Machine functions such as unwind splices can be used to trigger the AF2 WebFlagger. The AF2 can also connect to virtually any inspection system.
The AF2 can be configured to “track” any input from a pushbutton, machine signal or inspection system. When the WebFlagger is configured this way, upon receiving the signal from an upstream device, it will wait to apply a flag until the web has traveled a preset distance. That is, until the defect arrives at the location of the WebFlagger.
If the process has a web width which varies, the AF2 WebFlagger can be mounted on an optional, adjustable slide base. This slide base allows the WebFlagger to be easily adjusted from side-to-side with a hand wheel, allowing it to be lined up to the edge of different width webs.
