Multi-Position & Specialty Winders
Many processes dictate that multiple winder stands be incorporated into the web line. The necessity could be related to a stripping webs or winding liners separate from the product, or it could simply be required for staging a new core in order to reduce downtime while a transfer is being made. For these customers, New Era offers custom designed multi position winder stands. These units can be incorporated with accumulators so as not to stop the process while transfers are being made. Additionally, we can incorporate a variety of semi-automatic and automatic transfer mechanisms on these units to give you on-the-fly transfer capability. In addition, New Era has many proprietary winder designs which allow for features such as continuous pack and gap winding. With this type of system, the pack/gap roll travels with its associated winding spindle during turret indexing so as to maintain pack/gap winding throughout the transfer sequence. All of our single position winders are provided with automatic tension control and diameter calculation, and can also incorporate features such as shaft-less chucking of varying web widths, slitting, pack winding and gap winding, automatic guiding and built in pull rolls.
