Webex Inc. said its FeatherLight idler rolls for film processing are made of carbon-fiber composite tubing, giving them one-third the weight of standard aluminum idlers with a 120 percent higher load-bearing capacity.
The high strength and light weight allow film converters to run wider, lighter webs at high speeds, while minimizing tension. FeatherLight rolls provide the lowest inertia rating of any roller on the market, and respond more quickly to changes in web speed, according to the Neenah, Wis., company.
Standard face lengths range from 34-144 inches. Webex also can make custom lengths.
