29 May - 01 June 2018 in Milan, Italy

Visit Mahlo at booth 11 / B 121

Four days revolving around plastics: Our team is excited to meet up with producers, buyers and sellers of the complete industry at Plast 2018 in Milan, Italy. Let's discuss the latest trends and technologies!

Preeminent Exhibition for Plastics

The plastics production in Italy set new records in 2017. With a value of 4.5 billion euros, as many as 900 manufactureres employed 14 000 people. The export rate of 70 per cent of all goods shows that Italian plastic is purchased by converters all over the world who require high quality products.

Italian manufacturers of plastics and rubber processing machinery could be pleased with increasing sales to Germany, France and Spain, three traditionally strong markets. A jump in demands was also recorded for Russia with an increase of 109 per cent and for the African market with 22 per cent.

Now the Italian plastic industry is preparing for its most important exhibition. By gathering the whole industrial chain of plastic from raw material to finished products, PLAST is most prominent European event this year for the plastics and rubber industry. Over 1,100 exhibitors have registered, representing more than forty countries.

Film & Extrusion solutions from Mahlo

You are welcome to our booth 11 B 121 at PLAST 2018 in Milan, Italy. We will show you the latest technology of non-radiometric coating and film measurement. 

In the international Film & Plastics market we provide renowned on-line measurement and control solutions for film/sheet thickness, basis weight, density, coating add-on and moisture. You will find non-nuclear sensors plus responsive, professional technical support, and the most reliable, well-built scanning platforms in the industry.

Measurement without radiation protection requirements!

The Qualiscan QMS is a modular system for measuring, logging and controlling critical process parameters over the entire width of the product, including weight per unit area, coating weight, thickness, moisture etc.
Innovative coating & thickness measurement for extruded film!

Have you ever wondered how to measure thin layers and coatings straightforward and accurate? Whoever wants to measure thickness and coating of extruded film precisely can’t get past the quality controls systems of Mahlo!

Our team will advise you personally to all challenges posed by this topic.

QMS Measuring Frames

Webpro L

O-frame Webpro L

Big O-frame, many sensors

The WebPro L traversing frames represent the pinnacle of the Mahlo scanning frame family. They are available in traverse widths of up to 6,6 meters, and can run up to five Mahlo sensors continuously, precisely and rapidly across the online product.


Details

Webpro S

Webpro S

Extremely compact O-frame

The WebPro S traversing frames have been designed specifically to provide an exceedingly compact but rugged and reliable traversing platform for situations where space limitations would rule out the use of a conventional O-frame.


Details

Webpro XS

Webpro XS

Compact O-frame for small widths

The traversing frames of the type WebPro XS are used for many applications in various industries and are distinguished especially by their rugged, reliable and compact design. Traversing frames of this type can be used for product widths from 0.2 to max. 2 meters and can accommodate one Mahlo sensor.

The compatible design and use of precision linear slides permit installation even in restricted spaces


Details

Uniscan M

Single sided measuring frame Uniscan M

Single-sided measuring frame

The UniScan M or UniScan S traversing frames are the single-sided counterpart to the double-sided O-frames of the WebPro series, and have been specially designed to accommodate the single-sided sensing devices of the Mahlo QMS family.

This single-sided arrangement enables the frame to be easily retrofitted to existing systems, with the measuring sensors arranged above, below or at the side of the measuring frame. The Uniscan M accommodates up to three sensors.

Details

Webpro M

O-frame Webpro M

Medium O-frame

WebPro M traversing scanners are found on a wide variety of web processing applications in an assortment of industries, and are legendary for their robust construction and superior reliability providing a low cost of ownership. Scanners of this type can handle products of up to 4 meters in width with up to a total of 3 different measurement sensors.

Their compact design and ultra-precise traverse mechanisms enable them to be installed even where space is at a premium and at any angle to suit the given product/web flow.


Details

Webpro C

C-frame Webpro C

C-frame

The traversing frames of the type WebPro C are used for applications where much dirt is generated or the measuring head must be moved completely out of the product web. This type is available for horizontal or vertical product guidance and distinguishes itself by the robust, reliable and dirt-resistant design. It can be vertically employed to a product width of 1.2 metres and one sensor or horizontally of 2 metres and 1 sensor (more upon request).


Details

Mounting Frame

Stationary measuring point

Fixed measuring point

A fixed measuring point is used in simple applications where no cross-section of the entire web has to be measured.

As standard, the mounting frame consists of aluminum profiles, covers a width of up to 6m and can carry up to 3 sensors. However, other sizes or sensor numbers are readily available upon request.


Details

Gravimat DFI

Basis weight / thickness

Product highlights

  • Intelligent sensor with ultrafast microprocessor for preprocessing measurements
  • Precise measurements as a result of using extremely efficient beta radiation detectors
  • Four temperature-compensation sensors along with air pressure compensation

 

 

Customer benefits

  • Non-destructive, continuous determination of the weight per unit area of product webs
  • Highly stable and accurate measurement along with a minimum need to calibrate
  • The DFI allows wider measurement gaps and avoids damage to soft webs or wet coatings

Transmission of beta rays

The weight monitoring and control system measures the weight continuously, without contact, destruction-free and on moving product. The measurement is based on the attenuation of rays from a radioactive isotope through the substrate located in the measuring gap. This attenuation in intensity is an indication of the weight of the product.

The Gravimat uses a target weight to reduce the range of different m2 weights and thereby ensure a more consistent product.
