PRINCIPLES OF WEB HANDLING
From exploring the theoretical to understanding practical applications, you will be able to diagnose and treat existing problems and also accurately identify the specifications needed for new webs. You will learn about the critical areas of tension control, web tracking, roller choices and their effects, machine alignment and web defects such as roping, telescoping, and staring.

• Charleston, S.C. – June 17-18
• Raleigh, N.C. – Sept. 16-17
PRINCIPLES OF FLEXIBLE WEB SLITTING
The phrase “flexible web materials” includes more than the common paper, film and foil products; it also includes increasingly complex laminates, coated products and technical materials such as composites, exotic thin films, textiles, light metals, and electronic and medical products, to name just a few. The seminar’s major emphasis is on the more demanding process of shear slitting, but also includes comprehensive information on razor slitting and crush (score) slitting.
