Cantilevered Slitter Rewinder

Front View


The slitter shown was produced for our customer, who was looking to improve finished product quality and also looking to improve and increase output, their existing slitter required a lot of manual handling to remove the finished rolls, and re-core for the next run, also the loading of the unwind roll was difficult and laborious.

Most of their business was relatively short rewind runs with multiple narrow web width rolls.

This machine was designed to fulfil the requirement of improving the finished roll quality and also increasing productivity.

Reported back from the customer only this week is that the rolls being produced are far superior than anything previously achieved, and that productivity output has increased by 75%  and the machine has only been in operation for 2 weeks, so this would be expected to increase as there systems and setup become more streamlined. Always good to have really positive feedback.

Auto Splice Duplex Rewind
Non Turret Type

These non-turret shaft with automatic flying splice rewinders has recently been developed to be supplied one of our gravure printing machines, this unit has a maximum web width of 650mm and rewinding diameter for 800mm the running / printing speed of the machine is 200mpm.

We also have these units as available as an option on our narrow web coating and laminating machines.

These twin shaft fixed rewinding units allow for continuous running and web transfer write up web without any down time, increasing throughput and productivity, and a significant reduction of waste materials during the slow down / stop and web transfer on standard rewinding units.

These automatic splice rewinding units are very competitively priced and generally more compact than the more expensive options of using the auto – turret rewind – splice machine.

Our fixed shaft auto transfer units can also be retro-fitted as an upgrade onto most existing narrow web converting machines.

Hot Pin Perforation Unit

Two of these units have just recently been sold to a multinational company, the first unit is for their plant in China and the second for their plant in the UK.  Additional orders are expected in the near future.

Hot-Pin perforation allows a poly-based material to be permeated with a hole that will not close up, and is the perforation method of choice in applications where aesthetics are key. The hole that is left by a hot perforation needle is re-enforced by a neat, molten ring of material that surrounds the hole. Hot needle perforation is used in a wide variety of applications. Perforations can be made in register or in a continuous basis.

Hot Perforation is used generally for the following products

– Bakery good packaging film
– Fresh-cut flower wrapping film
– Hygiene and Medical Industries
– Other food packaging
– Other operations that require moisture, vapour or air flow control

These hot pin machines can be made up to 2000mm wide as standard. Custom machines can be manufactured for large diameter rollers in the case of high speed applications or applications that demand greater width to overcome roller deflection.

Our perforators can be made to bolt into existing lines, or we can manufacture them with unwind and rewinds for stand alone operation.

A large paper converter in the ASIA has bought one of our two drum slitter rewinders the machine has a web width of 2500mm with rewind diameter of 1500mm, running speed of 800 MPM.

These winder are usually high speed converting machines, the two-drum surface rewinders typically uses the following method for controlling roll density. Sufficient wrap around the drum so that the web tension has little effect on the roll hardness when winding non-extensible product.

Rewind roll hardness and profile are achieved by nip control on the rider roll pressure and torque control between the surface drums. Two-drum surface winders are normally used as high speed rewind slitters for grades such as papers and boards, nonwoven materials.
