Kartik/Mpdf generate not readable pdf

I have a problem with Kartik/mPDF that is not generate correctly the pdf. I use it in my model class and call the method from the action in a Controller.
Here are the code:
Model

    public function CreatePdf(){
      $content = "<h1>helo</h1>";
      $pdf = new Pdf([
        'mode' => Pdf::MODE_CORE,
     // A4 paper format
     'format' => Pdf::FORMAT_A4,
     // portrait orientation
     'orientation' => Pdf::ORIENT_PORTRAIT,
     // stream to browser inline
     'destination' => Pdf::DEST_BROWSER,
     // your html content input
     'content' => $content

    ]);
    Yii::$app->response->format = \yii\web\Response::FORMAT_RAW;
    Yii::$app->response->headers->add('Content-Type', 'application/pdf');
    return $pdf->render();
    }

Controller:

  public function actionCreate(){

      $model = new MElettrico();
      $model_Utente = new AzioniUtente();
      $searchModel = new CRUDSearch();

          if ($model->load($this->request->post())){
          /*  if($this->request->post('QE_QB') == 1)
              $model->QE_QB = 'QE';
            else
              $model->QE_QB = 'QB';
*/
          //  $model->StringaToDate(Yii::$app->request->post('Tempi_Consegna'));
          $model_Utente -> username = Yii::$app->user->identity->username;
          $model_Utente -> Lettura_QRCode_At  = date('Y-m-d H:i:s');
          $model_Utente -> Stato_Oggetti = $model->Stato;
          $model_Utente -> Azione = 'CREATE';
          $model_Utente -> save();
          $qrCode = (new QrCode('http://192.168.0.47:8080/index.php?r=site%2Fobject&Codice_Interno='.$model->Codice_Interno))
              ->setSize(75)
              ->setMargin(5)
              ->useForegroundColor(51, 153, 255);
          $qrCode->writeFile('C:/Users/carlo.lazzari/Desktop/prova/QRCodes/' .$model->Nome_Sullo_Schema. '.jpg');
          $model->CreatePdf();
          $model->save();

          $query = (new Query())->from('m_elettrico')
          ->where(['ID_Commessa' =>   Yii::$app->session->get('Commessa')])
          ->orderBy('Stazione_Appartenenza');
          $dataProvider = new ActiveDataProvider([
              'query' => $query
            ]);
          $dataProvider = $searchModel->search($this->request->queryParams);

          return $this->render('magazzinoElettrico', [
            'searchModel' => $searchModel,
            'dataProvider' => $dataProvider,
          ]);
        }
      return $this->render('create', [
          'model' => $model,
      ]);
    }

        //...
    ]);


    $conf = [
        'format' => 'A4',

    $mpdf->SetTitle('...');
    $mpdf->SetDisplayMode('fullpage');
    $mpdf->SetAuthor('...');
