  • The steering guide must be installed after a long, free-entering web span to prevent wrinkling. A web entry span of at least 2x the maximum web width must be maintained.
  • The pre-entry span must be shorter than the entry span.
  • The preferred exit span should be at least 1/2 to 1x the maximum web width.
  • The air-flow sensor must be securely mounted after the guide's exit roller (within the first 1/3 of the exit span).
  • At least one idler roller must be located between the exit roller and the process (i.e. printing) to avoid guiding directly into a process.
