Installation and performance of classical web guides

Shelton, J. J.
Abstract
This paper depicts proper installations of conventional web guides and examines the theory of web mechanics and the theory of automatic control as foundations for the practice of web guiding. Conditions which would damage the web are quantified. The adverse effects of interaction of spans and avoidance of such interaction are discussed.
Limitations to accuracy of conventional web guides are discussed. Unusual but proven variations for satisfying special needs are presented.
