The Web Handling Research Center (WHRC) at Oklahoma State University announces an applications oriented seminar on Web Handling. Fundamental principles and analytical tools will be the focus. The seminar is a professional development program of the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology.

Those who would benefit from participating include technical managers, engineers, and technologists, including those who have recently taken a position where web processing and handling are important. Participants will gain an understanding of the physical and analytical methods used in the running and handling of continuous strips of flexible material through process machines.

Major topics to be presented include measurements, tensioning, speed and tension control, web-roller traction, converting, tracking, wrinkling, and winding. Special emphasis will be given to methods underlying the transport of webs through processes without incurring material defects.  Participants will see examples of how web handling problems are studied during a tour of the extensive laboratories in Web Handling Research Center.
