Most Intelligent WEB GUIDES should be EASY TO USE!

Simplify your setup without sacrificing accuracy

Roll-2-Roll Steering Guides are ideal for applications with long entry spans, where displacement guides cannot be used. Narrow Web Steering Guides are for narrow web applications with a maximum roller length of 500 mm. A patented fiber optic sensor enables the plug-and-play web guiding system. The Roll-2-Roll Sensor technology adjusts automatically to the physical characteristics of the material, such as opacity and porosity, to provide accurate web guiding performance.

Roll-2-Roll Steering Guides are easy to install, integrate in tight spaces, simple to operate and enable quick changeovers while reducing waste with accurate guiding capabilities. The Roll-2-Roll Controller, in its different versions for web guiding applications, powers the Narrow Web Steering Guides.
