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.

How to Set Up Web Width Measurement through a PLC

A programmable logic controller (PLC) or programmable controller is an industrial digital computer which has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability control and ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.

In this case, Roll-2-Roll Technologies programs the PLC for web width measurement in converting operations.

How to set Web Width Measurement Parameters using PLC

A programmable logic controller (PLC) or programmable controller is an industrial digital computer which has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability control and ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.

In this case, Roll-2-Roll Technologies programs a PLC, so you are able to set the parameters (or recipes) that best suite your operation for web width measurement. Learn how set up or change these recipes in your PLC in this video.
