Technical Specifications


The TW3 is compact level winder designed for placement downstream of a slitter to collect edge trim waste.  The unit operates by automatically adjusting speed to maintain constant tension on the web trim with a high-friction surface-drive roller which is driven by a permanent magnet DC motor with electronic torque control.  Torque is adjusted during setup by a potentiometer on the end panel.  The surface drive maintains consistent torque regardless of trim roll size

Edge trim is wound on disposable cardboard cores inserted on a rugged mandrel which is centered on the drive roll by two vertical guide rails.  Unloading is accomplished by lifting the core mandrel up and out of the guide rails.  Sturdy steel construction and industrial sealed ball bearings are used throughout.  Sheet metal covers enclose the drive components, electrical parts and transversing mechanism.
