The Web Handler in its simplest form provides a buffer loop between the printer and post-processor. Several options are available. The drive motor may be either AC powered or DC powered. In either the AC or DC versions, a web turner may be employed to invert the web.
An option to the basic version uses an AC torque motor to pull the web. The torque motor turns on when 6 ppi pulses are sent from the printer or when the Jog switch is pressed and turns off when the 6 ppi pulses stop or the Jog switch is released. No sensor tower is used with an AC drive motor. The AC motor is a torque motor that keeps the web under a slight tension and pulls as long as the printer is running. The motor torque is controlled by a transformer located in the electrical panel.
Some systems with high-speed printers and long web paths employ a larger (Hi-Torque) motor.
Web Inverter Option Either of the configurations above may include a frame with two additional diagonal bars and a vertical roller to invert the web.
