Davis-Standard Corp., based in Pawcatuck, Conn., is offering an option on all its turret winders for film and extrusion coating that reduces shaft handling and related injuries associated with winders.
The option is available for less than $50,000 on Davis-Standard winders.
The new design features two arms for lowering and unloading full rolls into a cart.
One arm pivots away from the winder for removing the roll while the second arm holds the shaft in place, eliminating unnecessary lifting and simplifying unloading.
Davis-Standard said the integrated system consumes much less floor space than a separate shaft puller and cart.
