First WinTape winders successfully commissioned
Chemnitz, Remscheid, March 28, 2014 – the first WinTape winders have commenced production at two well-known American carpet manufacturers. The fully-automatic tape winder was first unveiled to the trade at the ‘K2013’.
The new, automatic WinTape winding systems scores highly with its low level of operator involvement: depending on the technological application, the winder operates without any operating staff for up to 24 hours. The automatic precision winder convinces with its extraordinary transfer reliability when pro-cessing both in single and dual tapes. In particular, the virtually 100% safe and reliable automatic transfer of dual tapes for warp packages used on carpet backing has been a globally unsolved tech-nical challenge to date. Its central control system with recipe management and supervision with protection against unauthorized changing as well as the electronically-adjustable crossing angles ensures 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. A transfer tail that can be defined and selected as desired in terms of length round off the innovative new development of the Chemnitz-based Oerlikon Barmag subsidiary. An outstanding price-performance ratio makes the WinTape a prudent investment: the acquisition costs for the automatic tape winder are about half of those for the alternative components available at the last plastics trade fair.
The WinTape forms an efficient double-act when combined with the also freshly-launched EvoTape tape system: with up to 50 percent greater efficiency compared to conventional standard systems, Oerlikon Barmag has managed a quantum leap in efficiency. At an 'Open House' event – which took place at the Chemnitz site in parallel to the plastics trade fair – interested customers were able to in-form themselves of the benefits and advantages of the company's new developments.
