Close-up image of the in-running nip end feed roller gap. This is a guarded in-running nip end feed roller. Rolls of plastic sheet that have been loaded on the roll stand are threaded by the worker to the machine through end feed rollers. End feed rollers are guarded or opened to avoid a wide range of injuries that occur from hazards created by the movement of machine parts and/or roll stock.
