Battenfeld Gloucester Engineering Co. Inc. of Gloucester, Mass., has developed an automatic roll unloading and recoring system for cast stretch film makers.
Operating either in manual or automatic mode, the system strips the finished rolls from the winder's cantilevered shaft onto an unloading table. Then the machine loads a pre-selected number of cores onto the empty shaft. The unload table then tips the rolls onto a platform, so the operator can pack the rolls.
At the same time, empty cores are reloaded from one of two large core bins onto the core conveyor before the next transfer.
The new roll unloader works with the entire line of Model 1002 automatic surface/center winders, including the 1002S, 1002D, 1002DS and 1002CS.
