A new standard for grooved rubber-covered idlers designed to effectively reduce or eliminate web wrinkling
The grooved rubber-covered WebSpreaders remain one of the most cost effective and frequently used solutions to web wrinkling. These idlers are covered with a rubber elastomer and are precision machined with angled, outward spiraling grooves across the roll surface. There are different elastomers available for use, each with different physical properties such as solvent resistance, heat resistance and hardness. In addition, various groove patterns are available to meet your specific application needs.
Our Customer Support Specialists can help you determine which elastomer and groove pattern is best for your specific application (see Elastomer Specifying Guide). Use the specification and pricing information on the following pages to order your WebSpreader idlers if you already know which elastomers and rolls you want.
