FULTON, NY | Celplast Metallized Products, in cooperation with Davis-Standard, LLC, recently hosted a one-day course called “Challenges of Web Handling and Winding” for 15 companies and over 60 attendees.The one-day complimentary program included a plant tour and information session at Celplast Metallized Product’s facility located in Toronto, Ontario.
“Films are getting thinner, machines are getting faster and product requirements are becoming more demanding,” says Jim Lush, Industrial Account Manager at Celplast. “As a result, the challenges of web handling and winding films in the flexible packaging industry have become even tougher. We felt this course would be beneficial to our employees as well as customers.”
The course was lead by R. Duane Smith, who is internationally recognized as a leading expert in web handling and winding technologies during his 36 years of experience in the Industry. The course provided practical information on how to confront the difficulties in web transporting, slitting, spreading, and winding flexible packaging papers, films, foils, and nonwovens. The importance of in-wound tension was discussed, how it is achieved and measured on various types of winders, as well as the causes and cures of common roll and web defects.
