Paper, Printing & Converting Machinery
Although we service many industries, our foremost services offered are to the web handling industry. Papermaking, printing, converters, film extrusion,laminating foils, whatever the product, if you run a roll to roll continuous web, we are the company to call concerning machinery alignment.
Our strong background and experience in this industry combined with our equipment and knowledge in roll and machinery alignment will solve your web runnability issues.
When your production machinery is out of alignment, common symptoms will appear that indicate alignment issues. Some common symptoms of machinery and roll misalignment are:
- Webs exhibit wrinkles, breaks, baggy edges and wander
- Web draws and tension variation
- Uneven press nips and pressure
- Excessive wear on wires, felting and roll covers
- Production problems develop with coating applications, control of caliper, de-watering, drying, cooling, calendaring, slitting, cutting and winding
- Off-register printing
Web production machinery must be installed properly in order to function correctly. That means all components must be on a common centerline; all rolls that contact the web must be level and square to machine centerline and parallel to each other.
Don't assume that because your machinery is newly installed that you don't have alignment problems. Many contractors simply don't have the proper equipment or knowledge to ensure a precision installation.
Our services will improve productivity, runnability and product quality off your production lines; not to mention reduced downtime, material waste and parts failure.
