Complete control from Mahlo

Sensitive systems for keeping the weft straight and eliminating distortions.

Mahlo, based in Saal, Germany, will present its latest generation Orthopac RVMC-15 weft straightening and Qualiscan QMS-12 quality measuring systems at the ITMA ASIA + CITME exhibition from June 12-16, 2021 in Shanghai.

The straightener’s opto-electronic scanning for distortion detection, with an oscillating lens and a newly revised digital signal processor (DSP), is one of the most sensitive and versatile system on the market. Arranged on a carrier bridge, several of its sensors are evenly distributed across the width of the fabric being processed, detecting the position of the weft yarn simultaneously at different points.

The Qualiscan detects and analyzes the angular position of weft yarns, stitches or tufting rows and an intelligent self-optimising control algorithm ensures that all fabric distortions are removed reliably in the process. Even the most complicated fabric structures pose no problem. Scanning systems for special fabric structures are available as an alternative to standard scanning and even the warp correction of patterned fabrics – lace, jacquard, print, terry cloth etc. –can be carried out without any problems.

Also contributing to high-quality textile production and finishing is Mahlo’s Famacont PMC for controlling weft and stitch course density. The Famacont PMC-15 uses a sensor to measure yarn or stitch density and compares it with a target value stored in the recipe data management system. The detected deviation of the yarn density from the target value is used to fully automatically regulate the leading during the needling process on the stenter frame.

Mahlo specialists will also be on hand to explain the mPilot control room software and the mLog data analysis tool which allows measurement data to be stored, logged and evaluated.
