Tekscan systems can measure force and pressure distribution variations between nip rollers. Software displays data & imagery of the nip pressure profile to help verify uniformity along the length of the roller. Real time display of the data allows the user to see the impact of machine adjustments, for a fast and accurate set up. Easily identify:

  • Crowns
  • Roller deflections
  • Misalignment
  • Diameter variations

The result is less downtime and product waste, leading to better yields and improved cost.
