Mahlo presentation at Spunlace Nonwoven Symposium in Jiangyin
That the Chinese market for nonwoves has explodes over the last several years is not a secret anymore. There is hardly an industrial branch that is not dependent on products made of the versatile fiber, no matter if it’s the hygiene sector, the automotive or the construction industry. In order to be always up-to-date on the technical developments, the China Nonwoven Association organizes a seminar for Spunlace Nonwoven every year. Mahlo’s China Representative Frank Fei also had the chance to transmit his profound expertise to the expert audience.
More than 230 visitors responded to the invitation to Jiangyin City in the Jiangsu province to exchange and collect new knowledge. Among the participants were the organization’s responsible persons, managing directors and technical leaders from nonwoven manufacturers, R&D people in and equipment providers. For them, Frank Fei presented in detail the sensor Infrascope NIR for measuring basis weight, moisture and fiber content from the wide product range of Mahlo quality measurement system Qualiscan QMS-12. The sensor measures the reflection on infrared energy and determines the requested parameters. It can simultaneously measure two values and is suitable for many materials. Due to a very high spectral resolution, the sensor can distinguish between components with very similar IR absorption. And all that works without the use of radioactive isotopes. In addition to that, Fei compared the results of a basis weight measurement on Polypropylene Nonwoven with beta-radiation and NIR. Furthermore, the expert presented how one can improve product quality and lower costs at the same time.
The highly interested audience engaged in a lively discussion afterwards and many seized the chance to talk about how the spunlace nonwoven production in China can be promoted further.
