Web forming processes represent a wide class of industrial processes with relevance in many different production areas such as paper making, plastic film extrusion, steel rolling, coating and laminating.

These are large scale processes, involving complex machinery, which exhibit some challenging difficulties for the design of efficient control systems. Web forming processes are multivariable high dimensional systems which must operate subject to tight constraints.

These systems are a quintessential example of a difficult industrial control problem and are therefore an ideal case study for a virtual laboratory.
