Specific needs of composite production
The traversing quality control system determines crucial parameters such as basis weight, density, thickness or coating add-on. Knowing the exact figures of the single composite materials is a great advantage for every composite producer. It helps not only to improve the products’ quality but also to save energy and costs. As a modular system consisting of multiple sensors and scanners, the Qualiscan QMS can be tailored to individual needs and tasks. For the challenges of composite production, Mahlo has a specialist in its portfolio. The beta sensor Gravimat DFI measures the basis weight and is unaffected by uneven web – often a problem with composites. It produces precise measuring results, regardless whether the degrees of drying, density or thickness change. The sensor traverses along the running product web without interruption and distributes the incoming measuring rays to different areas of the detector surface by means of a multi-channel receiver. Because of the exact offsetting of the measuring values the actual basis weight signal is maintained unchanged, regardless of the position of the product web in the measuring gap.
