Process control

Measuring, logging and controlling the production process

The business field of manufacturing or converting textiles is increasingly affected by rising costs for production and energy as well as growing demands on quality and flexibility. At the same time, however, profit margins are decreasing and shorter production times are demanded. Efficient, quality-oriented production is therefore essential for successful manufacturers. The use of process control is one of the most important keys to balancing the demands of economic, sustainable and at the same time high-quality fabrication. With life cycles of 20 - 30 years, energy savings and the "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO) play a decisive role in economic efficiency.

Process control increases efficiency and production throughput, improves quality standards sustainably and verifiably, saves resources and costs, reliably logs tolerances and production data and makes them usable.

Versatile process control systems

Modular design for a wide range of textile applications

Mahlo's portfolio includes a broad variety of process control systems and sensors for any application in the manufacturing or finishing process in the textile industry and related industrial sectors. The short payback times, high reliability and ease of use of process control equipment result in increased productivity combined with a noticeable reduction in waste. Our selection of sensors can meet almost any manufacturer's requirement. The modular design of the system allows flexible adaptation to all applications.

The system measures, logs and controls critical process parameters across the entire working width such as:

  • Temperature
  • Dwell time
  • Residual moisture
  • Exhaust air moisture
  • Thread density
  • Basis weight
  • Fabric width
  • Electrostatic charge

    Products must meet certain specifications or remain within a narrow tolerance range to achieve a certain level of quality. To continuously achieve and maintain this level, automated process control checks critical parameters such as temperature, weight or humidity.

    High-precision sensors can easily measure and control the smallest deviations, ensuring an uninterrupted production process with minimal material loss.

    With reliable process control data, adjustments can be made to the manufacturing or finishing process as needed without effort. For seamless digital communication in the context of Industry 4.0, Mahlo offers a cross-system solution here with easy entry and effortless scaling.
