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.
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.
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.
Sheeters used to cut rolls of material into individual sheets. Sheeting systems may also include equipment for stacking, slitting and other secondary operations.
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 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 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.
