Mahlo, a leading manufacturer of measuring, control and automation systems, will present the latest developments in the field of quality measurement on running webs at SINCE, Asia’s largest trade fair for nonwovens, which takes place from 11-13 December 2019.

“Nonwovens production is also becoming increasingly important in China and throughout Asia,” said Mahlo's China representative Frank Fei. “We want to support the manufacturers in optimizing their production processes and thus also the end product.”

Together with his colleagues, Mr Fei will present the product range of the German mechanical engineering company. The focus is on the Qualiscan QMS quality measurement system. The modular system, which also comprises sensors and measuring frames, measures, records and controls critical parameters such as basis weight, moisture content or layer thickness over the entire fabric width.

Depending on the application and task, different measuring methods are used. The choice includes near-infrared measurement, white light interference or X-ray and beta radiation. Thanks to this broad portfolio, Mahlo offers tailor-made solutions for almost all requirements, the manufacturer reports.

For Mr Fei, the advantages of quality control are obvious: “If critical parameters are systematically controlled and regulated, this results in a higher fabric quality.” This means fewer rejects and less consumption of raw materials. This is designed to not only save time but also money for the customers.

Mahlo belongs to the leading manufacturers of measuring, control and automation systems for the textile and finishing industry, as well as the coating, film and paper sector. Mahlo is located in Saal on the Danube in lower Bavaria but operates worldwide, with five branch offices in Italy, Belgium, Spain, China and the US serving as support stations for the key markets.
