Mahlo: Measuring and controlling of technical textiles
Among other things, visitors can observe the Famacont PMC-15 in live operation. The system measures the thread or knit density by means of a sensor on the running web and compares it with the nominal value stored in the recipe data management. For measurement, it uses continuous opto-electronic scanning with transmitted or incident light or imaging with a camera. Its special feature: the system can display weft and warp threads. The special FFT software analyses the images with precision and allows determining the weight of the product directly.
Also on display is a model of the Orthopac CRVMC-12 automatic straightener – a specialist for technical textiles. Due to its very solid construction, the machine with its modular design allows large working widths of up to 5,400 mm with high tensile stress at the same time. However, Mahlo's range not only includes solutions for straightening distorted fabrics, but also for controlling important production parameters with different measuring methods. The measured data are the base for an automatic process control and thus the prerequisite for a perfect web with narrow tolerance.
