Oerlikon Barmag’s first WinTape Winders successfully installed in USA
Two well known American carpet manufacturers produce with Oerlikon Barmag’s new fully automatic Win Tape Winders, unveiled for the first time at K2013
The new automatic WinTapewinding system needs only a low level of operator involvement depending on the specific technological application. The winder operates without any operating staff for up to 24 hours. The automatic precision winder has extraordinary transfer reliability when processing both in single and dual tapes. The virtually 100 % safe and reliable automatic transfer of dual tapes for warp packages used on carpet backing has been a globally unsolved technical challenge up to now. The central control system, with recipe management, and supervision with protection against unauthorised changing, as well as the electronically-adjustable crossing angles, ensure excellent package quality. Its automatic package transfer and the storage of up to two full packages and up to four empty tubes, guarantee an uncomplicated, reliable operating cycle. The transfer tail can be defined and selected as desired in terms of length round off is an innovative new development of the Chemnitz-based Oerlikon Barmag subsidiary. The outstanding price-performance ration makes the WinTape a prudent investment, because the acquisition costs for the automatic tape winder are about half of those for the alternative components available at the plastics trade fair.
The WinTape forms an efficient double-act when combined with the also newly launched EvoTape system, allowing up to 50 % greater efficiency compared to conventional standard systems, thus Oerlikon Barmag has managed a quantum leap in efficiency. At n “Open House” event taking place at the Chemnitz site concurrent to the plastics trade fair, interested customers could witness the benefits and advantages of the company’s new developments.
