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.

Web Guiding of Textile Fabric

Body
Very impressed with the Roll-2-Roll centering device and how simple it is to use and set up. We were looking for a way to accomplish this without having to add the camera systems or special sensors which would have required technicians in the field to have to be trained on and learn how to use correctly. With the Roll-2-Roll unit, just load the fabric, verify that the sensor is on the edge of the fabric and push the start button.
