Linear roll change processes for optimal winding of sensitive materials.
The SMBK Linear Winder is used to wind a wide variety of materials. Due to the integrated, fully automatic roll change system, this winder can be used in continuous operation. The winding shafts are positioned fully automatically. In contrast to the turret winder, the winding positions move linearly when the roll is changed. This allows a continuous winding process with movable contact roller. The linear movement also enables a web tension controlled roll change. This is especially recommended for tension-sensitive materials.
