Splicer and Infeed Troubleshooting - Web Wander

Description:  Wander can begin at different places on the press.  This refers to web wander that originates between the splicer and infeed.

Problem:  Improper tension.
Solution:  Web wander is almost always tension related.  Adjust tension up or down until it stabilizes.

Problem:  Poor paper quality.
Solution:  Try another position on the jumbo of the paper roll and make a comparison.

Problem:  Idler rollers are not trammed properly.
Solution:  Rollers that are not properly aligned will cause one side of the web to go baggy.  This in turn will cause wrinkles and web breaks.  Check all rollers carefully to ensure they are level and trammed.
