Mahlo to participate in CINTE Techtextil expo in Shanghai
Along with its Chinese representative, Frank Fei, Mahlo will discuss about the latest developments in measuring and controlling of quality critical parameters within the running web. The main attraction at the Mahlo booth will be the web gauging system Qualiscan QMS-12.
The tool gauges parameters such as basis weight, thickness or moisture across the entire width. To achieve this, up to five sensors are traversing simultaneously on sturdy scanners, constantly collecting data and transmit them to the interface. In use are radioactive sources as well as infrared, laser, microwaves, and air permeability sensors.
CINTE will also focus on Mahlo’s infrared sensor Infrascope NIR. Particularly for nonwoven producers in the spun lace industry – an emerging sector in Asia – the sensor is the ideal tool. It measures the absorption of infrared energy while identifying basis weight and moisture at the same time. Those important parameters can be measured and controlled precisely in a spun lace unit. Due to a very high spectral resolution, the sensor can distinguish between components with very similar IR absorption. This capability allows the highly selective individual measurement of a specific component or layer in the web without interference from other components. And all without the use of radioactive isotopes. With the Qualiscan QMS, not only the product quality is improved but also raw materials can be saved.
Visitors at the Mahlo booth can also find out more on possibilities for web gauging as well as technologies for straightening of warps in knitted and woven fabrics. (GK)
