PCT Engineered Systems’ newly patented electron beam (EB) processing equipment Integrated Shield Roll technology is now available. This technology utilizes an innovative roll design that supports the web while simultaneously serving as a functional part of the EB system’s shielding. Combining these functions greatly simplifies the machine design and eliminates the need for a separate enclosure around the roll, including precise web handling and presentation of the substrate to the electron beam; precise temperature control during the curing or cross-linking process; and compact machine footprint compatible with low web pass heights. The machine’s simplified cleaning and maintenance, reduced nitrogen inerting costs, and enhanced process integration by the addition of nips, coating heads, or casting directly on the exposed roll surface make this a great EB choice.
