Readers will understand better how to design and operate machinery to avoid wrinkles, web breaks, registration, guiding, and other types of costly web problems. Designed for product, process, and maintenance engineers responsible for web machinery.

Winding: Machines, Mechanics and Measurements
A definitive book on the science of winding.  A three-part book (with supplemental CD) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; methods for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality; how and why many wound roll defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application.

The Ultimate Roll and Web Troubleshooting Guide - Print
Expands on defects commonly found in paper and paperboard products and in the production and converting of nonwovens, films and laminations.  Includes a glossary of over 3,000 terms commonly used in the paper formation, polymer extrusion, coating and converting industries.  Glossary includes an extensive list of terms compiled for these industries.  Chapters include troubleshooting and problem-solving information, flow charts for the edge defect category, and cause-and- effect logic to eliminate roll and web defects.
