Web Handler

April 12, 2007

Martin Automatic Inc introduces the MDR (magnetic driven roller) system, an advanced solution for handling light webs at lower tension levels and higher operating speeds. The new MDR technology can be applied to both web transport systems and to Martin’s line of high-performance unwinds.

MDR (patent pending) applies a magnetic link between web transport rollers and drive system. This substantially reduces or eliminates the negative impacts on a web resulting from roller inertia, bearing friction, speed change, and boundary layer air. The result is a system that operates at significantly higher speed and lower web tension.  And MDR technology enables equipment to retain a smaller physical size than equipment without this technology.
