About the Seminar

The Principles of Web Handling two-day training course will give you the fundamentals and process know-how needed to handle any web handling issue. From exploring the theoretical to understanding practical applications, you will be able to diagnose and treat existing problems and also accurately identify the specifications needed for new webs. You will learn about the critical areas of tension control, web tracking, roller choices and their effects, machine alignment and web defects such as roping, telescoping, and staring. This seminar will address these topics on various levels, from providing basics and rules to remember to examining some of the intricate physics of their behavior. Though theory is included, emphasis is placed on practical problem solving techniques for the plant engineer.
