Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements

Authors:  Dr. David Roisum and Dr. J. K. Good

Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements is the definitive book on the science of winding written by noted experts Dr. David Roisum and Dr. JK Good. This three-part book (with supplemental CD) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery commonly found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; describes how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; and discusses almost every method for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality. The book describes how and why many wound roll defects occur. In more than a few cases, it even describes when defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application. In these cases we have science at its best, a predictive tool. A CD with an easy-to-run winding model is included with every book. However, one need not be a scientist to appreciate and use this text. Much of it is written in everyday language describing the machines we work with, the defects we see and the many measures of roll quality. It is a book that most plants with a winding department would want to have.

The Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements is one of three books in Dave Roisum’s Mechanics Trilogy. The Mechanics of Rollers and The Mechanics of Web Handling are also available from TAPPI PRESS.

    About the Author:

    David R. Roisum, Ph.D. is president and senior consultant of Finishing Technologies, Inc. in Neenah, Wisconsin. He has nearly two decades of experience in the design, development and troubleshooting of web machinery and was the recipient of TAPPI’s 1990 Finishing and Converting Division Award. Dr. Roisum’s common sense approach to the complex science of web handling makes him a popular lecturer to industry and academia alike. His skill at translating highly complex information into practical reference has also served him well as a speaker at more than a dozen international conferences, as consulting editor for Converting Magazine and as a frequent contributor to TAPPI JOURNAL.
