Converter Accessory Corporation (CAC) now designs and manufactures both standard and custom precision, air loaded nip roll modules. These air loaded nip modules allow precise side-to-side gap adjustment, independent of precise pneumatic pressure adjustment. They can be supplied as non driven or with complete drive systems. All feature plate steel framework and may be supplied with either dual side frames or cantilevered for narrow width applications.
CAC nip roll modules have proven to be effective with all types of webs. Typically they are used where independent tension zones are required. However, they are also utilized in laminating, coating and calendaring applications.
Nip modules are designed to be easily placed in existing machinery or engineered as part of a new machine build. Nip rolls are available with many types of coatings including chrome, plasma, nickel and Teflon. Rubber coverings, including silicone, neoprene, EPDM, urethane and others are also available. Roll materials may be ordered in aluminum, steel or brass. Finishes can range from ground mirror finish to course knurls. Roll diameters from 1” to 18” and roll faces from 3” to 120” are available.
