Mahlo GmbH, manufacturer of measuring, control, and automation systems for the textile and finishing industry and the coating, film and paper sector, has announced that the company has completed 72 years of successful operations. Developer of the first automatic weft straightener, today, Mahlo employs over 200 people and operates in more than 100 countries.

Dr. Mahlo developed his revolutionary machine ‘Orthomat FMC’, the first weft straightener, introducing it for the first time at the leading textile fair ITMA in Milan in 1959. Every modern weft straightener is still based on the principle of this system.

To detect the drafts, Mahlo used a combination of sensors (called scanning heads) and a light source, between which the product run. Arranged on a rack support, Orthomat FMC’s scanning heads captured the position of the weft thread photoelectricly at various points.

At the end of the 1950s, the electronic system was still run by electronic tubes - the same that were used for radios. In the 60s, transistors were the preferred format. Already in the 1970s those were replaced by integrated circuits. Mahlo used this system also for its next coup: In order to guarantee the best possible workflow between regulator and straightening machine, the manufacturer combined both systems in one machine. The Orthomat RFMC was born.

In perfect timing for the company’s 70th anniversary, the new generation of weft straightener systems 15 was launched in 2015. The Orthopac RVMC-15 meets every challenge the modern textile industry has in store. Equipped with digital scanning and state-of-the-art processor technology, it adapts the control automatically to different textiles. (GK)
