Large, artistic graphics, timeless glen check or exact pinstripes – the choice of patterns for textiles knows no limits. More and more sophisticated materials are being used to this end, varying greatly in density or elasticity. This presents an increasing challenge for textile manufacturers to produce straight weft and straightened patterns.
Here, the alignment according to the design often plays a greater role than the weft insertion. The German company Mahlo GmbH + Co KG solves this problem with its improved Patcontrol PCS-20 system for pattern recognition and warp control.
