According to Jeff Damour, CAC engineering manager, this new mounting bracket includes a cantilevered extruded aluminum slide rail frame allowing easy web width adjustment. The hand operated angle adjustment knob makes for easy side-to-side tuning of anti-wrinkle action.
Four-bolt mounting makes these mounting brackets easy to mount. They may be purchased to accompany any new Adjusta-Pull applications or added to existing Adjusta-Pull nip type anti-wrinkle systems in the field. Simple, one bolt mounting of the Adjusta-Pull system to the bracket is all that is required.
Damour says,"We have designed these mounting brackets with ease of installation and versatility of use in mind. I highly recommend this mounting system for any Adjusta-Pull anti-wrinkle application, new or already existing."
Adjusta-Pull nip type anti-wrinkle systems employ two opposing nip roll assemblies that are mounted to each edge of the web. The nip assemblies are angled away from each other. Each web edge will attempt to maintain a 90-degree entry angle to each Adjusta-Pull nip assembly, effectively pulling on each edge of the web, removing wrinkles. Damour says the system is a very simple answer to the very complex and expensive problem of web wrinkles.
