WTI Web Guides

Whether it’s a spare part for your existing WTI system or you need a custom web guide for your new application, Precision Process can assist you with your WTI Web Guide needs. WTI Web Guides and components are used in a variety of applications: Business Forms Press, Commercial Offset & Rotogravure Printing, Package Printing and Flexible Packaging, as well as Custom Designed Web Guiding Systems.

A WTI Web Guide will maintain the alignment accuracy of your substrate into your manufacturing process thereby increasing production and reducing waste. An electronic feedback system monitors and corrects edge position 4 times faster than pneumatic systems. Accuracy improves from ±015" to ±003" or better. Maintenance decreases in the absence of fluids, filters, etc.

Learn more about the WTI Web Guide features including custom applications, Commercial Offset and Rotogravure Printing, Business Form Applications, Package Printing and Flexible Packaging, EGS-2 or 2T Control Module, the Electromotive Drive, IR-2 Infrared Edge Sensors, and the Smart Box Remote Station.
