Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario, introduced a stacked turret winder for stretch films, called Automax TCK250.
Automax winds stretch film up to 100 inches wide. It can wind 10 rolls, each 10 inches wide, on each shaft, for a total of 20 rolls per set — up to 600 rolls per hour.
The shafts are cantilevered for quick unloading of rolls and loading new cores.
Once the shaft stops rotating, each gate opens automatically and the turret is in position for unloading. Once the fresh cores are loaded and in position, a push button closes the gate and the shaft automatically inflates.
Automax can wind at 600 feet per minute, with tensions as low as 0.25 pound per linear inch.
Other features include quad nips, dual-adjustable driven bow rollers and electrostatic tapeless transfer.
