Mahlo showcases straightening and process control systems at EXINTEX2018 ( 02.10 -05.10 )


Mahlo showcases straightening and process control systems at Exintex

No matter of textile, knitwear or leather: at the Exintex show in Mexico all important branches of the textile industry will come together from 2 to 5 October. The competent audience from all around the world can gather information from Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG at booth 706-711 on how they can get the most out of their production processes.

Area Sales Manager Miguel Lessel, who welcomes visitors at the joint booth with Blutec and Tecnoeuropa, knows the special challenges for the Central American market well: “The climate for textile producers has not always been friendly. Especially the cheaper competition from Asia has bothered the sector.” But for the past several years one could see an upward trend. “To pull ahead of the competitors, producers strive to be more efficient and quality oriented. 

Mahlo offers the right solutions to fulfill these goals. The automatic weft straightener Orthopac RVMC-15 detects and eliminates warping on running web with speeds up to 250 meter per minute. For production that means less rejects and therefore lower costs. End user in return gets high-quality products. Contributing to that is also the Famacont PMC for control of weft thread and course density. People interested can hear all about the operating principle with the help of a demo tower and different web samples at the Mahlo booth. Another big topic at Exintex is process control. The modular system Optipac VMC optimizes drying or fixing processes as well as the processes all around the stenter. Translated to the service life of a stenter, the energy costs amount to roughly 10 million euro. With the right straightening ad control technology, up to 30 % of this sum can be saved. The Mahlo team is looking forward to find the best solutions together with their clients.

125,000th KARL MAYER machine crowns a 50-year partnership with Dong-Jin Textile from the sports shoe industry

One company has hit the ground running – with a milestone machine

Dong-Jin Textile is one of the most well-known players in the sports shoe fabric sector and works for big brand names worldwide. This company has its headquarters in Busan / Korea, and just like sports men and women, speed and agility are what have made it successful – and this manufacturer also demands the same high performance of its production machines. In the spring of 2018, Dong-Jin Textile expanded its production capacity with the acquisition of one of KARL MAYER’s newest machines. This new jacquard raschel machine has been specifically modified and offers maximum patterning flexibility. It operates at a unique speed of 1,200 min-1 and is also special for another reason – it is the 125,000th machine to be delivered by KARL MAYER and is a measure of the company’s high level of success.

This high-speed machine was sent quickly by air on its way to the customer’s site. It reached Incheon Airport on 14th July and immediately went into production, without first undergoing processing trials in the customer’s research department, which had been the original plan.


Always one step ahead

Dong-Jin Textile exclusively manufactures shoe fabrics for the sports industry and is one of the biggest global suppliers in this sector. This company is also one of the biggest in the country’s textile sector. It has a workforce of 600 and also uses a large number of fabric producers acting as subcontractors in the southeast of the Korean Peninsula especially. Dong-Jin Textile owes its success to its exceptional closeness to the market. The president, Woo Chul, Choi, has excellent contacts with the brand names operating in the sports shoe sector, and provides them with textile solutions so that they are always one step ahead. This entrepreneur has demonstrated his pioneering spirit in his trendsetting collections. He has taken new paths with great decisiveness. “I greatly value Mr. Choi as a business partner. He has a phenomenal knowledge about warp knitting. It is amazing that the president of such a company knows so many details about our machines. He is able to make quick decisions and always keeps his word.” says Rainer Mueller. KARL MAYER’s Sales Director for Asia deals directly with the president when handling machine projects. He relies on high-tech machines to produce his innovative textiles – on the machines manufactured by KARL MAYER.

A long-standing partnership

Dong-Jin Textile and KARL MAYER have been working together for 50 years. The company founder, Byung Kil, Choi and his son, Woo Chul, Choi, who now manages the company, have bought more than 250 warp knitting machines – exclusively from KARL MAYER with the support of its long-term partner Illies. The company has invested in high-speed tricot machines, double-bar and jacquard raschel machines as well as warping machines.

The machines are operating in several factories in South Korea and Vietnam. Dong-Jin Textile also intends manufacturing in Indonesia from the second half of 2019. KARL MAYER is ready to give Mr. Choi the utmost support for this new challenge.

Interview statements by Woo Chul, Choi, President of Dong-Jing Textile, on the occasion of the handover of the anniversary machine:


Mahlo trainees get degree certificate

The first workday of their career is still present in the minds of the five apprentices from Mahlo GmbH. Now, three or three and a half years later, this chapter is already closed. At the end of their successful training, Mahlo CEO Rainer Mestermann handed every junior employee his or her diploma of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.


