Dual Position Quick-Change Unwind

March 1, 2010

Elsner Engineering Works has introduced a newly designed and manufactured dual-position turret unwind feature for its Elsner Model AFR-series Fully Automatic rewinders for the food film industry. This feature allows the machine operator to prepare an auxiliary master roll of material while the primary roll is still being converted. As a master roll depletes, the machine comes to a stop and awaits the push of a button by the operator. Upon signal, the unwind turret indexes the prepared roll over the web of the depleting roll. The operator cuts or tears the web from the indexed depleting roll and signals the machine to resume production. This process eliminates the need to re-web the machine each time a mill roll expires and reduces mill roll changeover time dramatically.
