Alpha Converting launches new high-speed paper winder


A


lpha Converting has added the Alphadrum high-speed, high- specification two-drum paper winder to its portfolio of winders. The new unit has been developed for longer roll lengths and higher speeds. It can handle web widths up to 2800 mm, rewind diameters to 1800 mm and run at up to 1500 m/min.


Alpha managing director, Simon King says: “We have been very successful with our Alphamatic range of winders for short roll production, with rapid, fully automatic roll change capable of winding rolls up to 300 mm diameter from below 50m roll lengths. Our Alphatwin winders are suitable for the typical converter rolls of 600 to 1000 mm diameter.


“The new Alphadrum complements these machines for winding paper rolls over 1000mm diameter.”


NEW TECH ADDED TO TRIED-AND- TESTED SYSTEM


Whilst the two-drum system is tried and tested, the new Alphadrum is also equipped with Alpha’s latest technology


for high-production efficiency: • Automatic setting of top and bottom slitting knives.


• Automatic setting of the twin bow spreader system for optimum web separation.


• Thread assist from the slitting knives up to the winding position.


• Automatic web cut for roll change. • Anti-vibration control of the top rider roll. • Driven unwind with energy recirculation.


FIRST UNIT SOLD TO UK PAPER CONVERTER


“We have been fortunate to work with a progressive UK paper converter for the first machine,” says Mr King. “It is being supplied as a complete turnkey process and will be in production Q1 2021.


“With their positive investment attitude, the customer worked with us to optimise the productivity gains the new Alphadrum will bring them. We are really excited to be delivering such a machine.”


SECOND ORDER Alpha often works collaboratively with other


OEMs, supplying unwinds and rewinds to work with different processes. The second new Alphadrum, due for delivery Q2 2021, is being supplied to Emerson and Renwick for integration with a coating line. E&R is a leading supplier to the converting industry specialising in all aspects of coating, embossing, printing and lamination.


Engineering manager Mike Wright says: “We selected Alpha as our partner for this project because of their reputation for quality equipment, the robust design and their understanding of our requirements. “The coating line will produce high end papers, so the correct winder specification and winding quality is of supreme importance. This partner relationship with Alpha is important for us to supply to our customer a machine we can be proud of.”
