The ideal method of winding most materials is with a surface slitter rewinder. Here the converter relies on the winding force produced by the winding drum which is always in contact with the outer layer of the material being rewound. If there is any variation in gauge the winding drum will be in contact with the largest diameter of the roll or wherever the gauge band exists. That section of the web that does not rest on the gauge band will follow along without undue stress.
|Maximum Web Width||Maximum Rewind Diameter||Maximum Speed|
|DS1||80 inches (2040 mm)||48 inches (1219 mm)||2000 fpm (610 mpm)|
|DS2||160 inches (4064 mm)||60 inches (1515 mm)||2500 fpm (765 mpm)|
DS1 Two-drum Surface Slitter Winder
The DS1 is ideally suited for many paper and nonwoven applications. Built upon the success of the model 840, it features a special tension control technique for clean cutting of various paper and nonwoven materials including gummed tape.
DS2 High Speed Two-drum Surface Slitter Winder
Similar to the DS1, the DS2 offers the ability to slit large paper and nonwoven materials. Expanding on the original model 909, the DS2 is engineered to slit large rolls at higher speeds.
