As guest speakers, German mechanical engineering company, Mahlo, introduced the students at the Bangladesh University of Textiles (BUTEX) and the Northern University Bangladesh, to the requirements and solutions of modern textile production. Mahlo is a leading manufacturer of measuring, control, and automation systems for the textile and finishing industry.

‘No excuse for warped fabric’ was the striking title of the lecture prepared for the students by head of sales, Thomas Höpfl, and area sales manager, Adnan Andac. At BUTEX, professor Md. Abdul Kashem; vice chancellor and professor Shaik Md. Mominul Alam, head of the department of textile machinery design & maintenance welcomed them. At the Northern University, the experts from Germany were joined by vice-chancellor professor Anwar Hossein; professor A. Y. M. Abdullah, chairman of the Northern University Bangladesh Trust; and professor Md. Humaun Kabir, dean of the faculty of science & engineering, according to Mahlo.

Together, they showed the 300 or so future leaders how modular process control can be the answer to current challenges in the industry, such as rising costs for raw materials and personnel.

Mahlo has developed the mSmart digitalisation concept. Höpfl and Andac explained the principle in a practice-oriented way, using the production steps around the stenter. Without measurement and control systems, textile finishing is like a black box. The user is solely dependent on his experience. However, if he uses suitable sensor technology, the processes become transparent and can be controlled effectively. Mahlo uses its automatic straightening system to eliminate residual distortion. The yarn density sensor Famacont PMC regulates yarn density and basis weight to minimise residual shrinkage values. Process control systems such as the Permaset VMT measure the fabric temperature, and thus, regulate the dwell time. If the producer still monitors residual and exhaust air moisture, he prevents the fabric from overdrying, for example, and thus saves a considerable amount of energy.

The over 5,000 students at BUTEX and the faculty of textile engineering at the Northern University of Bangladesh are part of the most important industry in their country. The Mahlo representatives expressed their great thanks to Tun H. Kyaw, CEO of their long-standing service partner, Tootal Quality Resources, who had established the connection, as well as to the responsible persons of the two universities.
