New Pilot Line Verifies Web Gauging Performance

Mahlo offers fully operational pilot line for product testing, sample evaluation and technical training.

Mahlo America has developed the ability for processors to fully evaluate, before purchase, the complete capabilities of Mahlo's on-line sensor technologies to measure critical elements of specific web-produced materials.

Mahlo offers this fully operational pilot line for product testing, sample evaluation, and technical training. The line is capable of processing up to 75-in.-wide webs and is equipped with a full suite of traversing scanners and measurement sensors for detailed analysis of any roll good product. The new pilot line gives manufacturers the opportunity to test first-hand the effectiveness of Mahlo's web gauging technologies with their specific products and take away comprehensive measurement data to compare with their in-house lab testing.


Using non-nuclear sensors including infrared, laser triangulation, white light, and microwave as well as beta gauge and X-ray technologies, Mahlo sensors test for a wide range of properties including basis weight, thickness, coating add-on, density, moisture and air permeability.
