Horizontal Winders

Provides a cost and time-saving alternative by eliminating the slitting and rewinding steps for most processes, as well as scrap. This winder is widely used among hygienic film producers for applications such as diaper film, breathable film, and non-woven coating processes. High-speed, in-line slitting capabilities make the Horizontal a viable alternative to traditional turret winders. The winder's scrapless transfer mechanism generates high yields for extrusion applications by indexing the new core into a transfer position while the transfer is made without indexing the final roll. This is a faster, more efficient process when compared to standard turret winders which produce scrap during the index cycle of a full roll.

The winding system is a modular design incorporating the roll changer, turret, PLC and indexing servo controller into one package providing easy installation and stable operation at a high line speed. The single pivoting shaft design allows for manual or automatic roll removal and re-coring allowing for 45-second cycle times on hand wrap applications.

 

BMW S4 Series

Engineered to improve efficiencies for hand wrap and stretch film production. This winder is offered in two configurations; one with bleed trim (BT) for flexibility in winding roll sets and one with bleed trim less (BTL) for dedicated six up winding. The bleed trim less configuration reduces the cost of offline equipment and increases operations efficiency by up to 8 percent compared with conventional center support machines. This winder features an integrated automatic core and roll handling system and capabilities for producing six-up rolls on a 25-second cycle time, roll change to roll change. Based on upstream capabilities and 80 percent line uptime, the BMW S4 can produce up to 2,700 roll sets.

The BMW S4 is designed as a four spindle surface/center winder with center core shaft supports. This arrangement in conjunction with continuous, dual-surface-driven lay-on rolls enables production of "flat-tail" film rolls. Flat-tail rolls are wound from the top side of the web (the side against the chill roll) into the roll to produce inline-slit films that are virtually scrap-free from the core to the last wrap for both hand and machine wrap stretch films.

The winding system provides a European compact modular design incorporating the roll changer, two side-by-side turret assemblies, PLC and indexing servo controller into one package providing easy installation and stable operation at high line speeds. Automatic roll removal and re-coring is offered as an option. Other features include rigid core shaft supports, easy start bleed trim assemblies, and an isolation pull roll.

 

BMW 2 Dual Pivot Series

Engineered for stretch film applications of 4.3 and 4.8 meters (14 and 16 feet). This machine series is a cost effective solution incorporating a single turret assembly compared to other machines which utilize two separate turret assemblies. The winding system is a modular design incorporating the roll changer, turret, PLC, and indexing servo controller into one package providing easy installation and stable operation at high line speed. The dual pivoting shaft design allows for manual roll removal or optional automatic roll removal and re-coring on the 4.3 meter (14 ft.) configuration allowing for 50 second cycle times on hand wrap applications. Both configurations can be mounted on linear slides allowing the winder to side shift for slit lane width changes.

 

Combi Cast Systems

Agricultural Film Winder

This winder is a single turret winder with dancer tension control and AC drives. The primary advantage of this design is that it features a servo driven shear type knife assembly that cuts through multiple folded layers of heavy film. It can be run in shafted or shaftless mode with moveable turret arms using cardboard cores for a small roll, high frequency changeover operation. Speeds are typically in the 150 fpm (46 mpm) range, but can go as high as 300 fpm (92 mpm) with a maximum roll diameter of 24 inches (600mm).
