Among other things, visitors can observe the Famacont PMC-15 thread density measurement 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.

“The detected deviation of the thread density from the nominal value is used to fully automatically regulate the over-feed during the pinning process on the tenter,” explains Matthias Wulbeck, Area Sales Manager, Mahlo.

For measurement, the Famacont PMC 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. Depending on the fabric speed and fabric type, the opto-electronic TK sensor can detect up to 220 threads/cm, the camera sensors CK and CK HF up to 270 threads/cm depending on the design. The special FFT software analyses the images with precision and, in addition, allows determining the weight of the product directly.

Solutions for straightening and process control

Also will be displayed, 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.

Mahlo’s range not only includes solutions for straightening distorted fabrics, but also for controlling the basis weight with beta or x-ray technology, the thickness with laser and shadowing, the moisture with infrared or microwave, as well as air permeability. With all sensors, high measurement accuracy is pivotal for an optimal measurement result.
