WG series offset pivot guides
The offset pivoting web guiding systems WG are the ideal solution for the majority of web guide system applications. They are designed with a basic framework on which a second mobile framework, equipped with rollers, is mounted. The mobile framework rotates around an axis, called “pivot”. In our web guiding systems, this corresponds to the ideal rotation axis, which therefore guarantees a higher level of adjustment precision compared to the fixed pivoting frameworks.
In addition to the pivot point, the web is also tensioned correctly and constantly, and this, together with the cork, or other special coating of the rollers, creates the gripping effect required to perform the movement. The offset pivot web guiding system, according to different market requirements and to different application sectors, can be designed and manufactured in different sizes to guarantee fitting onto the machine they are to be used on.
WG.2000 is the largest model of the series usually used on rotogravure, flexographic machines, machine for the extrusion of plastic film or when the laminates are larger than 800 mm.
