Web Handling Equipment
New Era’s pull rolls are designed to reliably convey your web from one machine section to another while maintaining tension control, tension isolation and alignment. Pull rolls, or tension isolation stations are common components of most web converting lines. That said, there are a wide variety of pull roll types, and each is selected based on the individual process needs of the end user. In applications where there is no concern with touching the face side of the product, nipped, s-wrap and even omega style pull rolls can be utilized to isolate tension. Generally, one of these types of pull rolls can be used, sometimes in conjunction with special plasma or traction coatings, to isolate web tension when touching the product face side is not an issue. A unique feature which New Era offers for nearly all of its pull rolls is the ability to use them as a web steering guide. This is particularly useful at the exit of a dryer as we can combine the guiding and tension isolation into one section, saving space and cost.
