Sentinel splice (joint) detection technology will detect any splice or joint that may exist within web-based processes, and can monitor up to 16 webs of material. It is applicable to manufacturing processes that require the culling out of splices or joints prior to shipment. As a control in subsequent conversion processes, it prevents damage to sensitive equipment, such as soft rolls, print heads, coater applicators, and print blankets. Immediate detection, rejection, and control of splices or joints create savings of up to tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Unaffected by printed surfaces, material colour, grade changes, and process speeds, the Sentinel guarantees 100% reliable detection every day; every shift. It is a self-calibrating system powered by 24 V DC.

The Sentinel can be connected directly to PLC control devices or interfaced into existing marking systems.
