For demanding applications with short sets, the 324MC turret winder delivers substantial time savings and superior finished roll quality. This machine can narrowly slit a variety of materials and rewind them on a common shaft. A short, controlled distance from slitting to core, regardless of core size or finished roll diameter, helps maintain proper tension and minimize web displacement, even for fragile materials. An automated cutoff and transfer system squarely cuts the web and creates very short tails for roll starts and last wraps. Precise placement of these tails to roll outer diameters and new cores prevents misalignment and eliminates trimming at the core or re-attachment on the outer diameter.
The larger 324MC for 32” rewind diameters and the heavy-duty 324MC-HD for 50” rewind diameters are often used in converting process lines. They can be equipped with an accumulator, offset pivot guide, and other special features for process lines. The 324MC-HD is also available in wider web widths.
