Then, the Applications Seminar on Web Handling at the OSU Web Handling Research Center may be just the thing. That program, set for March 14-16 in Stillwater, OK, will focus on fundamental principles and analytical tools.
Those who would benefit include technical managers, engineers, and technologists, including those who have recently taken a position where web processing and handling are important. Participants will gain an understanding of the physical and analytical methods used in the running and handling of continuous strips of flexible material through process machines.
Topics covered are measurements, tensioning, speed and tension control, web-roller traction, converting, tracking, wrinkling, and winding. Special emphasis will be given to methods underlying the transport of webs through processes without incurring material defects. Participants will also see first-hand examples of how web-handling problems are studied during a tour of the extensive laboratories in Web Handling Research Center.
Speakers include Ron Lynch, a mechanical engineer with 35 years of experience working with webs and web-based products; Prof. J.K. Good of the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at OSU and a member of the staff of the Web Handling Research Center; and Prof. P. Pagilla of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University and Adjunct Professor, School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at OSU, and a member of the staff of the Web Handling Research Center.
Seminar fee is $750 and includes all supporting materials as well as continental breakfasts, break refreshments, lunches on two days and dinner on Monday evening.
