Web guiding actuators - Outstanding position control for every need

Web Guiding Actuators

Electric motor-driven actuators correct the position of the web precisely and almost instantaneously. The actuators are used wherever extremely quick reactions to changes in web position are required. The actuators can be connected directly to the controller. The ready-to-connect design enables quick, maintenance-free and low-cost installation, which is also advantageous in the retrofitting of existing systems.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Web Guiding Actuator

When choosing linear motion actuators, there are several factors to take into account, including:

  • The speed of the web line

  • The guide structure weight and roll weight

  • Friction tolerance

  • Break away force

  • The desired acceleration

These factors must be properly accounted for to ensure seamless corrective motion. BST's web guiding actuators allow for linear and curved corrections, offering a rapid response time that maximizes efficiency and ensures minimal downtime.

If you're unsure which actuator to use, contact us. One of our team members will discuss your current configuration and help you identify an actuator that offers optimal performance.

When you choose BST for your electric linear actuators and rotary actuators, you can feel confident you're buying innovative and reliable products and receiving top-quality support.

Our commitment doesn't end with the delivery of your web-guiding actuators. We provide installation and retrofit support, help you choose the right actuator for your needs and offer troubleshooting assistance as required.
