DARMSTADT, GERMANY | GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme demonstrated the automated production of wrapped small rolls (cash register, ATM, etc.) at drupa 2012, utilizing the fully automatic KPW3 two-drum slitter/winder. The KPW3 processes coated,) uncoated, and thermal papers to a working width of 63 in. (1,600 mm) at a speed to 1,960 fpm (600 mpm). The minimum slitting width, is 1.5 in. (37 mm).
Company says the KPW3 has fast responsive web tension control, ensures optimal tension of the paper throughout the entire winding process, and the spreader roller before the slitting unit ensures wrinkle-free feeding of the paper web and perfect finished roll separation. After reaching the pre-set paper length, the paper is automatically cut by a cross-cutter, before an automatic gluing system seals the tails of the rolls. The rolls are then transported into the packaging unit. A core loader simultaneously charges the rewind shaft with new cores before the next winding cycle starts.
Automatic winder can produce 20,000 finished rolls (3.125 in. x 260 ft or 80 x 80 mm) during an 8-hr shift. Machine can produce small rolls and use rewind cores to 1 in. dia.
