Novation AF3 WebFlagger

Novation's AF3 WebFlagger has become an industry standard in defect marking. The AF3 WebFlagger automatically applies a pressure sensitive label or “flag” to almost any type of web moving at virtually all process speeds. The AF3 safely and accurately flags webs moving at speeds up to and above 4,000 fpm (1,200 mpm). The flags have the adhesive deadened on the portion which hangs off the web’s edge to prevent the exposed portion of the flag from sticking to machine parts such as idler rolls, or from folding back onto itself. The flags also have a film lamination for strength. A flag can be triggered to be applied by either an operator with the press of a button, or from almost any machine signal. There are five additional inputs which can be utilized for customer connections.
