Converter Accessory Corporation (CAC) has added bowed rolls to its line of anti-wrinkle technology and devices with the introduction of the new model FB350 bowed roll, which utilizes fixed bow technology, engineered to fit customers’ specific applications. Fixed bow provides aggressive, repeatable performance for demanding anti-wrinkle applications. It is also extremely well suited to separate slit widths for slitter rewinder applications, to prevent interleaving the company said.
The FB350 is currently available in versatile 3.5-inch diameter and face widths up to 70-inches. Drive sheaves are available for light tension applications. Rubber sleeve material may be varied where high heat, chemicals, adhesives or excessive ozone exposure may be a concern. Optional mounting blocks, designed for use with the FB350, allow for optimal bow placement in any application.
The inclusion of bowed rolls to an extensive anti-wrinkle product offering enhances CAC’s ability to offer complete standard and customized solutions to eliminate web wrinkles in any converting process. The new FB350 bowed roll will join WrinkleSTOP, Multi-Adjust WrinkleSTOP, Adjusta-Pull, Angular Adjusta-Pull bracket, Scroll Roll, and crowned and concave rollers to accommodate a wide array of solutions to combat web wrinkles.
FB350 bowed rolls are acceptable for use with textiles, all types of plastic films, paper and nonwovens. They can be used in applications from slow speed to high speed, narrow web to wide web.
Founded in 1974, CAC designs, engineers and manufactures web handling equipment for converters of paper, film, foil, nonwovens and textiles.
