Maxcess Launches the FIFE-500 MAX Web Guiding System

A major upgrade to the legacy FIFE-500, the FIFE-500 MAX was designed from the ground up to offer more features and more value

Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, has unveiled the FIFE-500 MAX web guiding system. Ideal for nonwoven, tag and label, battery converting and numerous other narrow web applications, the FIFE-500 MAX packs in more features while improving accuracy and throughput.

“We took the FIFE-500, which has been an industry favorite for more than a decade and asked our customers what they wanted in a next-generation guiding system,” said Darren Irons, Global Product Manager for Fife and MAGPOWR. “Our biggest takeaway was that our customers want robust networking options, like Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, CC-Link and more. We were able to pack in these features at a lower price point as our previous FIFE-500, giving our customers more features and ultimately more value.”

Featuring a five-inch touchscreen interface with multiple languages, newly designed sensors for enhanced resolution and accuracy, a smoother 8-pole motor for better guiding at slow speeds and an all-new modern design, the FIFE-500 MAX ushers in the next-generation of guiding from Fife, the company who invented the first web guide back in 1939. The FIFE-500 MAX can accommodate web widths up to 600 mm, with maximum tension up to 400 N. Fife will be releasing larger sizes of the FIFE-500 MAX, up to 900 mm and 800 N, in Q4 of 2022.
