Mahlo to detect distortion in textile application

Mahlo is offering a tool to the manufacturers so that they can evaluate and monitor the condition of their fabric, according to Stephan Kehry, Textile product Manager, Mahlo. The textile manufacturer should produce stitch, thread, or pattern straight goods whether they are knitted, woven, printed, coated, or laminated. If there is any kind of distortion in the fabric, its quality and price reduce. Optoelectronic scanning is the solution for straight goods for the majority of textile manufacturers. As per Kehry, there is no other principle that can measure so many materials and applications fully automatically. He also said that the increasing demands of the market can be met by their own product mix that detects distortion well.

The TK-12 sensor can detect weft and course distortion in all textile structures in real-time. The sensors are evenly distributed across the fabric width to determine the total distortion reliably. These sensors have the oscillating lens that registers the light-dark modulation to detect and calculate the warpage in real-time.

In some cases, TK-12 sensors are not effective, so Mahlo uses imaging scanning as a supplement. According to a textile expert, the imaging method is the best for manufacturers of blackout fabrics, woven crepe, fabrics with the untwisted weft, and structures with small patterns.

The best of both worlds in the production line can be achieved by using Mahlo’s hybrid scanning. It combines both optoelectronic and imaging scanning. According to Kehry, this hybrid scanning combines the advantages of both systems due to which a superior system can be created so that a lot of work can be taken off the manufacturer's hands.