“Now it is in your own hand what you will do with your professional future. With your certificate diploma, you have the adequate tool.” Mestermann directed these words to industrial clerks Franziska Berr and Tamara Schäffer as well as Kevin Schumacher, Thomas Thaler and Resul Yaylagül, who can call themselves Electronic technician for industrial engineering, mechatronics engineer and industrial mechanics for machine and system engineering from now on. All of them have happy memories of their apprenticeship and are sure to have chosen the right profession. They emphasize the good working atmosphere. “We were allowed to work self-reliantly but could always ask more experienced colleagues or our trainers for help”, says Berr. With Resul Yaylagül, his joy in his profession and his apprenticing company has transferred to his family: in September, his sister will also start her training as an industrial mechanic at Mahlo. “Of course it is positive for us as a company if family members join us. That means we are doing something right”, so the CEO.
Mahlo generally focuses on training young skilled staff. At the moment, the machine builder is employing 26 apprentices, in September, eleven more entrants start and the application period for next year is already in full swing.

In order to make the apprenticeship not only educational but also enjoyable, trainers Eva-Maria Markl and Andreas Beil frequently come up with special activities. These include for example a bowling event or the introduction days for getting to know each other at the beginning of the apprenticeship.


Mahlo staff completes hydraulic lift training

Safety and responsibility for its staff is written in capital letters at Saal based machine builder Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG. Therefore, employees regularly take part in trainings and further education that are necessary to fulfill their tasks safely. Six colleagues from production and facility management now have completed training for hydraulic lifts in accordance with DGUV.


“That’s like the driver’s license for lifts”, says Jochen Zellner, commissioner for work safety at Mahlo. For an entire day, Biberger Company with its staff member Frank Bernhardt has come to Saal to train the Mahloneses on-site. First, theoretical lessons were on the agenda, for example about safety regulations, equipment technology and the dangers dealing with lifts. The newly acquired knowledge was evaluated in a test afterwards. Then, the participants could put what they had learned into practice. In addition to lifting, lowering, rotating and slewing, they also practiced working safely at the platform as well as driving. “With this training, all participants got the so-called System-Card as a certificate”, so Zellner. The certificate is valid for five years. After that, a short-term training and another test are necessary.



Mahlo GmbH exhibits at ICE Southeast Asia in Bangkok


At the ICE Southeast Asia, held from 5 to 7 September in Bangkok, industry experts can get an overview of the German machine manufacturer Mahlo’s broad portfolio for quality control technology at booth 118 in hall 106. 

“Apart from presenting concepts on how to save money in the demanding coating and converting market, we’ll mainly listen to the challenges that are being brought forward from the visitors of the exhibition”, says Mahlo Area Sales Manager Stephan Kehry. Consulting the customers and advising them for the right process in order to optimize the entire manufacturing setup is one of the major subjects of Mahlo when it comes to customer partnership. The quality control system Qualiscan QMS-12 is just the right tool for this task. With the renowned on-line measurement and control solution, parameters like thickness, basis weight, density, coating add-on and moisture can be determined. The modular system impresses with a broad portfolio of measuring frames in different sizes and sensors for almost every requirement.

“Southeast Asia is on the turning point towards quality oriented products”, Kehry explains. Whilst commodities with low prices were defining the pace of the market in the past, the requirements now have shifted towards a more quality- oriented focus. This paradigm-shift serves two main targets: first, saving cost by creating a higher efficiency and a better transparency. Second, producing an overall better quality to have a better reputation in the market and finally achieving a higher profit. “Both the points can be easily achieved by Mahlo equipment. And on top of that we can share the experience of a family-owned business with a history of more than seven decades.” For an industry that has started to strike a new path, that knowledge can prove to be substantial. A lot of Southeast Asian companies want to enter the European market. To do so, they have to meet the quality standards for this segment. “It’s our aim to help the Southeast Asian customers meeting these standards. It’s our task to make processes more transparent, to provide close loop systems, to avoid mistakes”. According to the expert, it’s those little deviations from the standard or the goal, which make a difference. For the success in the European market as well as for the individual profit.

The ICE Southeast Asia, as the world’s leading paper, film and foil converting industry Exhibition, is the ideal meeting place for exchanging ideas and discussing the best investments. Always up to date, this year’s event will focus strongly on quality, sustainability and on industry 4.0. And Mahlo is providing valid and proven solutions around these topics already today.
