Rollers are the most common element in web machinery. Even so, a basic question such as what is the best size is not always properly addressed by builders and owners of machinery. If rollers are oversized, the capital costs increase. Also, the vital areas of drive and tension control might be made more challenging. If the rollers are undersized the consequences are even more serious: increased waste and delay. So how big should rollers be? What criteria should be satisfied in any application? How can you tell if the builder got the answer correct? These are the important questions that will be answered here.
