Fife Symat 25 Offset Pivot Guide

The Symat 25 is a compact, versatile electromechanical system engineered for narrow-web applications where short entry and exit spans are required. This offset pivot guide is available with three standard roller faces: 160.0 mm (6.30 inches), 200.2 mm (7.88 inches), and 250 mm (9.84 inches). The same dimensions are available for guide spans, and the maximum allowed tension is 156 or 200 N (35 or 45 lbs), depending on wrap style used.

Designed with a cast base and precision milled parts, the durable Symat 25 increases productivity by minimizing downtime and waste. Depending on your needs and sensor(s) selected, this guide provides precise, reliable operation in edge, center, or line guide applications. Optional Servo-Center provides automatic guide centering to speed the setup and threading process.
