Mahlo Introduces PCS-10 Partners With Wintriss

Mahlo Introduces PCS-10,Partners With WintrissMahlo America, Spartanburg, has introduced its PCS-10 Pattern Control System for use in carpet, terry toweling and printed upholstery manufacturing. Developed using camera-based technology, the system automatically recognizes patterns within running webs without any teach-in process, and is able to use color or structural variations to determine bow/bias distortion and pattern repeat lengths within patterned products. Automatic correction for bow/bias distortion is possible through linkage of the information to a Mahlo weft straightener, or the information can be used in final inspection to record repeat-length and/or pattern-distortion deviations.In other news, Mahlo America has formed a partnership with Wintriss Engineering, San Diego, to offer on-line surface-defect inspection to the textile and carpet industries. Based on a smart camera principle in which image processing takes place in the camera, the inspection system is flexible and easy to use, uses fewer components and is less expensive than comparable systems, and can usually be installed with no line reconfiguration, Mahlo claims. It can be integrated with other Mahlo on-line monitoring and control systems to provide complete inspection roll maps based on the end-users specifications. April 2002
