Catbridge Turret Winder to control roll density & quality
Why choose a turret? Turret winders offer substantial productivity gains by increasing run time, especially on high-volume orders where many repetitive cycles make minimizing downtime between cycles critical. The basic turret design helps reduce downtime, and specialized features further contribute to improved productivity and cost savings. These machines are ideal for applications with small to medium finished roll diameters on log winding or narrow cuts.
Catbridge Machinery designs and builds a number of different turret models to meet varying needs. We make single, dual, and fully automatic turret slitter rewinders. Our turret rewinders are offered in cantilevered or lift-out designs and can be configured for center winding, center/surface winding, minimum gap winding, or all three modes. This versatility provides an almost unlimited ability to control roll density and quality, making our turrets the right choice for a broad variety of materials. We also offer continuous turret winders for use in process lines. A wide selection of features and options help tailor each machine to your exact application.
Innovation and state-of-the-art technology are integrated into all Catbridge turret winders. We've identified ways to reduce downtime and improve quality in all aspects of the slitting rewinding process. Our unique turret innovations include a durable, driven shear knife cut-off for positive, no-stall cutting on all substrates; the Catbridge enveloper for tapeless, glueless, no fold-over starts; and the Catbridge tabber which applies a pressure sensitive tape to both the beginning of the new webs for core attachment and the end of the finished webs for tail-tie. Our turrets also offer features such as an advanced control system, patented automatic knife placement systems, precise tension control, recipe capability, automatic cut-off and transfer, trim removal systems, and various roll unloading options.
The Model 324 cantilevered turret rewinder produces small to medium diameter finished rolls with slit widths of at least four inches, rewinding on a single shaft. This model comes in 18-inch (450 mm), 24-inch (600 mm), or 32-inch (812 mm) diameters. A non-cantilevered version is available for roll diameters up to 42 inches (1070 mm). The Model 324 turret rewinder offers several features to enhance productivity on both short and long run jobs. Available with different winding configurations, this winder is suitable for almost all substrates. Popular applications include coated paper such as deli paper, uncoated paper such as plotter paper, and also vinyls, films, and nonwovens.
The Model 344 has a duplex turret design which slashes downtime between sets and is ideal for narrow cuts. With its cantilevered, center wind design and numerous time-saving features, the Catbridge 344 dual turret is widely used for pressure sensitive tape, flexible packaging, and other industries with high-volume, repetitive jobs. This turret winder offers locked-core or differential winding and is available in 18-inch (450 mm), 24-inch (600 mm) and 30-inch (762 mm) rewind diameters. Speeds to 2,500 fpm (762 m/min) are possible.
