Limitless film converting: GOEBEL with a world first at K 2013, Hall 3 Booth B73

(PresseBox) ( Darmstadt, )
GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH will be presenting its trade fair highlight of this year under the motto "More productive, wider and faster". The MONOSLIT GIANT proves that GOEBEL knows no limits when it comes to manufacturing customised machine equipment. Boasting an impressive working width of 12,000 mm, which can convert film webs at speeds of up to 1,500 m/min, this absolute world first will be presented in Hall 3 Booth B73.

Keep your eyes open - getting ahead with Goebel

After developing the MONOSLIT, which converts stock reels up to a width of 9,000 mm on finished rolls with slitting widths of up to 300 mm, GOEBEL is now introducing the MONOSLIT GIANT, the widest and fastest slitter rewinder for films. As well as increasing production capacity, many machine components have been further developed to reduce changeover times considerably. A razor blade cartridge automatically exchanges the industrial blades used within a short space of time. The advantages of the film converter: greater safety, ease of operation and a considerable increase in productivity.

The GOEBEL XTRASLIT 2 is the new secondary machine with a broad application spectrum. It converts films, metallised films, cigarette films, flexible packaging materials and sensitive papers with working widths of up to 3,600 mm. This makes it possible to produce narrow cuts at 270 mm, or even narrower in special cases. Thanks to the modular design principle, many different equipment variants can be configured according to customer requirements.

The GOEBEL TWINWIND dual-shaft machine is a universally applicable machine for the converter. It converts flexible packaging materials, metallised and laminated films, and self-adhesive laminates. Areas of application include friction winding on two rewind shafts and direct winding on pneumatic expanding shafts.

Converters of metal films, compounds, technical papers and flexible packaging materials rely on the GOEBEL OPTIMA 2000. Thanks to its range of integrated rewind systems, it is able to convert almost any material up to a working width of 2,100 mm, and down to the narrowest slitting widths of 5 mm. GOEBEL set an important benchmark for the Korean market with a custom-built machine in January 2013: The widest slitter rewinder for aluminium foil from 9 μm thickness with an unwind weight of up to 14.5 t and a max. unwind diameter of up to 1,850 mm left the production halls in Darmstadt. It is the largest slitter rewinder ever built by GOEBEL.
