Our History in Roll-to-Roll Technology and Web Handling Equipment

As a pioneer in the automation of roll-to-roll and web handling automation processing of flexible printed circuits decades ago, Northfield Automation Systems was one of the first companies to develop roll-to-roll and unwind rewind equipment that performed laser ablation on printed electronics. We were at the forefront of developing specifications for new and novel raw materials and then establishing a broad supplier base. Our low-inertia web handling rollers technology has become an industry standard, and our dancer system is without match.

The Innovative Impact of Web Handling Automation and Roll-to-Roll Processing

By using roll-to-roll, web handling or web automation, there are increased cost savings, better efficiency and stronger precision control – from incoming raw materials to the finished product. Through these automation systems and unwind rewind applications, Northfield Automation Systems is making an environmental impact by providing clean energy practices and energy-efficient web handling equipment, and products. Web handling rollers, roll-to-roll processing and web automation make an innovative impact on any sheet transformation job.
