SMARTGuide - Proven solutions for optimal web guiding


The main areas of implementation for the SMARTGuide are the printing and extrusion branches. The BST pivoting frame guide (DF) is also especially suitable for short closed loops with low material stress. The sensors can be moved by optional motor-driven sensor adjustment, making the SmartGuide easy to use. This is especially beneficial for sensors that are difficult to access, web widths that frequently change, or special functions such as oscillation. The SMARTGuide can be used for all installation positions and threadings.
