The PDG-FS inverted pedestal from AccuWeb features a tread plate to serve as a walkway on an existing coating line. Access doors allow operators to quickly thread up the line and the web guide is powder coat painted to match the existing equipment. This PDG also features 4X21U WideArray edge detectors that automatically detect web edges passing anywhere through its 18.4-inch-wide edge detection range (36.4-inch total), eliminating the need for moving edge detectors.
The wide detection range allows operators to change the guide point or web width on the fly, speeding change-over times by eliminating manual adjustment or mechanical edge sensing devices. The detectors feature AccuWeb’s patented compensated array technology that automatically compensates for web flutter and pass-line variances, changes in temperature and humidity, as well as the effects of dust, dirt and other environmental factors.
