Erhardt + Leimer Launches ELSmart SW 95 Guider System
The new system is self-supporting and easy-to-install, according to the company. Features include the new FE 40 digital infra-red wide band sensor and a new digital controller. The system also comes equipped with either an electric or a pneumatic actuator, and is available to widths of up to 3,800 millimeters.
The FE 40 focuses on the placement of the web edge rather than comparing light volumes, and also does not respond to ambient light. According to Erhardt + Leimer, the sensor responds even to transparent webs including those with variable transparencies throughout the web, making it especially suitable for use with open-structured webs such as some curtains.
Erhardt + Leimer also notes the redesigned guiding roller slats provide greater contact surface. In addition, their optimized profile shape ensures gentle, reliable web guiding even at high line speeds, the company reports.
