Couple of weeks ago we made an announcement about our new Roll-2-Roll® Sensor product line ODC. We also announced the transition plan for existing customers using WPS to eventually transition to ODC. This caused some confusion and in this blog we will address this.
We were approached by a customer in the textile area to provide a solution for guiding a textile web base on the center selvage. Our solution involved contrast sensing to provide a selvage guiding application.
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:
We have a difficult to sense material. It is very porous, non-homogeneous, extremely translucent... Do you think your web edge sensor can see the material and guide the material?
And our answer typically is, yes we can.
