Webex Launches Expander Roll For Web Handling

Wis.-based Webex Inc. has developed an expanding web-handling roller that removes wrinkles during
winding, slitting, coating, laminating and embossing, among other web-handling processes. The
Expander Roll features elastic cords on the roll face and specially engineered cams that stretch
the cords as the web travels over them, pulling from the webs center to the outer edges, thereby
removing wrinkles, according to the company. The roll also is available with a drive pulley for
low-tension applications.
