About Coast Controls

Coast Controls Manufactures the World’s Only All-Air Driven Web Guiding System

At Coast Controls, we are proud to be leaders in the web guiding industry by producing the only low-pressure, all-air web guide. Our systems are easy to use, pinpoint accurate, and are powered 100% by low-pressure air without the use of electricity, electronic components, or hydraulics. Our guiding system incorporates an air flow sensor, air cylinder, and a proportional servo controller to make sure that your materials are properly aligned. Because our systems do not rely on electricity, motors, switches, hydraulics, or electronics, they are incredibly safe and are inherently explosion proof. We also offer an exceptional 10-year warranty and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Coast Controls’ Guiding Systems Work with a Number of Industries

Coast Controls’ all-air converting equipment works with a wide range of materials such as cloth, paper, plastic film, and label stock. Because of this, our guiding systems have become integral to the operation of many converting industries, including:

  • Paper and Plastic Bags
  • Envelope Manufacturers
  • Label Manufacturers
  • Flexographic Printing
  • Tire and Rubber Manufacturers
  • Extruded Plastic Film
  • Flexible Packaging Companies
  • Coating and Laminating
  • Non-Wovens
  • Die Cutting
  • Medical Packaging
  • Food Packaging
  • Metalized Film
  • Slitting
  • And much more

In addition, many equipment manufacturers incorporate our products into their machines. Coast Controls web guides have been adapted to various web processing lines, such as paper and plastic bag machines, envelope machines, multi-wall tubers, packing machines, printing presses, laminators, slitter machines, plastic film extruders, coating machines, and more.

To make sure our web guides fit into your guiding application, we use SolidWorks 3D Software. This allows us to get the web guide design correct before it goes to manufacturing, assuring proper fit and function, thus reducing possible design flaws. We stock most standard guiding systems, but we can also create custom guiding packages designed to fit your machine. Lead times coincide with guide size and the type of web guide specified.

We are located in a state-of-the-art facility in Sarasota, FL, and we are proud to offer the latest in technology and equipment, including CNC machining centers.
