Located just after the paper machine, the winder divides the parent roll into shipping rolls ready for the customer’s final needs.
The objective is to wind the “finished” paper onto reel spools with an optimum density, without any winding defects (folds for example) and with a sufficient cross direction profile hardness for the final customers (or slitters). In addition to Allimand’s know-how with regards to paper machines, it has also been manufacturing winders for many years and has many references for a winder with 2 winding drums. The latest generation winder, resulting from the latest developments and calculations by finite elements, can reach a winding speed of 2500m/min with reel diameters of 1600mm.
The winding quality control is reinforced by a winder integrated control system which controls the linear pressure and tightening torque (by drive).
