Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC Announces New Controller for Web Handling Applications

Elevating the standards of precision and efficiency in the converting industry, Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC is excited to announce the release of the SCU6x Controller at Converters Expo South 2024 on February 20, 2024, at Greenville, SC.

This next-generation controller is a testament to our commitment to blending high-end technology with user friendly design, emphasizing simplicity and operational excellence. The SCU6x, along with the Roll-2-Roll® Sensors, provides an integrated solution that caters to web guiding, width measurement, defect detection and other web handling applications, setting a new benchmark for performance and ease of use.

There will be live demonstrations of the SCU6x, along with the ODC line of sensors and actuators during the duration of the show.


The SCU6x Controller builds on the foundational success of its predecessor, the SCU5, by introducing a suite of significant advancements designed to meet the dynamic demands of the industry: Faster Processing: Speed is of the essence in converting operations, and the SCU6x delivers with processing capabilities that are three times faster, significantly enhancing sensor response times and inspection efficiency.

More Memory: With 10 times more processor memory, the SCU6x can effortlessly manage larger sensors and multiple simultaneous tasks, ensuring smooth and efficient operation.

Enhanced Program Storage: Accommodating complex algorithms is no longer a challenge, as the SCU6x boasts four times more program memory, enabling more sophisticated processing capabilities.

Quicker Image Capture: The ability to capture images 16 times faster makes the SCU6x an ideal choice for operations using large sensors, ensuring rapid data acquisition without compromising on performance.

Higher Resolution: Detail is critical in converting, and the SCU6x offers 16 times higher image resolution, facilitating the detection of minute features with unparalleled clarity.

Advanced Processor: At the heart of the SCU6x is an upgraded 32-bit processor, offering greater precision and reliability in every operation.

These enhancements not only signify a leap in technology but also reinforce Roll-2-Roll Technologies’ dedication to empowering the converting industry with tools that drive productivity, reduce waste, and improve overall profitability. The SCU6x Controller is more than just an upgrade; it is a reimagining of what is possible in converting technology.

One Controller, Multiple Uses

“The SCU6x has something for everyone,” said Aravind Seshadri, President of Roll-2-Roll Technologies LLC. “The faster speeds and increased memory will enable us to make wider sensors for the converting industry, which is one of the most requested features from our end-users. Since wider sensors increase safety, reduce operator error, and allow for quick product changeover, this is a significant benefit. OEMs will also greatly benefit from the SCU6x's ability to run different applications with the same controller, allowing them to simplify part numbers for their builds. Finally, the dual-rail power supply and advanced power management from the SCU6x controller will enable reliable and robust operations.”
