Precision flex material handling. Incorporate thin or sensitive flex materials into your production-oriented processing flow without sacrificing quality.

Maintain high-volume manufacturing with flex PCB materials.

RollMaster™ by Northfield Automation extracts maximum performance out of your ESI flexible circuit laser drilling tools. Blaze through material using ESI Model 5335’s maximum 1.5G stage acceleration with the RollMaster’s proprietary lightweight dancer design. Reduce your cycle time with RollMaster’s high-speed web indexing.  

RollMaster™ handles your delicate flexible circuit material with a soft touch. Its responsive ultra-light dancer design avoids web wrinkle and reduces web distortion with even your thinnest flexible circuit materials. Air turn bars enable no-touch, no-damage motion even at the highest speeds and acceleration.

RollMaster™ adjusts to your processing needs. Move and replace the handler without realignment to enable fast transitions between panel and R2R production. Quickly shift between roll core diameters with its unique roller design. Further configure the RollMaster™ with options such as splice stations, web cleaners, interleaf rollers and more.
