"Whisper Quiet" Web-On-Air Advanced Air Bar & Turn Bar Systems
Proven uses for our Web-On-Air bars include:
Flotation bar , air turns , air bearings , frictionless bearing , air turn bar , air idler , turn bars
Features and Benefits:
Reduces noise levels and associated operator fatigue ( "whisper quiet" operation ).
Eliminates weaving of web, improves front to back registration
Reduces air consumption and compressor cycles (0.03CFM / sq.inch of mesh coverage at 20psi).
Example: a pair of bars designed to turn a web of 10" width use approximately 4 CFM.
Consistent web floatation across bar length
Reduces web abrasion, and eliminates scratching of web materials common with conventional bars
Eliminates the need to mask, seal or plug exposed part of air bars when running narrower webs
