The right solution for every purpose

Weft straighteners

... from Mahlo - The best way in the world to realign distorted fabric optimally

Mahlo offers a wide range of systems for distortion detection and correction.

An Orthopac weft straightening system automatically detects and straightens distortions of almost all textile products, such as woven or knitted fabrics, carpets, towels and much more.

The Orthomax pin wheel weft straightening system is a fusion of an optical weft straightener and a mechanical pin wheel straightener.

The Orthofact is the classic mechanical pin wheel straightener.

Process control

... that pays for itself

The most valuable energy is the one that is not used!

If you want to lower costs by optimising profitability and adding value, there is a simple way to reach this objective: by saving energy. Mahlo supports you with optimised process control.

The energy efficiency of the production plants can be drastically increased through suitable measuring and control technology from Mahlo. This means, at the same time, increased productivity with usually improved reproducible quality, optimised raw materials usage and work effort accompanied by clearly improved plant utilisation.
