STILLWATER, OK—Many operations in need of upgrading their current converting line have to deal with replacement of outdated components, such as web guides. Many still run controls and sensors that have been obsolete for years. The mechanical components might still be sound, or they could be rebuilt at a low cost. However, does it make sense to have a web guide with outdated controls and sensors?
Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC is introducing this solution to the converting industry with their new line of retrofit kits for many existing displacement, steering, unwind and rewind web guiding systems. The kit allows converters to keep their mechanical components and upgrade their sensors, actuator and controller with the easy and simple to use ARIS retrofit kit. The ARIS line enables a calibration-free guiding solution.
“Our customers wanted to get the benefits of our sensor and control technology at an affordable cost. Especially for an upgrade, they didn’t want to take the route of complete web guide replacement. For smaller operations this is a great opportunity to install the latest in sensor and control technology and enjoy the benefits at affordable cost,” indicated Ron Schmidt, director of sales of Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC.
OEMs can also benefit from these retrofit kits, as it allows them to manufacture their own mechanical components for web guides and install the kit to make their guides more powerful.
Ron further emphasizes that “when you approach us, our technical staff is directly involved in the sales process to make sure that we will provide the best solution to solve your issue. The kits are simple to install and operate, but we want to help you have a great experience with our products.”
