The new infrared web positioning sensor with a 440-mm web sensing window joins the WPS 221 IR to complement the line of wide width sensors. The wide width application sensors allow the user to detect edges, monitor and measure web width, detect the position of a string or wire, monitor the count of several strings or wires, and measure and monitor the distance between the outermost strands or between the strands. The latest feature in web positioning sensors provides monitoring and measurement of a moving stack of products, such as tissue, with any of the wide width sensors without the need for calibration.
Aravind Seshadri, president/co-founder of Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC, indicated that “…even though we are a young company, we always strive to position ourselves as the innovative, and maybe even disruptive company in the web guiding and web positioning sensor area. We see that there is much to offer from our technological know-how of web handling, and we are converting this know-how into products that give great benefits to our customers. Our products provide solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems.”
