The NO-STOP UNWINDER: efficiency takes a step further
Even more versatile and precise. Thanks to the electric motorization, the OMET No-Stop unwinder offers today further advantages in terms of efficiency and production control. The module, which has revolutionized the paper roll changeover by introducing the automatic splicing, is now available for high-performance machines such as the TV 840 Line.
“When it was introduced to the market a few years ago, the No-Stop unwinder was a clutch innovation – explains Roberto Perego, OMET Tissue Division manager -. The new module allowed our customers to gain competitive advantages by reducing waste and machine downtime. Today, it’s even more performing thanks to the electric motorization that has replaced the pneumatic version: the movements of the shafts are more precise and the job parameters can be easily scheduled”.
The No-Stop unwinder can bond single-ply or double-ply paper rolls by overlapping and connecting them through adhesive tape. OMET technology allows the machine to continue operating during the switch, avoiding any downtime.
“The unit, previously available only for TV 503 Line, is now available for the TV 840 Line in a wider version – explains Perego -. It is composed by two unwinding stations, an access ladder in the central area where the splicer is located. It is equipped with automatic paper cutting system and accumulation buffer to allow the junction of the plies”.
The No-Stop unwinder group can be integrated into all OMET tissue converting machines, even into existing ones. Its performance will be showed with live demonstrations on a TV 503 Line at OMET headquarters in Via Caduti a Fossoli (Lecco) during It’s Tissue 2018 event.
