The SmartGuide.SF corrects the lateral offset of running webs. In combination with various sensors, selected according to the material to be controlled, the actuator turns around an imaginary pivot at the entry side and transfers the web to the exit side in the correct position. The proportional/integral control algorithm permits a highly accurate and speed-independent web edge or center-line guiding of the web.
