edge detection sensor

Roll-2-Roll® Sensors: How it works and what are the applications?

The webinar will cover sensing and measurement technology that are used in Roll-2-Roll® Sensors.

The presentation will cover:

  • the fundamental working principle of the patented fiber optic technology
  • how it differs from the conventional sensors
  • benefits of the fiber optic technology
  • application of the fiber optic sensor technology for sensing and measurement applications such as edge detection, width measurement, registration mark detection, flag detection, void/hole detection, tear detection, etc.

Pneumo-Hydraulic Web Guides

What are Pneumo-Hydraulic Web Guides?

Many displacement guides, steering guides, unwind / rewind guides manufactured in the 1960’s, 1970's, 1980’s and 1990's were controlled using both pneumatic and hydraulic control systems which are often referred to as pneumo-hydraulic web guides. These web guide were really common before the mass adoption of the electronic (analog and digital) controllers and electric actuators. A lot of these units were predominant in blown film lines, extrusion lines, flexographic printing presses and even in paper converting machines.
