Mahlo is satisfied with CINTE participation
From September 4 to 6, Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG showcases at CINTE Techtextil in China. At the end, the leading German manufacturer of quality measurement systems, process control and weft straighteners is happy with the show’s outcome. “The CINTE might not be one of the biggest fairs in its sector but the quality of its visitors and exhibitors is very high, especially in the nonwoven area”, says Clemens Kaplan, Area Sales Manager East Asia at Mahlo.
The in-depth conversations, which Kaplan as well as China Representative Frank Fei and its team held, revolved around the possibilities of a more efficient and high-quality production and therefore around the Mahlo Qualiscan QMS-12. The quality measurement system can depended on the type of sensor record important parameters such as basis weight, thickness and moisture. Up to five sensors that traverse on sturdy scanners continuously collect data and report them to the interface. That way, nonwoven and technical textile producers can check and control their product specifications at any time. Due to the broad portfolio of sensors, almost every requirement can be covered during the quality-conscious production of technical textiles and nonwovens.
Especially the NIR sensor based on infrared technology appeals to nonwoven producers because it can measure the two most important parameters basis weight and moisture at the same time. In addition to that, importing the NIR is way easier compared to beta or x-ray sensors because it does not emit harmful radiation and is therefore not subject to radiation protection.
“The nonwoven industry in China is market with huge opportunities”, says Kaplan. The state shows immense growth and ambitious plans in this sector. The overall production of technical textiles and nonwovens is set to be more than 22 million tons and 30 per cent of global production in the year 2020.
