The main areas of application for the SmartGuide.DF are the printing and extrusion sectors. The BST rotating frame guide (DF) is also well suited for short control loops with low material demands. For ease of operation, the sensors can be moved by optional motor-driven sensor adjustment. This is especially beneficial for sensors that are difficult to move, web widths that frequently change, or special functions, like oscillation.

Modular Construction for Maximum Economy

Benefit from proven standards and an extensive range of equipment features. Through the SmartGuide.DF’s modular construction, customer-specific solutions can be carried out particularly efficiently. Simple retrofits are also possible at any time. The predefinition of characteristics ensures maximum transparency and simplifies technical clarifications.

The SmartGuide.DF is usable for all installation positions and wire threading.

If needed, the SmartGuide.DF can also be outfitted with AccuWeb components.
