Spiral Grooving for Air Entrapment Removal

Wrinkling has been a problem ever since man started running webs over rollers. Spreader rolls (rollers that are supposed to remove and/or prevent web wrinkling) can take many forms: Herringbone pattern, Chevron Groove pattern, Reverse Taper configuration, Grooved Rubber Cover, to name a few. Different types of spreader configurations work differently depending upon the process, the web material, the wrap angle, etc. The intent is to move the web to the outboard edges and tighten the center of the web, thereby removing or preventing any web wrinkling, prevent web interleaving, or to stretch the web.
