Web Handling Fundamentals Workshop
New College Institute
191 Fayette Street
Martinsville, VA 24112
Web handling is a process engineering discipline focusing on improving productivity and reducing waste
of product made from papers, films, foils, nonwovens, textiles, or any thin, continuous material.
Many manufacturing trends create new challenges for web handling and winding, including thinner,
wider, or more delicate products, faster or more integrated processes, and ultra-clean or hazardous
environments – all increasing the potential for web handling defects. Learning to handle these materials,
processes, and environmental challenges will provide your company with a competitive advantage.
This five-day workshop will cover key concepts to optimize your equipment and process designs;
practical steps to eliminate waste from breaks, deformation, scratches, alignment errors, wrinkles, and roll
defects. This workshop will be held at the New College Institute in Martinsville, VA. The seminar will be
held in classroom 107 and will be complemented with labs in the Academic Coater Bay where web
handling principles will be demonstrated.
Unlike any other option in web handling education, this workshop provides one-of-a-kind training that
combines classroom seminars with on-machine demonstrations.
