The latest REM Model 15000 center-surface slitter/rewinder from Webex incorporates a number of innovative, custom features designed to produce uniform, narrow width, 40-inch diameter rolls from multisubstrate films run at tensions as low as 0.5 PLI.

A unique closed loop system automatically positions dual pivoting winding stations and dual driven, rubber-covered winding drums to achieveconsistent winding pressures and tensions regardless of slit roll size or weight. The floor pick-up system handles master rolls weighing up to 4000 lbs (50" max. dia. and 65" max. width). PLC control with recipe memory and color touchscreen simplifies operator input for unwind tensions, rewind differential and locked-core tensions/taper control, winding pressure, minimum gap rewinding, and counter functions. This shear slitting system is also available with automated knife positioning.
