Video Web Inspection

Web inspection equipment involves a series of "electronic eyes" installed at strategic locations along the press line that are designed to detect tears or breaks in the web of substrate (paper, film, etc) as it passes through the web press. This reduces the likelihood that a broken web begins to wrap around the rollers and forces them out of the bearings causing extensive damage to the press. While web break detectors are primarily used to avoid severe damage to the presses, they also reduce the waste that would otherwise be generated if the web breaks.
