Cracks along the edges of a moving web can cause lengthy downtime on subsequent processes such as a coater, re-winder or re-reeler in a paper mill. An edge crack or fold-over can hang-up on a slitter knife causing a blow-up which results in time consuming, costly clean-ups. When the location of every edge crack in a jumbo roll of paper is known then corrective actions can be taken by downstream operators to prevent the blow-up. Knowing when cracks are occurring on the paper machine can also provide Machine Tenders with valuable information that will help them eliminate the source of the cracks. A RYECO Edge Crack Detection System will eliminate all downtime in a paper line caused by edge cracks.
