Transparency in process control for technical textiles


High-performance technical textiles have to fulfill their task to 100% in order to prevent damage and danger. The final product has to fully strictly meet requirements and gray areas are unacceptable. The processes have to be transparent, so that the user can recognize discrepancies at any time and can react to them.

A prerequisite for a working product, independent of further treatment, is a straight web. The automatic weft straightener Orthopac RVMC-15 from the manufacturer of measuring, control and automation systems Mahlo GmbH & Co. KG, Saal a.d. Donau/Germany, detects and straightens 97% of all known webs. For s-shaped distortions and non-detectable fabric, the pin wheel straighteners only work only for non-elastic products, however. This is different with the Orthomax RFMB-15, a fusion of pin wheel and roller straightener. Thanks to combining both technologies, the system minimizes distortions in web as well as elastic knitting. Many textiles made of elastic raschel knitted fabrics already benefit from these advantages. The next step is monitoring the further processing. With the help of scanners and sensors, the quality control system Qualiscan QMS-12 makes important parameters visible and therefore controllable. By measuring basis weight before and after the coating, one can determine the weight of the single layers.
