High-precision film winders

What would be an elaborately produced film without the appropriate winding technology? For more than 70 years, the Alpine subsidiary HOSOKAWA KOLB has been developing solutions for perfect film rolls:

  •  experience gained from more than 2,500 produced winding machines
  • close cooperation with experts from blown film extrusion
  • product portfolio that offers the optimum winder for every type of film

     

Contact winder

The simplest winding principle is usually used for monofilm made of HDPE or LLPE/LDPE for simple bags or waste bags. The method is also particularly suitable for blunt films.

Central winder

The most universal winding system is suitable for both simple and complex film structures.  In addition to the contact winder, the film roll is driven in a controlled manner.

Gap winder

The gap winding is a special form of central winding. Typical applications: strongly sticky films (e.g. high AVA content or ionomer on the outer layer), blunt or strongly shrinking films.

The Work Horse: series 10/10Z

For a wide range of film products with roll widths up to 2,000 mm. Also available with central drive (version Z).

 

The Allrounder: series AW

For highest roll quality with all technical possibilities. Suitable for right- and left-side winding.

 

The Specialist: series 700/700Z

Robust winder for high flexibility in applications. For roll widths up to 3,000 mm.

 

The Space Saver: series WWS

Extremely compact special winder for highest quality requirements.  The turret winder enables adhesive-free winding and reverse winding in the smallest space.
