Home About Menzel Machinery
Welcome to the Menzel USA web page

We were a "web site" long before computers came in vogue. As long ago as 1965, we introduced large roll batching to the United States. And we have been on a roll ever since, turning out a wide variety of web handling and finishing equipment for all kinds of industries.


Speaking of computers, we have the very best CAD/CAM design system, along with a superb manufacturing facility. And we make sure that you are involved in your products development through every step of the process, from creation to completion.

Incidentally, our "web site" , the building you see here, has doubled in size three times.

So we must be doing something right. And we would love to do that something for you.




Menzel headquarters, our fully equipped, state-of-the art facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina has doubled and re-doubled in size since 1965



The Menzel A-Frame...

Often imitated, never duplicated

It was 1965 when Menzel introduced the first large roll batching system to the United States textile industry. This material handling system allows manufacturers to wind very large rolls of fabric onto fixed cores on portable carriages, resulting in several time and cost saving benefits.

For instance, longer continuous runs are achieved, which lead to less cutting and sewing, in turn lowering fabric waste and production costs. With fewer transports necessary, due to larger roll capacities up to 10,000 yards, manpower is significantly reduced. And because the fabric remains untouched during the manufacturing and transportation process, the risk of damage is lowered while quality is enhanced.


Not simply an apparatus for winding and unwinding E-mail

The A-Frame is another example of the impact of German technology on U.S. industry. Its success and acceptance has become synonymous with Menzel. But the A-Frame is not simply an apparatus for winding and unwinding fabric. It is a complete, mobile material handing, transportation and storage system. From the basic A-Frame, custom-made in a variety of sizes, to the transport dollys and portable carriages, this system offers versatility, as well as expandability.


The carriages handle rolls up to 40" in diameter, which can be stacked four high for convenient storage.



The A-Frame system has helped textile industry manufacturers reduce material defects while improving the efficiency of their entire operation. Quite simply, Menzel has set the standard by which other portable material handling systems are measured.
The A-Frame has also spawned the development of a complete line of equipment for web unwinding, accumulating, guiding, slitting, and winding. In addition, it has triggered a diverse line of entrance and exit machinery for all types of finishing, dyeing, and print ranges, as well as batching and final inspection stations. And due to its ease and efficiency, the Menzel product line has been adapted by the great majority of textile industry manufacturers since its introduction in the mid-sixties.
Menzel has since utilized their design expertise to develop equipment for a variety of industries other than textiles, as shown in the following chart:



Customer Satisfaction... From Concept to Completion E-mail

Customer satisfaction cannot be achieved with people alone. Knowing this, Menzel has armed their engineers, technicians, and manufacturing personnel with technologically advanced equipment in order to meet the company's high quality standards.


Our CAD/CAM system offers a great deal of assistance when taking ideas from concept to completion. With the addition of Voice CAD, we have improved performance while lowering engineering costs. The computer-generated drawings then go to our fully-equipped manufacturing facilities where a complete in-house shop handles all machining and fabrication requirements to insure the highest quality and consistency. Of prime importance is that every piece of Menzel equipment is built structurally sound from top grade, heavy gauge steel.


Utilizing customer input to meet customer needs PDF Print E-mail

When it comes to custom designing a piece of machinery, Menzel's foremost concern is customer satisfaction. We accomplish this by involving the client throughout the entire design, manufacturing, and testing process.


An extremely competent engineering staff, plus state-of-the-art equipment, allows Menzel to handle nearly any web handling or finishing requirement and has bolstered our reputation as problem-solvers. From singeing, washing and bleaching textiles and nonwovens to splicing cord and conveyor belt fabrics, Menzel has the knowledge and experience to meet or exceed your needs.
