Calemard’s high capacity slitter and rewinder Centaure offers at the same time a high technology and a high versatility combined with easy handling. This new machine is designed to transform different kinds of wide web nonwovens, made of PP, PES, PA or Vi, into narrow strips. Recently commissionned at Lentex’s Lublienec plant, the new Centaure produces compact rolls with optimized length in a given outer diameter on a wide variety of products.
A separate unwinding station designed to receive rolls of large diameters (1300 mm maxi diameter, 500 Kg) is driven to minimize tension and elongation on light web nonwovens such as 15gsm. Tension is kept constant thanks to a pneumatic loaded dancer acting on a drive controlling the unwinding motor. This unwind station includes an inspection table and an ultrasonic or adhesive tape manual splicing table, to inspect and remove faulty materials. The inspection might be visual or also automatic depending on the type of defect/fault to be checked.
With a minimum slitting width of 35mm, the machine is equipped with crush and/or shear slitting module for a perfect quality whatever the type of products or applications. To complete the versatility of the Centaure, the machine is proposed with slit width adjustment assistance. A rectified index sliding along a digital ruler is provided for easier slitting width adjustment.
