Tired of Gentle Wavy Defects in your Knurled Wound Rolls?

We can help avoid the gentle wavy defects in future applications! In this paper, we present results for a particular type of web defect known as a Gentle Wavy Defect (GWD) that forms in the wound roll due to presence of axial corrugations that develop in the wound roll.  We begin by:

Web Roll

  • Presenting product and process information characterizing this situation along with potential theories as to the cause of the corrugations and GWDs
  • Providing results from numerious experiements that provide guidance on the likely mechanism responsible for the formation of the roll and web defects.
