The modular winders are equipped with two winding stations. Working widths began at 1/8 meters and at 5 meters. The maximum production speed is 1,200 meters per minute.

Features include a very short roll cycle time, simultaneous re-coring and unloading of the three winding shafts, very short web paths, the shortest slitting length to winding point, no differences in roll quality between the upper and lower turret, or left or right side on the same shaft and the lowest roll pressure control.

Swiss Winding has patented some important parts of the Power Stretch. New technology means there is close to no shaft bending, and winding that is vibration-free and wrinkle-free.
