Roller Alignment Instruments

Never before has it been this easy to measure your roller alignment!

DigiNip® is a powerful new system that allows the quick and easy diagnosis of roller conditions – the nip contact point. With minimal investment and no prior experience a user can quickly and accurately record spot nip (contact point between rollers) width at any section of your web or sheetfed process. DigiNip®’s sensing capability is as sensitive as it’s case is durable – its ergonomic shell is impact hardened and water resistant.

No more time consuming and inaccurate nip measurements with carbon paper. Now nip readings can be determined instantaneously and adjustments made while the sensor is between your rolls! DigiNip® is also economical, just like your carbon paper; the sensor elements that connect into the DigNip® device are designed to provide thousands of readings before replacement by the user is necessary.

Have you ever needed to evaluate pressure or force between two touching or mating surfaces? Previously, your only alternatives were strain gauges and load cells, that are both time consuming and difficult to interface. Now with the advent of our disposable one-time use pressure film, evaluating surface contact pressure distribution and magnitude is accurate, quick and highly economical.
