The Mechanics of Rollers combines web handling science with the application of rollers in a
comprehensive yet easy-to-use reference work. It covers design, application, and maintenance for rollers of
all sizes, shapes, and webs.
From the Preface: ...We can better understand the importance of rollers if we change our

designers, process engineers, and maintenance personnel in the paper, film, foil, nonwovens, textiles, and
