Web Inverters / Air Turns

New Era’s proprietary design for air greased and air float bars allows us to provide reliable solutions to our customer’s web turning and inverting needs. We manufacture simple turn rolls for narrow webs all the way up to web flips for wide web applications.  Our air float style turn bar assemblies are complete with integral tension, pressure and guiding controls.  Our engineering staff looks at your materials and tensions in order to appropriately size the air bars and the corresponding variable speed blower.  As the substrate floats over the turn bars, some degree of web wander can be anticipated.  For that reason, we supply our turn bars with an integral web guide system to current the web position at the outlet of the turn bar.  Beyond these features, we have even made these units modular so they can be removed from the web line when not in use.  Otherwise, web path idler rolls can be supplied to allow the turn bars to be bypassed when the process do not call for the substrate to be flipped.
