Reel Alignments

Misaligned components within your splicer can cause sheet wrinkles, sheet breaks and improperly wound reel sets. All of these issues result in lost production and lost profit. Misalignment of reel components can also lead to hardware failure. To ensure your splicer is operating at peak performance, it is important to perform alignment audits during routine maintenance checks. An alignment audit will determine:

- Alignment condition of the reel drum
- Alignment condition of reel primary arms throughout their length of travel
- Alignment condition of reel rails

Often, misalignment issues can be detected and corrected during these outages. Proper alignment of components will ensure efficient sheet transfer, reel turn-up and a properly wound sheet. By ensuring all reel components are properly aligned, your facility can benefit from improved production, increased machine speeds and higher profits.
