Wrinkle Removing Web Spreader Rollers
Solve Your Web Wrinkling & Tearing Problems – with Web Spreaders from Menges
Spreader Showing 2 Shaft Styles
For industrial rollers, including web spreaders, there are two basic journal types: deadshaft and liveshaft. With a deadshaft, the shaft and roller are separate pieces; the roller rotates on the shaft with the help of a bearing. With a liveshaft, the roller and shafts are one piece and the whole unit rotates as one..
Large Deadshaft Web Spreader
Like most wrinkle removers, this is a “deadshaft” design. The journal & roller core are separate pieces. The journal is mounted to the machine frame, while the roller spins on bearings.
Typical Web Spreader
Dual spiral-cut grooves penetrate deep into the rollcover. This penetration delivers the required amount of lateral flexibility as the roll grips and moves the web to a flat state.
Serrations on New Web Spreader
Closeup View: The serrations on a web spreader are just one factor in removing web wrinkles. Factors such as roller alignment, web tension and roller concentricity are also important.
