Feeling the Nip Pressure!

Interested in learning how nip pressures are developed? This paper is a companion to a paper presented at IWEB11 where experimental data characterizing web feed rates, nip pressures and wrinkling in nip rollers comprised of single and dual durometer cover systems was presented. In this paper, modeling techniques are developed for predicting:

  • Nip pressures in machine and cross-width directions
  • Nip roller feed rates in machine and cross-width directions

Dr. Kevin Cole received an IWEB 2013 Best Paper Award in the Web Handling category for this paper.
