Traditional methods for measurement of Roll hardness have many short comings. Some of the most common issues I've discussed with those responsible for roll condition; operator dependent operation, frequency of service or repair and most often, difficulties in obtaining a reliable CD profile of the roll under test. By utilizing sound physics practices and high speed electronics we can finally have operator independence and reliable profile capabilities with robust data collection to trouble shoot and optimize web product roll condition.
