Guiding and stentering roller


Ceremat MMZ – Web guiding roller

Centres the web and avoids lateral drift

Keeps web safely on track

Drifting of the product web lateral to the running direction of product is unavoidable in some stages of textile finishing. The Ceremat system brings the product back on the right path. Applicationspecific variants are available.

Product highlights

  • Wide range of applications
  • Variable application through bar linings
  • Individual adjustment to any product web

Customer benefits

  • Reduced waste
  • Troublefree production
  • High product quality

A centred running web is essential

On a wide variety of finishing processes involving on-line textiles, the cloth will invariably tend to drift sideways without the help of some kind of system to prevent it from doing so.

This tendency can be countered with the versatile cloth guiding and spreading systems Ceremat MMZ from Mahlo. These guide the cloth in a preselected position into the machine, ensuring in doing so trouble-free processing at a subsequent stage (eg. Padder feed-side, sanforizer, minimum wastage at the selvedge cutters) and a top-quality product!

A remote broadband sensor determines the actual, lateral position (line) of the on-line web. A comparison between the sensor‘s two outputs and subsequent evaluation produces a control signal for the assembly’s actuator (servomotor). The course taken by the web is then corrected accordingly.

Area of application

With flexible slats

  • printing machines
  • perches
  • calanders
  • laminators
  • sueding and raising machines

With one-piece slats

  • stenters
  • dyeing and washing ranges
  • padders
  • calanders
  • and many more


Synthetic-rubber covering

  • Ideal for cloth that is likely to alternate between wet and dry
  • Materials: net curtaining, nonwovens, lining fabric

Stainless steel segment (-bar)

  • Ideal for wet materials owing to the low-wear and corrosion-resistant characteristics of the guiding slats
  • Materials: wet/damp woven and knitted fabrics

Mohair covering

  • Ideal for dry cloth only
  • Materials: wovens and knitted goods

EPDM – Lining

  • Using the Expander lining on the battens causes the uniform expansion of the product over the entire width of the web.
