Wide Web Converting
custom engineered solutions for web widths up to a 240” (6.10m) roll face.
Whether you print, slit, coat, laminate, manufacture films, papers, foils or
anything in between, AccuWeb can help you get the most out of your
converting process. The AccuGuide™ PDG-FS Series positive
displacement guides are manufactured from welded structural steel to provide
the exceptional strength needed for wider webs and higher tension
applications. Like all AccuWeb web guides, the PDG-FS Series incorporates
proprietary linear bearings and a carriage design that allows optimum web
guide performance whether installed in a vertical, horizontal or inverted
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. Intrinsically 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 wide web converting productivity).
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.
A remote station can
be located anywhere, allowing operators to adjust the guide points in as
small as .001 inch increments within the wide detection range to fine tune
web position with digital accuracy and repeatability. Web gage position and
guide point can be communicated via PLC inputs using the Micro 4000NET Controller.
WideArray and PointSource edge detector 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 A
