Looking for what’s next in roll-to-roll technology? Look no further than Northfield, Minnesota.
Next month, Northfield Automation Systems is set to launch a new roll-to-roll web handling solution that will have the ability to run one or two 250 mm standard webs simultaneously or one web up to 500 mm wide within the same standard footprint. This state-of-the-art design also maintains tension for thin, sensitive materials that are advanced at extreme acceleration.
Advanced Processing Capabilities
To add to this challenging application, the material is shuttled forward and backward on a stage with acceleration up to 1.5g in either direction during its processing and then advanced for the next progression. With our web handling solution, these motions are completed while controlling the tension on these various webs without stressing the material.
Solutions delivered by Northfield Automation Systems have the goal of enabling seamless movement of materials through manufacturing processes and to help customers reach maximum efficiency and throughput while maintaining quality. This new web handling solution is no different. It is ideal for any intermittent or continuous manufacturing line that can process two webs simultaneously for greater throughput on one manufacturing tool.
Automated Versatility Strengthens Efficiency
Versatility in one standard sized set of automated web handling systems allows for ultimate flexibility in processing various products on a range of web sizes as well as two webs simultaneously. This advancement enables greater throughput on the single process line.
