Jade Primary Film Slitter Rewinders

Innovative technology for the finest roll quality available

This machine improves the winding quality of film at high speeds. Mounted on precision linear slides, the rewind stations move independently, horizontally and away from the layon/surface rollers as the rewind roll increases in diameter.

Contact is maintained through the diameter build up which ensures excellent finished roll quality. Tension isolation is controlled through a vacuum pull roller as opposed to nip rollers and S wraps.

 

Features and benefits:

- Maximum speed 1200m/min for optimum productivity

- Perfect tension isolation eliminates creasing and wrinkling even on the most sensitive materials

- All electrical operation makes it the hygienic choice

- Easy to install and maintain

- State of the art AC digital vector drives mounted locally to save space

- Wind different diameters or core sizes on a single run on the same rewind beam

- Minimise downtime using one common layon roller

- Fully automated option

- Optional automatic knife and arm positioning available

 

Machine specifications:

- Maximum speed 1200m/min

- Machine width from 3.5m to 8.7m

- Rewind diameter up to 1200mm

- Rewind core 76mm+

- Unwind diameter from 1000mm to 2000mm

- Unwind core size 76mm+ to suit your needs

- Razor in air/groove or rotary shear slitting

- Able to handle all filmic substrates
