The Rollette 400 Trim/Liner/Scrap Automatic Rewind has been introduced by Larson-Burton Inc., of Loves Park, IL, USA. The unit is designed for continuous take-up of scrap material from any converting process. It will rewind miniature rolls then automatically cut-off material and begin a new roll all without cores or any operator intervention. The full rolls are ejected into a hopper for removal and reclamation.
Larson-Burton says that the unit is small and quiet, that it compacts material densely, and that it does not have blowers or choppers. It can be combined with an in-register automatic splicing unwind for labeling applications. More information is available at www.larsonburton.com.
