Pneumatic winding shafts
It is difficult to give a standard overview. Pneumatic winding shafts are produced in many types, based on a number of basic principles. The diameters vary from 25mm up to 600mm and you can choose from square, triangular or round journals. Besides the standard double bearing shafts, there are also cantilevered versions available. This can make it a lot easier to work with the rolls.
If a pneumatic winding shaft is not suitable due to the roll weight or machine speed, then a pneumo-mechanical winding shaft can be used instead.
Mechanical clamping chucks
For both practical and ergonomic reasons it is becoming more common for manufacturers to choose pneumo-mechanical clamping chucks.
In other words: shaftless winding. In addition to the basic elements, we can also adapt the clamping chucks to your specific wishes.
Web tension control
Along with the brake system, maintaining a constant web tension is very important. A constant web tension during winding is essential for a good final result. The force measuring sensors register any mechanical distortion that is caused by the web tension.
This input is converted into an electrical signal. Thanks to the combination of force measuring sensors, web control and brakes or clutches, we can guarantee an extremely stable production process. We don't just sell products, we can also install them on your production line and give you all the advice you might need.
Clutches and Brakes
We have a very wide range of clutches and brakes. The type that you'll need is dependent on the particular situation. Not only do we offer a wide range of wheels, but we can also adapt the internal mechanism to your particular needs. Contact us if you have any specific requests. We will gladly discuss the best option for you.
SPREADER ROLLERS OR BANANA ROLLERS
Spreader rollers are used in several sectors, such as the foil, textile and paper industries. Advantages:
- The special bearing construction ensures that the roll runs very easily. So easily in fact, that the material turns the roller.
- The use of steel also makes the roller suitable for higher speeds, such as those used in the paper industry.
- Spreader rollers with adjustable bow heights are available for larger static loads.
- They can also be equipped with an oil chamber system, for use in damp surroundings.
- The use of high quality materials means that bow rollers are easily repaired.
Standard Spreader rollers are supplied with a large range of various rubber coatings. Special surface profiles can also be supplied.
Sensors are available in the following types: LED, compensated ultrasonic, high temperature, dangerous environment and line detection types.
Steering frames are available in the following types: positive displacement assemblies, PDG (4 rolls), Double Roll Steering Roll (DRSR), Single Roll Steering Roll (SRSR), heavy and light.
The systems are available in both analogue and digital versions, each with its own distinct advantages. Based on your specifications, we can build a system that is optimised for your particular situation. We also offer the option for a computer interface. This allows all guidance to be controlled from a single computer.
