Distortion correction

Weft straightening is crucial for the textile finishing industry

Every one of us has probably owned a pair of trousers where the trouser legs have always been twisted. An annoying phenomenon, which is due to the inferior quality of the material from which the trousers were made. The fabric was distorted.

The order of the weft and warp, knitted courses and wales, rows of tufting or sewing threads give the textile the structure and character that should be retained through all stages of production. Distorted fabrics cause problems throughout the entire production chain. Fabric distortions mean reworking, complaints, rejects and returns. Fabric distortions cost money. Distortion detection and distortion correction are therefore crucial for a trouble-free production process.

No matter whether you work with sensitive, flexible textiles or wide, heavy and stiff materials such as carpets: Orthopac straighteners can be individually adapted to the application. Mahlo's products range from pure sensors for distortion detection to complex, automatic straightening systems, individually configurable and equipped with process control systems.

Better product quality, straight-thread goods and saving resources in a single step: With the Orthopac straightening and process control systems from Mahlo.

    Distortion correction

    Key task in textile finishing

    The production of high-quality textiles requires equipment that monitors critical parameters to maintain speed and quality of the production. Controlling and minimizing distortion in a finishing process is one of the key tasks of a weft straightening system.

    Unwanted distortion is usually caused by uneven distribution of tension across the fabric web. The first step to a perfectly straightened web is the determination and analysis of the distortion. This data is then used to control a weft straightener, which corrects the measured skew and bow distortion.
