The ALPHATRIM TWM is a stand-alone unit which does not need any integration with the host slitter. Each trim winder is driven by its own variable speed motor running under closed loop tension control from a precision pneumatic dancer, which automatically tracks the speed of the host slitter.

Rewinding is either on a cardboard core or coreless to provide even easier recycling opportunities.

With speeds up to 600mpm and operator adjustable tension and oscillation control the ALPHATRIM TWM provides a very simple and efficient trim winding solution.
