Upgrade Your Old Web Guiding System to the Latest Technology in Web Guiding

Roll-2-Roll Technologies Web Guide Retrofit Kit enables easy upgrade of any old web guiding system with the next generation sensing and control technology. Keep the existing web guide mechanical assembly and replace the sensor, controller and actuator with this retrofit kit solution. Displacement guides, steering guides, unwind stands and rewind stands can be upgraded with this kit by properly sizing the actuator.

Old pneumatic, hydraulic or electromechanical web guides get the benefit of the latest sensing and control technologies with this upgrade kit. OEMs also benefit from this upgrade kit when they pair it with web guide mechanical systems. It allows them to provide their customers with the latest in sensor and control technology at an affordable cost.

The advanced patented fiber optic sensor technology makes the web guide retrofit kit easy to install, simple to operate and maintain. The accurate and precise measurement technology adjusts automatically to the physical characteristics of the material, such as opacity and porosity. The benefits include reduction of waste, downtime and changeover time.
