Ground up design for resiliency and results
As a spin-off of Oklahoma State University, home of the world renowned Web Handling Research Center, we give the easiest to use products that incorporate the most current thinking
A web guide that has the ability to handle materials that are hard to detect and work in environments that are harsh.
Starting up the line or changing materials, the no calibration feature of the web position sensor in our web guides eliminates the need for set-ups saving your operation of costly downtime.
A sensor resolution of 63.5 microns for all materials. The same accurate detection with our web guide is delivered across all materials, without having to calibrate the sensors!
The icon based operator interface in our web guides provides language independent controls. The no-calibration feature of the web position sensor eliminates complicated and time consuming setups.
Our web guiding system requires only two connections allowing complete installation within seven minutes, including commissioning!
An intelligent web guide that adapts to changes in the process and the environment automatically. Material changes, splices, web flutter, roller misalignment, environmental temperature and lighting changes, all are handled by our web guiding system without the need for human intervention.
The ability to change quickly from one run to the next, guiding on a line, contrast or an edge with just the pressing of an icon, that is the versatility that the ARIS Web Guiding System offers.
|A wide range of roller widths for narrow web applications, from 10 inches to 22 inches, along with options for surface profiles and surface coatings are available with our web guides. Typically, you want to limit the roller width so that it is at least two inches wider than the maximum material width your operation will handle. Roller selection is all about traction, a web guide system is only effective if there is proper traction between the roller surface and the web material. Operations running less porous materials at high speeds will definitely benefit from a grooved roller to eliminate a common problem for this condition, the entrapment of air between the web and the roller that causes loss of traction at the web guide. Smooth rollers with coated surfaces can be used for delicate materials running at lower speeds.||254, 305, 381, 431, 508, 559|
|Optimum operating temperature for our guiding system range between 0 C and 60 C. Both mechanical and electronic components in our system are designed to handle temperature extremes that are not typical of converting operations. We have tested the components of our web guides in extreme environmental conditions to ensure the reliability.||0 - 60 ℃|
|A standard feature of all our web guiding solutions, linear hybrid stepper motors. These actuators eliminate the compliant transmission in web guides and provide a more reliable and high dynamics response. The anti-rotation mechanism in the actuator also greatly improve the reliability of our system. High performance, high efficiency, exceptional endurance, and much quieter motor, ensuring precise positioning, rapid motion and long life.||Linear Hybrid Stepper Motor|
|Our web guides can be run with 24 V DC power supply. This increase the safety and reliability. The low voltage 24 VDC power supply also eliminates the need for UL certification.||24 V DC|
|A high performance web guide controller enables a high frequency response or high control frequency. This means that our web guide can react quickly to sudden changes providing a exception dynamic response for the overall system.||50 - 200 Hz|
|With the high performance web guide controller and high speed sensor acquisition our web guides can provide exceptionally high bandwidth for challenging applications. An error frequency of up to 8 Hz can be handled by the superior dynamic response.||up to 8 Hz|
|The guide mechanism and the guide actuator capabilities dictate the maximum tension that the web guide can handle. Our web guides are specifically designed for narrow web applications with web tension of about 2 to 4 pli (pounds-per-linear inch). Please contact us if higher tension requirement is needed for your application.||up to 225 N|
|The linear force that our linear hybrid actuator can provide depends on the application. More force enables high tension applications, while lower force enables high speed applications. For light weight nonwoven applications, our 250 N actuator is ideal, while for high tension applications the 1000 N actuator can be chosen.||250 - 1000 N|
|Maximum lateral displacement that the guide roller assembly will travel.||up to ± 27mm|
|The maximum linear speed of the guide mechanism indicates the dynamic response capability of the web guiding system. A high speed web guide can react to high frequency disturbances. Speed or correction rate is inversely proportional to the linear force. Low linear force means higher speed of the web guiding system and vice versa.||up to 175 mm/sec|
|A color touch screen operator interface allows quick and smooth interaction. The operator interface can be integrated within the guide enclosure or can be placed at a remote location away from the guide mechanism. The wide viewing angle of the operator interface increases the accessibility of our system.||Color touch screen|
|Language independent icons eliminate the need for language translations. The intuitive icons enable easy operation in any country without the need to modify the control panel.||Language Independent Icons|
|Unique patented fiber optic sensor technology is the heart of our guide control system. This technology allows our web guiding system to work in any environment with any material while providing true and accurate web edge detection. The sensor technology is extremely accurate while eliminating the need for setup or calibration.||Fiber Optic|
|Our web position sensor's resolution is maintained over a wide variety of materials without the need to calibrate the sensor, something no other web guide manufacturer can match. Two sensor resolution options are available: 0.0635 mm (higher resolution) and 0.125 mm.||0.0635 or 0.125 mm|
|The unique sensing principle of the ARIS Web Position Sensor allows a wide sensing range without the loss of resolution. This enables the use of a the guiding system for a variety of applications with web width changes.||16, 48, 220 mm|
|The high sensor accuracy of the ARIS Web Position Sensor allows our web guide control system to be highly accurate and reliable. True web detection technology within 0.8% of its real web position increases the accuracy.||>99.2%|
