GOEBEL's drupa Success

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

At Drupa 2012, GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH demonstrated the automated production of wrapped small rolls (cash register, ATM and other small rolls).  Utilizing the fully automatic, GOEBEL KPW3 two-drum winder customers were amazed at the exceptional efficiency of Goebel’s complete solution.

The GOEBEL KPW3 processes coated, uncoated and thermal papers up to a working width of 63” (1600 mm) and at a speed of up to 1960 ft/min (600 m/min). The minimum slitting width, depending on the equipment version, is 1.5” (37 mm. The complete production process – from unwinding of the material to the packaging of the finished rolls – runs fully automatically.

The KPW3 has a very fast responsive web tension control; it ensures optimal tension of the paper throughout the entire winding process. The spreader roller before the slitting unit ensures wrinkle-free feeding of the paper web and perfect finished roll separation. After reaching the pre-set paper length, the paper is automatically cut by a cross-cutter, before an automatic gluing system seals the tails of the rolls.  The rolls are then transported into the packaging unit. A core loader simultaneously charges the rewind shaft with new cores before the next winding cycle starts.

After the separating and stamping station, the finished rolls are fed onto a packaging line. This consists of a film wrapping machine, shrink tunnel and a packaging table. The automatic winder can produce 20,000 finished rolls – 3.125”x260’ (80 x 80 mm) during an 8-hour shift.

The GOEBEL KPW3 two-drum winder offers an intelligent complete solution which guarantees efficiency and economy in the production of small rolls. This slitter is also capable to produce ATM rolls with a separate transport system out of the slitter.  In addition, this machine can produce small roll’s, and use rewind cores up to 1” in diameter. 

Further equipment features

  • Presetting device for bottom and top cutter shafts for preparation of new slitting widths and accurate alignment of the cutters with each other
  • Trim exhaust with filter cassette to prevent dust build-up
  • Automatic gluing system for sealing the tails of the rolls
  • Roll end marking
  • Roll separating and stamping device
  • Film wrapping machine
  • Shrink tunnel
