Fife Corporation, the worldwide leader of web guiding systems, has released a new SE-46 Line Guide Sensor with the ability to reduce printing requirements and increase press speeds. The SE-46 eliminates the need for printed elements used solely for guiding. Advanced features demonstrate the ability to guide to existing one-dimensional graphics (i.e. bar codes) on a printed package. Requirements for printed elements are minimal, including a minimum line width 0.5 mm (0.02 inch) and smallest detectable feature of 3.7 mm (0.146 inch) at 600 m/min. Clearance between printed elements is reduced to 0.2 mm (.008 inch), further opening the possibilities. Higher scan frequency and a large proportional band allow for faster press speeds.
