Unique Adjusta-Pull Concept
CAC's new air loaded Adjusta-Pull anti-wrinkle system is a remarkably efficient and cost effective method for wrinkle removal and web spreading. This system works using the web handling principal that a web will seek to be perpendicular to a roll in its entry span to that roll.
Air loaded Adjusta-Pull assemblies incude two nip assemblies. Each nip assembly consists of two 9" or 6" face x 2.5" diameter rollers. Standard air loaded Adjusta-Pull assemblies each have one rubber covered roller and one metal roller. The nip assemblies are mounted on each edge of your web and are in traction (because of the nipping action) with each edge of your web.
The air loaded Adjusta-Pull assemblies are easy to open and close which allows fast and easy web threading and include a pressure regulator to accurately adjust the air pressure to accommodate all types of material including delicate webs. They can be designed to allow remote open and close functionality.
When the nip assemblies are angled away from each other, each of the webs edges will try to maintain a 90 degree angle to each nip assembly. So, this anti-wrinkle device effectively and aggressively pulls on each edge of your web to remove wrinkles. Increasing the angular displacement of each nip assembly increases anti-wrinkle aggression. The greater the angular displacement of each nip assembly the greater the anti-wrinkle aggression.
