Pressure Mapping: Nip Measurement

Ensuring uniform nip pressure across the entire surface area of those rolls is crucial to producing a reliably consistent product, maintaining productivity, minimizing machine downtime, reducing waste, and more.


Obtain a uniform nip impression for roll setup, maintenance, consistency, and longevity

Taking routine nip impressions can help identify:

  • Nip pressure and uniformity
  • Roller alignment
  • Proper machine setup
  • Crowning (under- or over-crowning)
  • Diameter variations
  • Deflections
  • Blanket & surface wear
