Unwinder

December 19, 2006

Independent Machine Company has in­tro­duced the latest innovation in spooling equipment. . . Unspooling with  Spool-Mate, the first low cost,  dri­ven spool unwind with closed loop tension control.  The growing popularity of spooling narrow width material to get exceptionally long lengths on a single pack­age without splicing has created a need for a reliable  unwind system for the next step in the process.  The unique web path of Spool-Mate provides the same  precision positioning as traditional pancake unwinding with the  advantages of spool usage. The compact 12-inch x 12-inch modular unit is easily mounted to a press or laminating operation and requires just a 220V power source  and speed reference signal to follow. The exclusive IMC Dancer Tension Con­troller has the  same adjustable precision tensioning used in the IMC Smartwinders spooling “cubes.”
