Web processing problems? This seminar might help

22 March 2010

Seminars For Engineers announces the 2010 dates for its Principles of Web Handling two day technical seminar, which focuses on the fundamentals and process know-how needed to handle any web handling issue. From exploring the theoretical to understanding practical applications, participants will be able to diagnose and treat existing problems and also accurately identify the specifications needed for new webs.

Critical areas of tension control, web tracking, roller choices and their effects, machine alignment and web defects such as roping, telescoping, and staring will be covered at various levels. Although theory is included, emphasis is placed on practical problem solving techniques for the plant engineer. Dates and venues are as follows:

April 7 – 8, 2010
Birmingham, UK
Holiday Inn Birmingham M6, JCT.7
9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The course is applicable to any web-based product, including paper, film, metals, non-wovens, textiles, or any combination of coated or laminated webs.  It is intended for product and process designers, process engineers, quality, maintenance and lead operators, as well as sales and service personnel.

The seminar is instructed by Chris Watson, a web handling technology authority, who has lectured for over 30 years at conferences in the US and Europe on web handling technology, coating methods, drying technology, paper physics, and specific issues related to customers’ needs. A former president of Kroenert Corporation, Chris  has advised such firms as Fasson,  Mystic Tape, KDP in France, Sterling Coated Products in England, Renker in Germany, OpSec Banknote & High Security in Newcastle UK, Lohja in Finland, and major machine builders in the US.
