Web Position Sensor

Web edge sensor for challenging web materials

We are often asked by our customers to let them know if we can sense or edge guide a certain material. This is how this usually goes:

At first, you manage to work with the deficiencies they have.

Web Guiding and Monitoring Contrast Sensing - SCU5 Controller Set Up for Contrast Sensing

Roll-2-Roll Technologies' SCU5 Controller and Sensor system allows converters to use the contrast mode for line guiding in a few steps. This video shows how to teach the controller to tract a specific contrast for web guiding and monitoring. In additional videos we will discuss specific applications for contrast sensing that allow your converting operation to run more efficiently.
