Real-time roller adjustments for parallelism can then be made quickly and conveniently while the sensors are in the nip.
Now the youth with age 28 will be able to participate in the NIP.
In the nip the polymer is pressed against the substrate and simultaneously cooled by the chill roll.
Despite an important development of the extrusion coating process in the last decades, very few studies have been devoted to the coating step, and especially to the link between the thermomechanical phenomena occurring in the nip and the final properties of the coated substrate.
Cooling on the chill roll, imposed by an internal flow of cold water, begins in the nip and it is very important for the release: if the polymer is not solidified, it will stick on the chill roll and there will be release problems at the contact point with the stripper roll.
Grooving provides knuckles of high pressure, thought to aid in the transfer of water from the sheet to the felt under the action of the pressure in the nip.
This lowers the pressure in the nip, and it increases the time to go from zero pressure outside of the nip to maximum pressure near its centerline.
E-nip software analyzes the data received from the sensors in the nip and displays the measurement values in a variety of graphical formats for easy interpretation.
Some of the companies that have a three roll vertical calender feel they cannot feed a ribbon as it would have no way of staying in the nip, as gravity would cause it to fall.
For those than can handle it on the run, even this method loses its effectiveness if the water is removed in the nip and not at the uhle boxes.
In this study, we measured the effect of temperature and moisture content on the behavior of paper in the nip of a calender.
Earlier fundamental work on transverse flow in the nip of a roll press intuitively predicted similar intervals in the press nip.
Having the same pressure in the nips allows us to increase stiffness, but maintain the same gloss and smoothness levels.
