Are your rollers aligned in your machine?

Roller alignment is key to properly handling your web. Misaligned rollers will cause web handling problems such as:

  • Web wrinkling
  • Web tracking
  • Unequal tension across the web
Many systems, such as anti-wrinkle rollers, web guide systems and skew adjustment devices can be added to areas in your machine to combat the problems associated with misaligned rollers. However, if you are experiencing web handling problems, it is always best to start with a known "foundation". The best way to align your machine rollers is to have them laser aligned.

Roller alignment should be part of your regularly scheduled machine maintenance because rollers do move out of alignment due to machine vibration and other factors that may be specific to your operation.
