Automatic Turret Slitter Rewinders

ALPHAMATIC turret slitter rewinder

Alpha's turret slitting rewinding machines offers a fully flexible option to automatic rewinding. Fully automated or semi- automated versions are available. Designed for use with paper, laminates or films the machine can be supplied with varying levels of automation. Standard tapeless (cinching) start at the beginning of wind helps to prevent adhesive contamination in subsequent processes. Automated delivery out to a banding and printing head and automated unload of the finished roll is all achieved without any input from the operator.
