At the ICE Southeast Asia, held from 5 to 7 September in Bangkok, industry experts can get an overview of the German machine manufacturer Mahlo’s broad portfolio for quality control technology at booth 118 in hall 106.
“Apart from presenting concepts on how to save money in the demanding coating and converting market, we’ll mainly listen to the challenges that are being brought forward from the visitors of the exhibition”, says Mahlo area sales manager Stephan Kehry. Consulting the customers and advising them for the right process in order to optimise the entire manufacturing setup is one of the major subjects of Mahlo when it comes to customer partnership.
The quality control system Qualiscan QMS-12 is just the right tool for this task. With the renowned on-line measurement and control solution, parameters like thickness, basis weight, density, coating add-on and moisture can be determined. The modular system impresses with its broad portfolio of measuring frames in different sizes and sensors for almost every requirement.
“Southeast Asia is on the turning point towards quality oriented products”, Kehry explains. Whilst commodities with low prices were defining the pace of the market in the past, the requirements now have shifted towards a more quality-oriented focus. This paradigm-shift serves two main targets: first, saving cost by creating a higher efficiency and a better transparency. Second, producing an overall better quality to have a better reputation in the market and finally achieving a higher profit.
“Both the points can be easily achieved by Mahlo equipment," Kehry continues. "And on top of that we can share the experience of a family-owned business with a history of more than seven decades.” For an industry that has started to strike a new path, that knowledge can prove to be substantial. A lot of Southeast Asian companies want to enter the European market. To do so, they have to meet the quality standards for this segment. “It’s our aim to help the Southeast Asian customers meeting these standards. It’s our task to make processes more transparent, to provide close loop systems, [and] to avoid mistakes”. According to the expert, it’s those little deviations from the standard or the goal, which make a difference. For the success in the European market as well as for the individual profit.
The ICE Southeast Asia, as the world’s leading paper, film and foil converting industry Exhibition, is the ideal meeting place for exchanging ideas and discussing the best investments. Always up to date, this year’s event will focus strongly on quality, sustainability and on industry 4.0. And Mahlo is providing valid and proven solutions around these topics already today.
