Web Control Business
In the thin products industry (large strips of metal, paper etc.), “web” refers to thin objects in a sheet or rolled form. Examples of thin objects used in daily production in different industries are paper for newspaper and magazine printing, resin sheets for making liquid crystal panels for notebook computers and smartphones and food packaging films. “Web control” is the process of controlling such thin objects during manufacture to prevent shifting, sagging or wrinkling during the production process. Specifically, “aligning”, “pulling” and “adjusting” are the main kinds of controls required in the production of thin objects. Nireco cultivated this technology through our development of strip controlling equipment in our Process Control Business. By combining this technology with our “inspection” technology later developed in our Inspection Systems Business, we have become an all-in-one provider of web control equipment and inspection services that can meet a wide range of customer needs.
