation?

Innovation may come in unusual forms and it often evolves into an unanticipated product. Best of all, innovation that proves beneficial has staying power. That's the case for Bubble Wrap, the popular packing material celebrating it's 50th anniversary this month.

"...Like many innovations, Bubble Wrap initially was conceived for an entirely different purpose. According to Aurichio, a New York City designer approached inventors Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding in the late 1950s with a proposal for creating textured wallpaper.

 That idea stalled, but the product the two men had created in a small lab in New Jersey found its niche when, according to company lore, Fielding was flying into Newark Airport and noticed the fluffy clouds that seemed to cushion the plane's descent..." - article at

Read more about Bubble Wrap's humble beginnings and unique appeal at this popular manufacturing website.

Global Systems Group knows a thing or two about innovation as well. Our companies have a combined history that far exceeds the age of Bubble Wrap and it's our innovation that keeps us moving ahead.

We'll be showing some of our popular wrapping solutions at ISPA EXPO.

Cinch-Loc™ for high speed pillow top bed production

Many veteran ISPA EXPO attendees may have enjoyed Bill Evans' helpful demonstration on building pillowtop mattresses, as in the video below. He shows you how to create an excellent mitered-corner pillow top bed with some great sewing systems from Porter International.

In 2010, Porter International will be demonstrating the fastest way to assemble a pillowtop with ruffled corners. Now you can have perfectly ruffled corners without precise marking and sewing or time-consuming build-up methods. One snug of the Cinch-Loc cord and you've got perfectly placed ruffled corners.

Cinch-Loc™ pillow top system* is the fastest way to build a pillow top bed - see for yourself at Booth 2625, in Charlotte.

(Of course if you still favor the mitered-corner pillowtops, Bill will be back in the booth at ISPA EXPO 2010, and he'd be glad to tell you how it's done.)

Look for the future of mattress machinery technology at ISPA EXPO 2010

If you ever had a machinery idea that could improve your factory productivity, but didn't know where to begin looking for the tools, ISPA EXPO is the place to start looking.

Put your mattress border style plans in motion

What's the big deal about a programmable border slitter, you say?

It's 2010. Today's market demands more diversity in your product choices. This requires more flexibility and better efficiency in the way you produce it.

That's where the Gribetz ProSlit™, a programmable border slitter, comes in. Fourteen circular blades can be programmed by desired position through the touchscreen control panel.

The computerized machine will move each blade into precise location in a matter of seconds. This enables a mattress manufacturer to store and change border cut selections quickly and effectively. This minimizes labor and downtime and improves JIT manufacturing capabilities.

Play this video snippet below to see the ProSlit
reposition 4 blades in under 40 seconds!

A visit to most showrooms at recent furniture Market events will prove border styling has become an attractive way to differentiate product lines. The ProSlit's patent pending technology can make your border cell operation more efficient than ever.

The fully guarded Gribetz ProSlit is also the SAFEST border slitter available. Blades are automatically moved and sharpened by the machine itself, so no personnel is at risk during these operations.

You can only see a programmable border slitter in the GSG booth 2625, so come by for a demo at ISPA EXPO 2010.

It's time to start booking travel arrangements for attending the ISPA EXPO, in March. Hopefully you are already planning to attend, but if you're not take a look at this blog to see if it may be worth your time after all.

The trade show industry cites these standard reasons for attending trade shows:
  1. See new industry products
  2. Network with collegues
  3. Get fresh business ideas
We know there are other reasons you may want to attend ISPA EXPO 2010 specifically:
  1. There has been tremendous changes in the mattress industry since the last EXPO. This will be a good point to collectively assess your own future.
  2. GSG has nearly a half-dozen innovative, new machines to demo.
  3. GSG will have FREE advanced training seminars that can improve your business as soon as you return from the show.
You probably have reasons of your own and we encourage you to share them so we can better provide a better show experience for you.
