PolymagTek’s custom “Wide Web Cleaner System” can clean webs over 160” wide, of any composition, in thickness range of .001” to .060” and at web speeds up to 2,000 fpm. The adhesive tape contamination collection rolls can be programmed to transverse and clean the highest contamination areas (i.e., web edges) of the Polymag Blue Contact Cleaning Rolls more often than the center.
The traversing tape can be placed into the step and clean (collection) or continuous cleaning mode. The tape rolls are mounted “shaft-less”, using spring-loaded gudgeons for quicker and simpler tape roll changes. Tape rolls move outside of machine frame for convent tape changes while the web is still being cleaned for non-stop operation.
Optional Cleaner features include patented oscillation of the tape and/or contact cleaning rolls, and speed matching of the tape rolls at higher web speeds to avoid tape skidding.
