Production rates are 250m per minute or 75 rolls per minute - the highest quoted speeds in the industry - for all substrates when running in any of the three operational modes i.e. cores, coreless or sheet stiffened.
The standard range for rolls is 32mm - 52mm with larger and smaller diameters available. Speed compensation provides accurate roll length. Web widths are 800mm or 1,000mm. Cut lengths are electronically adjustable in millimetre increments from one-metre -12m with optional lengths to 50m available. Accuracy of cut length is +/- three millimetres.
Manual adjustments can easily be made without tools through a simple lever locking system. The operator control station features a user-friendly, touch screen display and the PLC has built-in settings for a wide variety of substrates.
The production process is automatically controlled with a quick and easy set up.
Cut length, production speed, product characteristics and operational mode are monitored and synchronised by advanced electronics. Servo systems provide programmability, repeatability and excellent accuracy throughout the production process to insure a quality-finished product.
The patented Elsner unclosed roll director positions the end of the unclosed product perfectly for over wrapping. This eliminates the need for tape, bands or glue as well as the costs for application equipment.
Perfect shrink utilises a two-stage process, pre-shrink and full body shrink, and provides neat, tight and consistent over wrapped rolls. Label options include the exclusive Elsner loose label inserter. External labels can be applied anywhere on the roll and end labels may be applied to one or both ends.
The new GS-4 Series is compact, provides easy access to all components and is a modular design (rewinder, over wrapper and shrink tunnel are separate modules) allowing for easy future options.
