Mahlo America, the US subsidiary of Mahlo, is celebrating 50 years of operation. For over 70 years, the name Mahlo has stood for high-quality control and measuring technology ‘Made in Germany’. Mahlo is a leading manufacturer of measuring, control, and automation systems for the textile and finishing industry as well as the coating, film, and paper sector.

The company opened its doors in Spartanburg in 1968. Quality measuring systems for all web-type products in various industrial sectors had long been the focus of the machine manufacturer, according to a Mahlo press release.

The Qualiscan QMS quality control system had been introduced decades ago. There is a wide range of sensors, traversing the running web on scanners, measure, and control parameters, such as thickness, moisture, or basis weight. It is just the right tool for a fast growing plastics and coating industry.

“Our focus on the QMS-10, 10A, and QMS-12 provided the growth potential that we needed to insure our long term success. Of course, the new path also presented some challenges: training for sales and service staff, new customers, new sales channels. Certainly, this was a learning curve and a good piece of work to be recognised in another core competence,” officer manager for Mahlo America, Mary Heath said.

Eric Reber made a major contribution to this fact. The technical sales manager is like the father of web gauging at Mahlo America. He spent many years in Europe and the US working on the development of online measuring systems.

“American customers were among the most demanding and knew exactly what they wanted. This experience has also been incorporated into the development of the Qualiscan QMS-12, the latest system. It has enabled us to catapult ourselves out of our pursuit position in a short time and to overtake the existing technology on the market. The scanners are built solidly, and the electronics absolutely reliable. The best sensors are only useful if they traverse reliably and smoothly,” Reber said.

To ensure that every customer receives the optimal system for their application and thus the desired results, the responsible persons in Spartanburg have installed a pilot line. According to Mike Weathers, who is mainly responsible for the tests, the interested parties send material samples and the required parameters and then the company checks whether and which sensor is suitable. Only when it is certain that the measurement will work as desired will the customer receive a concrete offer. Should questions, technical problems or maintenance work arise, Mahlo has a well-trained service department which is available around the clock. The combination of technical leadership and customer proximity has turned Mahlo from an underdog into a valuable player in the field of web gauging technology. (GK)
