Slitter-rewinders

Slitting benches

For many years now, Decoup+® has been involved in designing and manufacturing of ultrasonic cutting solutions for various applications. Each day, our team of technical experts works in close collaboration with major machine manufacturers. Thanks to this partnership we have now gained strong market position notably in FIBC industries.

FIBC industries are constantly requiring resistant, hygienic, eco-friendly and new solutions for PP fabrics cutting-sealing purposes. Because it performs clean and strong edges without overthickness nor burning, ultrasonic cutting technology has been used for many years now and is today well introduced in all steps of big bag manufacturing process mainly for cutting, sealing operations.

Our famous and well-known STAR devices have been used worldwide for more than 30 years for PP ultrasonic welding and cutting on flat or circular weaving loom. Our standard Star devices are designed to work at loom speed, to perform clean, resistant but smooth edges allowing an easy handling and immediate use of the fabric without any risk of problems in finishing operations (contamination, needle breakage, unusable fabric due to overthickness, yellowing, burns…). The process on loom is a two steps’ operation:

The first step consists in a creation of an ultrasonic welded track on the fabric (maximum 27mm width).
The second step is a mechanical cut in the middle of the welded track.

Moreover, we offer high-tech reference equipment to the best market price!

Up to now, continuous ultrasonic cutting/sealing was only available on weaving loom for low or medium speed (adapted to weaving loom speed). But as an expert of ultrasonic technology and thanks to our complete mastering of ultrasonic equipment, we have developed a new solution.

We are now able to offer the ultrasonic solution to reach higher speeds (off line) as one of the main requirements is to gain productivity while keeping the same quality. Thanks to newest development and an adapted range of tools, we now propose a solution to cut fabrics from 70 to 250 gsm at high speed on your off-line machines. Based on our usual combined cutting technology, this process is still a 2 steps’ operation, but, consisting in both ultrasonic welding and ultrasonic cutting. Our solution grants the same benefits in terms of edge resistance, cleanliness and softness than with the standard Star technology, but allows working up to 50 m/min (depending on fabric gsm).

Manual ultrasonic cutting devices

Decoup+® also proposes a range of handheld ultrasonic devices to perform small straight cutting operations, shape cutting operations or cut-to-length operations

Our P, T handheld devices are light, ergonomic but also proven solutions
Our Mini press is a sturdy but compact and flexible workstation easy to install and to use.

Decoup+® proposes an industrial range of:

Ultrasonic cutting solutions
Ultrasonic welding solutions
Handheld devices
Units to be integrated

Ultrasonic splicing technology for plastic films

We have developed a proven and accurate technology to produce unequalled quality joins, without any colour fading nor burns. This consists in an ultrasonic cutting operation which splices two layers together. Depending on your needs, this 1st step can be combined with ultrasonic ironing which enables the splice to almost recover the original characteristics of the web. Designed to be integrated onto existing lines, our modules are ergonomic and compact. The equipment is available either for narrow webs (up to 800 mm) as a module to be fitted on a machine or doctor machine; or for wide webs (up to 3 000 mm) as a splicing bench to be fitted on line.

Manual ultrasonic cutting and sealing devices

We proposed a range of handheld ultrasonic devices to perform spot welding operations or press welding operations, for plastic box closure for example…

Our P, T handheld devices are light, ergonomic but also proven solutions
Our Mini press is a sturdy but compact and flexible workstation easy to install and to use.

Come with your products on our stand to perform trials with our handheld devices.

Rolls

Roll Concept®, we don’t supply simple roller!

For more than 20 years now, Roll Concept® designs and manufactures the patented ALVEOTUBE® product line.

This eco-solution is the best aluminium compromise on the market between bending resistance and low inertia, and allows decreasing electrical power need and consumption during line speed-up phases.

Specially engineered to improve process performance and increase line speed on web handling and converting industry, our lightweight precision rollers and cores ensure to users easy installation, easy handling and durability!

Our range includes simple profile but also ready to run solutions with a large choice of finishing and coatings:

- Industrial rollers: our idler rolls guide and transfer the web at different steps of the production run: they keep a constant tension on the webs thanks to reduced friction and perfect rotation. Their light weight and the unique alveolar structure enable to combine bending strength and resistance to corrosion. Customized in different diameters and lengths, our rolls are ready to be installed!

- Our Alveotube® Winding cores guarantee top quality winding even at high speed and are easily handled by the operators. Reusable, resistant to corrosion, long-lasting, ergonomic, secure and available in many diameters and lengths, our winding cores are turnkey solutions.

- Universal core adaptor Corexal® to transform in few seconds a 3’’ expanding shaft into a 6’’ one. Air or mechanical shafts which support cardboard winding cores during winding operations have usually an internal diameter of 3˝ (76.2 mm). But generally it’s necessary to rewind on 6˝ internal diameter winding cores (152.4mm). Air shafts today solutions need adaptation, pneumatic supply; they are heavy and fragile… Roll Concept® has developed a universal core adaptor: this mechanical solution allows to wind on a 6˝ winding core while using a 3˝ shaft, without any electrical, air, water, mounting, tools or internal diameter modification. When the 3’’ shaft is inflated, it opens the adaptor allowing supporting the 6’’ cardboard winding cores. After air shaft deflating, a spring allows to remove the cardboard winding core. Such as all Roll Concept’s product range, Corexal® could be provided in various lengths, with different surface finishes to fulfil customer’s needs.

- Thermal rollers: Our alveolar structure is perfectly adapted to fluid circulation. Thanks to their design our ALVEOTUBE® profiles can be used to have cold fluid (air or water) passing through the alveolus. There is no standard roller version. Applications are always specific and adapted to customer’s needs, but the advantages are always the same:

Excellent thermal transfer thanks to the thin skin and aluminium structure
50% less weight compared with a double casing steel roller
Low inertia when full
