Equipment for handling, processing and converting continuous webs of textiles, paper, plastic films, metal sheet or other materials.
Calenders and calendering equipment apply continuous heat and pressure to densify, smooth, or otherwise modify the properties of roll goods.
Core shafts and mandrels (air shafts) are used to handle winding reels in the processing of web-fed materials.
Cores and tubes are made of paper, plastic or metal and are used for mailing, shipping, material handling, and product display.
Die cutters and die cutting machines convert web or sheet materials into shapes. They are used to process woven cloth, non-woven textiles, and rubber sheets.
Embossers and embossing equipment create a three-dimensional image or design on paper, film, foil, or other ductile materials. Typically, embossing is accomplished with a combination of heat and pressure.
Web guiding systems provide precise lateral positioning for web-fed material. Typically, these web systems include sensors, controllers, guide rolls, drives, and actuators.
Laminators and laminating machines or presses bond together layers of materials such as plastic films on glass, wood or other substrates.
Metal coil winding and metal coil unwinding equipment is used to process continuous lengths of metal, or metal wire, sheet or foil in converting, coating, sheeting, and manufacturing applications.
Pulp and paper processing equipment includes fourdrinier machines, pulpers, digesters, refiners, chippers, chip processors and other specialized machinery used to process pulp and form paper webs while maintaining quality and throughput.
Sheeters used to cut rolls of material into individual sheets. Sheeting systems may also include equipment for stacking, slitting and other secondary operations.
Skiving and Peeling Machinery is used to remove layers of material from a sheet, roll or tube. For most applications, the material is removed so that the remaining product has a desired shape. In some instances, the material is removed in a continuous fashion.
Slitters and slitting equipment uses fixed or rotary knives to slit or trim webs of paper, film, foil, fabric, tape, or other roll stock to a specified width.
Splicing equipment is used to join two webs.
Tension meters are instruments that measure tension in cable, fiber, belts and webs, or sheets.
Web accumulators and coil accumulators are used to control the tension of materials in continuous manufacturing processes.
Web cleaners are designed to remove dirt, dust, chaff, loose fibers, additives, or powders from sheets, panels, rolls or webs.
Web controllers maintain control functionality over processes with web or sheet rollers. Control functionality includes maintaining tension of the web, centering on the track, and material feed rates.
Web inspection systems are used for the detection and/or automatic identification of web or web coating patterns and defects or problems such as streaks and blurs.
Web sensing systems and web scanning systems employ a variety of sensors that scan across a moving web to detect defects and measure parameters such as product basis weight, thickness and moisture.
Web tension indicators measure and report tension parameters in web or other flat-sheet production processes. Some types of web tension indicators have control functionality as well.
Web tension sensors are used to measure static or running tension in webs or sheets during the manufacture of textiles, paper, and other sheet materials.
Web winders, web rewinders and web unwinders are used for winding, rewinding, and unwinding webs made of paper, film, foil, nonwovens and textiles.
