Unwinds/Winders

New Era designs a wide variety of narrow width, cantilevered unwind and winders. Designs can incorporate features such as spindle sidelay, automatic tension control and outboard support arms to allow the convenience of cantilevered roll loading with reduced shaft deflection.  These systems can be purchased “stand-alone” for integration into an existing web line, or as part of a complete, fully integrated system.  Our line of purpose built unwinds and winders ranges from single spindle, cantilevered units through fully automatic turret style pieces of equipment designed for high speed applications.  These units can be part of a pilot scale piece of equipment or in many cases, utilized in a production environment where the end product happens to be narrow width.  In addition to winders used for product, laminate and liner webs, we also fabricate narrow web winder spindles for use with slitter edge trims.  These can wind a straight edge roll or oscillate to traverse wind a narrow, ribbon like web onto a single core.  See below for a winder transfer sequence on a high speed, automatic turret unwind system during an FAT at New Era.
