Proprietary Linear Bearing System — Cam follower bearings run in a hardened track to reduce friction and wear, allowing for a faster, more accurate response.

Simple, Drop-in Installation — Optional cantilevered brackets and guide mounted or remote mounted switch pads provide fast, trouble-free installation.

Free-turning Idler Rollers — Free-running bearings minimize rotational torques – ideal for running light webs. Dynamically balanced rolls ensure vibration-free performance.

Projected Pivot Point — The unique bearing system is designed to position the pivot point exactly on the incoming web plane to ensure guide accuracy..

An AccuWeb® System is a Sound Investment

  • Tangible Benefits — While web guides represent a nominal expense within an entire converting line, they can have considerable impact on product quality, process waste, operating speeds, efficiency and maintenance costs. Choosing a web guide system that delivers optimum trouble-free performance is a wise investment. 
  • The Support of Web Guide Experts — The AccuWeb application engineering team helps you determine the best guide design and location to fit your specific converting operation. By evaluating your web widths, materials and change-over frequencies, as well as operating environment, AccuWeb helps ensure greater harmony between our innovative guide components and your web converting process for an optimum return on your investment

A Modular Design For Drop-in Installation

A PDG is the most common and accurate way to guide a web. It requires relatively small entry and exit spans. The moving frame pivots on the incoming web plane to guide the web to its desired position. The AccuGuide PDG-FS Series are engineered for web widths ranging from 2" (50.8mm) to 16" (406.4mm).
