An aging web guide no longer in production was causing losses for Labelteq Unlimited

Paul Black, President of Labelteq Unlimited, Inc. had a big problem in one of their converting lines...

His company needed a fast and permanent solution. Our proposed application with a web guide upgrade kit system helped him and his company reach that solution.

Labelteq Unlimited, Inc., was running into trouble with an old General Web Dynamics web guide installed on their Mark Andy 2200 7" press. This particular model uses a hydraulic actuator.

Servo Center Servo Installation

The servo centering is a term used to indicate the middle or center position of a web guide mechanism. For an intermediate web guide this would be the position where the web guide mechanism would be aligned with the rest of the machine so that idle roller(s) on the web guide would be parallel to the other fixed idle rollers on the machine. With terminal guides this would usually correspond to the middle of the stroke of the unwind/rewind carriage.
