PRIMARY FILM SLITTER REWINDERS

Jade Series Slitter Rewinders
Innovative technology for the finest roll quality available

The design of the Jade series is to improve the winding quality of all films at high speeds, and to add greater flexibility on machine setup. Based on a new winding principle, the rewind stations are able to move independently on the same rewind beam, allowing our end user to wind with different core sizes on the same rewind beam. The rewind stations also move linearly away from the contact roller as the rewind diameter increase, which allows excellent finished roll profiles, both in tension and edge quality.

Tension isolation is through our vacuum roller. Our vacuum roller technology is proven to give superior tension isolation without scratching or marking the most delicate of films, and is totally maintenance free.

The Jade series is a total electric operation, no hydraulics are used throughout the machine, making it a total clean operation.

LABELSTOCK/PAPER SLITTER REWINDERS

For paper and labelstock producers, ASHE are able to offer a range of machines to suit.

Our Labelstock slitter rewinder is based on our Jade series of slitting machines. With centre surface capabilities the machine is able to wind with individual rewind stations, a full width differential rewind shaft, or with an airshaft. The shaftless or shafted rewinding system both utilise a linear tracking system away from the contact roller to give a perfect finished roll, in profile and tension.

As with all ASHE machines, our vacuum roller is utilised on the machine to give us perfect tension isolation and does not scratch or deform the most sensitive of labelstocks.

A range of options, such as automatic unloading systems are available on the machine with online roll wrapping, and weighing. Other options such as knife positioning systems, web cleaners etc are all available on the machine.

We are also able to produce a range of two drum surface winders, for paper mills and paper converters. We are able to produce such machines with rewind diameters of up to 1800mm.

DIAMOND DUPLEX SLITTER REWINDER

Peak productivity to suit every budget

The Diamond model has been designed to be a compact, cost effective solution whilst keeping production requirements in mind. The machine has been based on our renowned Sapphire range of machines, and therefore has the flexibility to be able to slit and rewind most products at high speeds.

The machine is available in various configurations and all options within ASHE’s range are available to add onto the machine. The machine uses the ASHE vacuum roller technology and is hydraulic free, making it a total clean operation.

The machine is supplied in a ‘one piece’ configuration, therefore making shipping and installation easy.

About us

Company details

Over 30 years’ engineering excellence and still going strong
ASHE Converting Equipment is a family owned company, established in 1976.  We are now a global manufacturer and supplier of specialist state of the art slitting and rewinding machinery for the film, paper and allied web industries.

The business was started with 3 people originally manufacturing Drive Control Systems. We were one of the first companies to develop a fully reversible rewinding machine. It was a natural progression for ASHE to extend the range into slitting and rewinding machinery.

We now manufacture a complete range of slitting and rewinding machinery from widths of 300mm up to a maximum of 8.7m.

Our manufacturing base continues to be in Ipswich, United Kingdom, with subsidiaries in the USA and China. We have a workforce totalling approximately 75 personnel. We have a strong team of mechanical engineers who all work on a modern 3D Cad system, and work alongside a team of software / electrical engineers, who are dedicated to writing all software for our machines only.

Our plant in Ipswich is equipped with an array of machine tools, where up to 80% of machine parts are manufactured in house. This gives us huge flexibility in the range that we are able to build, and also being able to engineer a machine, to suit what the customer wants. It also enables us to guarantee precision of parts that are going onto the machine.

The future of converting technology
Our superior level of technical expertise is reflected in the standard of technology you’ll find in all of our machines. We are working tirelessly to continually develop products that will keep you at the forefront of technology, giving you a wide range of standard products, as well as bespoke converting equipment.

Add to this the support of our electronics division and you’re guaranteed to enjoy first class machines with a full back up service, wherever you are in the world.
