Reliable web and edge guiding ensures a continuous flow of product through machine processes, minimizes downtime, and prevents material damage and loss.
Sensors are frequently used to monitor and control webs by measuring the web as it travels on the line.
Banner’s expertise in sensing technology allows us to offer solutions that consistently and accurately measure web material, keeping it centered on the line for continuous flow through the system.
Like many industrial sensing applications, web and edge guiding applications often involve targets that are traditionally challenging for sensors to detect, including clear, reflective, and extremely dark targets.
In addition to material texture, reflectivity, and translucence, the high-speed operation of web guiding equipment can challenge a sensor’s ability to detect and measure the material reliably.
Problem-solving sensors from Banner Engineering provide reliable edge detection for web guiding applications. See a few exmaple applications below, or contact us to discuss your specific application.
