A major printer in the US, Cenveo was faced with several web guiding systems that were mechanically sound, but had issues with their sensors, controllers and actuators. We were approached by their engineering department to evaluate our technology and our web guide upgrade kits as an option to upgrade their existing web guide mechanisms from different manufacturers. Initial trials were successful and led to several web guide upgrades in their lines with more to come.
The upgrades involved creating drop-in actuator systems to replace the existing actuators from three different major manufacturers of web guiding systems. There was a time constraint in that the customer needed a shorter lead time even thought the project required working on the adaptation of mounting brackets to replace the actuators with actuators from Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC.
The upgrades were installed at the Roll-2-Roll Technologies facility in Stillwater, OK. Turnaround was approximately three weeks.
The savings from avoiding the purchase of complete web guides, the improved performance and quality from the sensor and control technology adapted to their existing equipment and the typical customer service and support were of worth to another satisfied customer.
