Common Web Handling Problems

Fundamental Web Handling principles apply across all roller-transported manufacturing processes. Understanding the basics helps to improve productivity and reduce waste of products made from papers, films, foils, nonwovens, textiles, belts, or any thin, continuous material. This eBook by well-known expert Tim Walker outlines many common issues with tension control, roller design, nipped processes, web position control, wrinkle prevention, and winding.


Nova Films & Foils, Bedford, OH, has installed Vetaphone single and double-sided corona treating units on a 65-in. wide coater/laminator that is capable of running 600 ft/min. "We chose Vetaphone because it was highly specified at a competitive price. It also looked better-designed and engineered, and we are convinced we made the right choice," said Bruce Allaben (right) with Rick Huskey. The units drew praise for their small footprint and the ease with which they were integrated into the new coating line. "The design of the electrode cartridges allows easy access for cleaning and maintenance, and any after sales support we've needed has been prompt and efficient," added Allaben. According to Huskey, the consistent dyne levels achieved by the corona treaters across a range of substrates has allowed the company to develop new products and be more responsive to its customers' demands.
