Upgrade Famacont PMC to Optipac VMC

From Sensor to process control

Quality and efficiency of a production process can be increased with optimal process control from Mahlo. This gives Mahlo customers a clear advantage over their competitors. Users of a Famacont PMC-12 or 15 are now able to further increase their economy utilising a simple system upgrade for the multifunctional Optipac VMC-15.

Additional measured values?

A Famacont PMC in the production line already offers the best precondition to optimise key parameters such as knit density, weft thread and course count and to ensure a homogeneous end product. The upgrade to the Optipac VMC-15 allows to measure and to control additional key values for high-quality fabrics.

Control residual moisture

Textometer RMS
verifies the ideal residual moisture or low moisture level of the product web in the drying process.

Sensor Ecomat AML

Control exhaust air humidity

Ecomat AML
optimises the exhaust air moisture control to maximize the evaporation capacity while saving energy.

Infrarot pyrometer Permaset VMT

Control dwell time

Permaset VMT
monitors the product temperature contactlessly and thus the optimal dwell time during the thermo-fixation process

High temperature sensor Thermosense HP270

Measure fabric temperature

Thermoset OMT
contactlessly controls the temperature of the product surface during the drying process.
