SV Infeed Tension System
Waste-reduction = Higher profit
In the past, running waste was considered an unavoidable part of the manufacturing process. Manufacturers had little choice except to watch how increasing waste could eat away at their bottom line.
Today, manufactures around the world understand that web tension control is the best answer to successfully reducing running waste. Servo Technologies’ SV Infeed Web Tension Control System achieves this by preventing the following types of common waste-causing problems from occurring:
Encased in a rugged, portable steel frame, the Servo Technologies SV Infeed Tension System is powered by patent-pending software and a servo-driven motor. Mounting one on top of any press provides industry-leading, fast-rotating, microscopically-precise control for any infeed web tension application, including Flexo, Gravure, Rotary Letterpress or Offset mechanical press.
…is what enables the SV Infeed Tension System to all but eliminate make-ready waste. Once the material is webbed-through the equipment and the tension is set, registration is locked-in and never changes, so operators can depend on the consistency of inline results time after time.
Run More Materials (even unsupported ones)
The SV's servo drive responds much faster than mechanically-driven systems, allowing it to modulate and self-correct in milliseconds. This virtually eliminates torque errors and allows many more types of materials to be run on an SV-upgraded press. In fact, many of our clients routinely use the SV to run unsupported materials (such as film) on their presses.
All conventional infeed systems (those with gearboxes, gears, belts and pulleys) begin wearing out from day one. As the amount of wear increases over time, problems inevitably occur, such as colors printed on the web beginning to drift between the print and die station(s). Having to replace parts can be unpredictable, expensive and lead to unproductive downtime.
Count on Servo Technologies for ZERO maintenance costs and skip the downtime. Since servo-based technology doesn't use gearboxes, gears, transducers, loadcells, belts, pulleys or other parts that need to be periodically replaced, our clients are extremely happy with the fact they don't have to worry about expensive repairs and downtime with the SV. We like to call this savings 'The Servo Technologies Payback.'
It's virtually impossible to re-register a pre-printed web if the infeed tension is not correct for first pass printing.
