An air turn is a component added to a web when the web must be turned in some way without physical contact. It is in effect a no contact idler roller. Carpe Diem has the perfect air turn utilizing its vacuum rollers in a slightly different configuration to become air turns. In fact, the porous material that normally grabs the web as vacuum is pulled becomes a superb medium to restrict and filter air flow while providing a simple air bearing to frictionlessly levitate the web over the roller. Importantly, Carpe Diem air turns use very little air while exhibiting high performance.
