Web widths up to 26 inches (660.4 mm)

Rigid Displacement Guides (RDG5) feature a 5 inch (127) actuator and either a two or more roller configuration and are designed for "mid-size" web applications up to 26 inches (660.4) which are ideal for compact spaces. Each RDG5 system is engineered with a 2-point suspension system which offers the ultimate in support and heavy-duty thick anodized aluminum construction offers the best mid-sized guide rigidity that is built to withstand the most rigorous environments. Applications include (but not limited to) business forms, food packaging, medical & pharmaceutical packaging, plastic film, slitting & rewinding, coating, laminating, inspection machines and other "mid-size" web applications where alignment of the web is crucial. No Electricity! No Electronics! No Hydraulics! The RDG5 Series web guides are easy to install and setup.

  • Entry and exit spans must be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the plane of the guide's motion.
  • Web must enter and exit the guide at a 90° angle. Guide span must be approximately 1\2 - 1x’s the maximum web width.
  • The air-flow (edge) sensor must be securely mounted after the guide’s exit roller and within the first one-third of the exit span.
  • At least one idler roller must be located between the exiting guide roller and the process (printing, laminating, etc.).
