The Web Handling Research Cr. (WHRC) at Oklahoma State University announces an applications oriented seminar on Web Handling. The seminar is a professional development program of the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology, set for March 3-5, 2014.
Those who would benefit from participating include technical managers, engineers, and technologists. Participants will gain an understanding of the methods used in the running and handling of continuous strips of flexible material through process machines.
Major topics to be presented include measurements, tensioning, and special tension topics, traction, wrinkling, converting, and winding. Special emphasis will be given to methods underlying the transport of webs through processes without incurring material defects.
