WALCO®, expert in Industrial Laminators

Slitting and Rewinding Machine

What is it all about?

The term "converting machinery" normally encompasses all the machines and devices required for converting reel materials: unwinding, slitting, coupling, rewinding, etc.
WALCO specializes in automatic coil converting, such as:

  • unwind a single reel, slit it lengthwise and rewind the substrate into several reels of smaller width;
  • unwind a single reel, slit it horizontally and rewind the substrate into smaller diameter reels;
  • laminate multiple coils to obtain a single laminated product to be rewound into one or more coils;
  • cold or hot processes;
  • etc.

Such web converting systems are often used in the printing and graphic paper industry, but increasingly in many other industrial fields involving reel materials.

Unwinders, slitters, rewinders

Coil converting systems are indispensable in the industrial world, as they enable products of different sizes to be obtained, suited to specific processing requirements and easily processed and stored.
Rewinding of processed coils can be done in one or more layers, in different diameters and widths, depending on production requirements.
The implementation and integration of new converting machines requires a good understanding of each customer's problems in order to meet their specific needs. Experts in converting systems, WALCO provides specific and reliable solutions.

 Parameterizable controls

WALCO "converting" systems can be parameterized in order to ensure complete control of the converting process. For example, with regard to slitter rewinders, here are the main features:

  • Unwinding station;
  • Automatic unwinding tension control;
  • Pneumatic shafts and spindles;
  • Automatic edge guiding;
  • Pneumatically operated rolling knives;
  • Lower rewind shaft carriage for easy replacement;
  • Safety spindles;
  • Pneumatic safety cylinders and single gripping point adjustment modules;
  • Swivel hand control station for the operator.
  • Etc.
