When unwinding a web one must consider how the end of the expiring roll of web will be spliced to the beginning of the new roll of web. This includes consideration of what method is most suited for combining the webs including taping, sewing and welding; whether the splice will be formed with the web stopped or moving; what method is most suitable for cutting the expiring web; and whether a lap or butt splice will be formed. We will address these topics as well as several associated subjects in this presentation.
