Disc Brake/Air Tensioning System for Single-Width Presses
Robertson's disc brake/air tensioning system replaces old, outdated drum or wooden
block brakes with a stationary disc brake for smooth web control. The
process of setting tension for each web is automated with this system
by bringing individual web sidelay and tension controls to the folder,
where problems are identified. Start-ups are quicker and paper waste
is reduced with this system. From the beginning to the end of a roll,
tension remains constant. After the roll expires, the next roll remains
at the same setting. The time saved with these features allows
the pressman to go on to other settings, improving efficiency. Users
report better registration due to better web control, and most users
can quickly justify the cost of the system in decreased paper waste.
