Non stop operation is normally achieved with integrated accumulators providing time for the operator to load new sores or spools. For high speed lines twin spoolers with automatic cut off can be supplied so that the tape only needs to be transferred from the finished spool to the new core before restarting.

Non stop spoolers offer all the flexibility of ALPHASPOOL spoolers with configuration to suit tapes and filaments. Each spooler efficiently winds bobbins of films, tapes or filaments to level wound spools with a precise computer controlled traversing mechanism and sensitive tension control.

The cantilevered rewind shafts provide quick roll change whilst the servo control systems ensure precise spooling. All Alpha spoolers are of heavy duty construction for long life.
