Shafted Unwind Stands and Rewind Stands

center unwind stand with closed loop load cell tension control

Center unwind stand with closed loop load cell tension control designed to unwind nonwoven material. Optional web guiding, dancer and open loop ultrasonic tension control available.

US Webcon offers a complete line of stand alone Center Unwind Stands and Rewind Stands to meet your production needs with numerous features and options to fit your specific requirements. The above shafted center unwind stand is designed to unwind rolls of paper, film and nonwoven material directly into the your process on a roll to roll basis. The web tension is automatically and dynamically controlled by a load cell tension control system. Load cell transducers with closed loop feed back measure web tension directly at the web. The output of the controller maintains the correct torque required from the pneumatic brakes changing dynamically as the product roll unwinds. Self closing safety chucks hold the product rolls safely and firmly in position. If the operator forgets to close the chucks they will close automatically when the product roll is turned over.
