A broad line of steering roll assemblies manufactured with anodized aluminum plate or structural steel tube to provide superior performance and reliability.
AccuGuide Steering Roll assemblies are manufactured in two construction methods. Structural steel tube (SR-FS Series) is used for wide web or high tension applications and anodized aluminum plate (SR-AP Series) is used for mid-to-narrow webs. Both designs incorporate a proprietary linear bearing system mounted to an integral frame that provides for simple tram and level mounting. This eases installation and eliminates alignment problems. This unique linear bearing system allows the guide assembly to be installed in vertical, horizontal, or inverted positions for optimum application flexibility.
Heavy-Duty FS Series Structural Steel Tube — Provides exceptional strength and design flexibility for wider web or higher tension applications.
Low-Inertia Aluminum Plate Design — High strength-to-weight ratio allows fast frequency response in mid to narrow web configurations.
Proprietary Linear Bearing System — Cam follower bearings run in a hardened track, providing line contact for reduced friction and wear, resulting in a faster response.
Standard Sizes and Custom Assemblies — When a challenging application can’t be solved with a standard product, a custom designed AccuGuide PDG-FS provides a huge range of frame, roller, and finish options.
Easy Wipe Down — Smooth, anodized flat surfaces are simple to maintain in clean room environments.
Free-turning Idler Rollers — Free-running bearings minimize rotational torques – ideal for running light webs. Dynamically balanced rolls ensure vibration-free performance. Choose from live shaft or dead shaft options.
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.
