The market for quality control equipment is constantly growing in textiles as well as nonwovens, as per a top official of Mahlo GmbH, a manufacturer of measuring, control and automation systems for the textiles and finishing industry. He added that poor quality leads to reprocess cost and claims, while investing in quality allows optimising processes.

For the textiles industry, specially denim and knitted goods, the company has developed a pick counter which not only controls the density of the fabric by the stenter or sanforizer overfeed, but also provides an indication of the weight at the exit of the process, said Stephan Kehry, sales manager (India), Mahlo, in an interview with Fibre2Fashion.

“Unlike other systems, we use different sensor technologies for different tasks. For the control of the density we use the same light/dark modulation with an optical sensor as we use in our weft straightener, knowing that for this step only the best sensor principle is good enough. At the exit, we use a camera-based system which gives us information about the weight of the fabric. This way, our customers can show the result directly to their own customers,” stated Kehry.

Talking about the market for Mahlo’s equipment in India, he said, “India is a very demanding market. This is very challenging on the one hand, yet it is also very rewarding. Once a customer realises the savings he can make by a good quality machine he'll always come back.”

The company has recently doubled its production capacity by establishing new manufacturing facilities. (KD)
