VSD for wind/unwind applications

  Mitsubishi’s wind/unwind inverter provides control technology for continuous roll-to-roll applications. It is for the processing of a web (sheet of a paper, film, or other material) from the unwinding roll to the winding roll. Moreover, it features stable winding and unwinding performance, and ease of start-up and adjustment. The FR-A800-R2R is a dedicated roll-to-roll […]
