Single Position Unwinds
For customers operating roll to roll, New Era offers single position let off stands. These units can be incorporated with accumulators so as not to stop the process while splices are being made. Our unwind equipment can be provided with splice tables, allowing lap splicing, butt splicing or zero tail lap splices depending on the process needs. All of our single position unwinds are provided with automatic tension control and diameter calculation, and can also incorporate features such as shaft-less chucking of varying web widths, automatic guiding and built in pull rolls. A variety of chucking methods can be employed, including tilt-lock style with air shafts, Pneumatic chucks with air shafts or for shaft-less operation and even differential unwinding utilizing a differential air shaft.
Our unwind systems are purpose built for the application and can be cantilever in design for narrow webs, cantilever with an outboard support for wider, heavier bundles which require cantilever unwind and loading, or dual side support for web applications up to 20 feet wide.
