U.S. Automation has been protecting presses around the world from web breaks for over a decade. WebMax provides the ultimate in press web break detection for commercial and newspaper applications. Using state-of-the art, high-frequency ultrasonic sensors to detect the presence of web, WebMax is custom designed for your specific press application.
WebMax is a fully automatic "hands-off" control system that arms the web detection sensors at preset press speed points. Once a web break is detected, WebMax stops the press and "fires" the web severers before costly cylinder damage can occur from web wrap-ups. The system will then reset itself automatically for the next press run.
