Mahlo and Monfongs hold symposium in China

A Germany-based machinery manufacturer Mahlo and Chinese Monforts Fong’s Textile Machinery (Monfongs) organised an expert meeting for textiles producers, held in Shantou City, on the eastern coast of Guangdong, China, last month. The event welcomed around 200 partners and customers, mainly from the province.

Both companies wanted to broaden the participants’ – mostly service technicians – understanding of how to achieve the best possible results with their machines, whether it is with maintenance or additional equipment. Members of Monfongs greeted the audience and gave lectures on the importance of service and maintenance in the morning.

In the afternoon, Mahlo took the stage. Following the welcoming address by Mahlo’s Sales Director Thomas Höpfl and Joseph Tsai of Mahlo’s sales and service agent Shanghai Kuantex, Jimmy Rong from Kuantex introduced the process control system Famacont PMC-15 that determines the thread density by means of a non-contacting, optoelectronic or imaging process.

“The instrument is of great value for Guangdong’s vast knitting industry,” the company explained. Knitwear is sold by weight, so a consistent product is highly important. In the production process, however, knitted goods are under substantial mechanical influences that entail stretching and by that result in a reduced basis weight. The PMC sensor at the inlet measures the course density and compares it to a pre-set specification. Corresponding to that, the computer sends a signal to the overfeed roller, which regulates the fabric in-feed of the stenter machine. This way, the elongation of the fabric is compensated at the best possible rate. Another sensor at the outlet measures and visualises the final result.

Jimmy Rong explained to the audience, how they can get a better performance out of their existing machinery by installing a Mahlo Famacont PMC and hence increase the product quality and customer satisfaction. Similar is the outcome when using a Mahlo weft straightening machine, the company added.

In the course of the day it became clear how experienced Mahlo’s local service technicians are with the devices, said Thomas Höpfl. “They can maintain the machines trustworthy and attend to many problems, which is a big advantage for our clients. Because shorter downtime means minimum production loss and higher profits in the end,” he commented. The symposium was closed by an evening dinner with participants and business partners.
