WHC Blog: Is it the winder's fault?

By Dr. David R. Roisum

What makes this a great question, you ask?

First, winding defects of all types, there are more than 100 types, are usually in the top three causes of waste, delay and customer complaints in most plants.

Second, winding is universal in web-to-roll, roll-to-roll and roll-to-sheet plants.

Third, it is not so easy to give a short simple answer, but I will try my best here.

Finally, more than any others in this series of questions, we have lots of customer-supplier finger-pointing. This leads to confusion, frustration, and delay.
