Have you measured your nip roller feed rates?

Elastomeric-covered rollers have the unwanted and often unpredictable characteristic of unknown surface speed owing to coupling between circumferential and radial strains within the nip.  In this paper we will:

Nip Roller Module

  • Describe and demonstrate a measurement method for accurately measuring nip roller feed rates.
  • Present modeling techniques for predicting nip roller feed rate and results compared to experimental data.
  • Demonstrate the ability to analyze roller coverings engineered with the ability to control nip roller feed rate while retaining nip pressure characteristics.
