Coating and Laminating
company was founded in 1984, coating and laminating have been AccuWeb
mainstays and a major focus for much of our product innovation.
producers of coated and/or printed films, papers, nonwovens, fabrics, and
foils have relied on AccuWeb to provide custom engineered solutions for
their most challenging web guide applications. This experience led AccuWeb
to pioneer the development of a multiple fieldbus or Ethernet interface in
the Micro 4000®NET controller.
of our closed loop web guide systems has application specific options
engineered to withstand the harshest raw materials or environmental
conditions. Whether you make food or pharmaceutical packaging, building
materials, pressure sensitive tapes, light sensitive films, printed circuit
boards, or virtually any web-to-web converted product, AccuWeb has the
appropriate web guide and the experience to help maximize your productivity
while ensuring environmental compliance.
covers the entire range of web guide applications with electromechanical
linear actuators that can move loads exceeding 100,000 lbs, providing a reliable alternative
to maintenance prone hydraulic systems.
coater/laminators often have multiple unwinds/rewinds in the 25,000+
(11,364+ Kg) range. Only AccuWeb tackles these heavy duty applications with
electromechanical actuators. They are clean, efficient and eliminate the
risk of contaminating the web with hydraulic fluids. The functionality of
multiple guides can be integrated through the Micro 4000®NET controller via
fieldbus or an Ethernet interface.
safe models are available to operate in Class I Division 1 Group C&D
hazardous environments. (See Electronics In,
Hydraulic Out to learn how AccuWeb helped one company improve
their coating and laminating productivity).
WideArray™ edge detectors offer a wide
sensing range using either ultrasonic or infrared technology, allowing
converters to change
web widths on the fly without the need for manual or mechanical
repositioning. (See A Guide to Achieving Six
Sigma Quality to learn how AccuWeb’s Wide Array played a key
role in one company’s move towards their
Six Sigma quality goal). WideArrays simplify the lamination process by
eliminating the moving parts when positioning one web relative to another in Chaser/Slave applications.
WideArray has AccuWeb’s exclusive dynamic compensation technology that
automatically compensates for dust, dirt, changes in temperature and
humidity, as well as web flutter and passline variances, and other
environmental factors. (See In Search for the
Perfect Edge Detector to learn more about Dynamic Compensation.)
Dynamic compensation has been applied in other unique ways, like the High Temperature Ultrasonic Edge Detector designed for oven environments up to 500º F (260º C).
