Fold and edge sensor

Fold and edge sensor

The fold and edge sensor detects folds and edges in two predetermined directions.

The determination of the track position in the longitudinal and transverse direction is therefore possible. The video clip shows the fold detection with track control. The foldin and edge sensor is characterized by the following features:

  • Fold and edge detection regardless of color, fonts, patterns or textures
  • Insensitive to vibrations or fluttering of the web
  • Folding and edge detection only in the preset directions
  • Simultaneous detection in two directions
  • Fold detection up to 60m/sec web speed
