Mahlo Lifts Straightener Technology To A New Level
The Indian Textile Journal|March 2018

With new standards, the generation 15 Mahlo machines are not only optimally equipped for the future, but also help to save costs and raw materials and improve product quality.

Every day, several thousand kilometres of woven and knitted fabrics pass through the production facilities of textile manufacturers all over the world. And for every single centimetre of it, the quality has to be right. This means above all: straight-thread fabric. This poses great challenges for manufacturers of increasingly sophisticated textiles. Mahlo GmbH + Co KG has been the perfect partner for over 70 years when it comes to straightening things out. The German machine builder has once again set standards in textile production and finishing with its generation 15 devices.

Cost-efficient and quality-oriented textile finishing is foremost an operative matter; but often enough it is decisive in whether market share is even achieved or not. The use of suitable measuring and control systems in textile finishing, which are of fundamental importance for optimisation and reproducibility of process parameters, is explained not least against this background.

In most applications, distorted products are one of the biggest problems to be solved for textile finishers. Distortions change the original structure of the product, reduce the quality and thus the prices to be achieved, and must be eliminated in order to preserve the present utilisation value of the product. Regardless of surface effects, this must be done fully automatically at today’s commonly high product speeds. Not an easy task!

Since the introduction of the first automatic weft straightening system in 1959, Mahlo has been intensively involved in this subject and has become synonymous with fully automatic weft thread straightening. As inventor of automatic straightening, the German machine builder determines the world market until today. Based on many years of experience and systematic utilisation of state-of-the-art technology, the latest universal Mahlo machine generation 15 was developed and presented to a broad public for the first time at the ITMA in Milan in 2015. In the meantime, the system has proved its worth in the industry many times over, which is proven by around 800 units delivered and consistently very good reviews.
