Maxson Automatic Machinery Co. of Westerly, R.I., offers a dual-position shaftless roll stand for loading one unwind position during operation. It can be equipped with a powered roll-delivery system.
The hydraulically powered stand can handle two rolls. Each position can lift a roll up to 84 inches in diameter and weighing up to 7,000 pounds. Each position loads a roll by lowering both arms and then moving each toward the roll. Sufficient clamping pressure is exerted to drive the chucks into the core.
