Turret rewinder for short runs

Alpha Converting Equipment’s new Alphamatic Turret automatic rewinder has been designed for processing sensitive ink jet papers as well as laminated films and a wide variety of other substrates. It runs 2 or 3 inch cores and is rated at 300 m/min, with a typical cycle time of just 20sec for a 50m roll.

Sales Manager Peter Stokley says: “The Alphamatic Turret provides a highly efficient and flexible solution for short run work. It is designed for single person operation – once the unwind reel is loaded into the machine, all operations are automatic. It runs to the length set by the operator, turrets, loads fresh cores, strips the roll from the rewind shaft and is delivered to a roll closing system with ID labelling and barcoding.

“The finished roll is delivered to a storage table outside the perimeter of the machine guard, where the operator can pack as required.”

Available in versions from semi-automatic with manual core loading and removal of finished rolls to full automation, the new winder is supplied with an adhesive-less start (cinching) system. “This is particularly useful for the many applications where adhesive might cause contamination on the next process,” says Stokley.
