AccuWeb, Inc. is best known for pioneering the compensated ultrasonic edge detection system. This technology was patented in 1988 and has been improved and refined over the years.
Compensated ultrasonic detection is a process in which the detection signal is monitored by a micro-controller that automatically compensates the guide point for changes in process contaminates, temperature, humidity and air turbulence. Detection systems are also available for hazardous locations and temperatures up to 500ºF using this technology. Infrared optical detection is used for vacuum applications and porous materials that are less than 10% acoustically opaque.
AccuWeb's corporate headquarters and central manufacturing facility is located in Madison, Wisconsin. The new 30,000 square foot plant was designed for manufacturing digital electronic assemblies. Web guide frames with roll face width up to 240 inches are assembled in the facility. Custom-made guide frames using stainless steel, nickel plating and special roll coatings can be designed to meet customer requirements. CAD capabilities enable fast turnaround for large, complex projects. Access to CNC machine tools and state-of-the-art heat and surface treatment equipment qualify AccuWeb as a world class manufacturer.
International sales and application centers are located in Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Holland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Taiwan, United Kingdom (England) and Venezuela.
