Nip Impression Paper


General Guidelines

Uneven Nipped Rollers cause web handling waste and yield deficiencies. Non-uniform nips usually lead to various production issues, some including wrinkles, web breaks and other troubles. For a maintenance engineer, identifying these problems can sometimes be difficult without the right tools.

These kits are also recommended for verification of any crown change due to processing over time. Provided below is an UNWAXED Nip Impression Kit good for higher temperature applications to determine common issues.  Click Below to Download instructions and purchase directly through our website.

Insert Paper Between Rolls:

Disengage the nip to allow our paper to be inserted. Not much room is needed: 1/8” is sufficient.

After the nip impression paper is nicely centered between the disengaged nip rolls, engage the nip at your standard pressure to make an impression.

Then release & remove the nip impression paper.


Lay nip impression paper on the lower roller, centered, then engage the nip system.
