Conveying the Mechanics of Nip Rollers!
Need a better understanding on the cause of web troughing and wrinkling propensity? In this paper, the following topics will be reviewed relating to the mechnics of nip rollers:
- Measurement methods for accurately measuring nip roller feed rates
- Modeling techniques are presented for predicting width-dependent nip roller feed rates due to roller loading and width-dependent bending
- Discussion regarding the practical implications of the width-dependent behavior is given
- Experimental data from the Optimation Technology Media Conveyance Facility for all aspects of this work
