New Publication on Winding Machines


LANCASTER, PA—DEStech Publications, along with TAPPI Press, announces the publication of "Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurement." This new book by two of the world's foremost experts, J.K.G. Good Ph.D., P.E., Professor and Noble Foundation Chair, School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Oklahoma State University and David R, Roisum, Ph.D., Finishing Technologies, Inc., is a guide to how winding machines work and how wound rolls are formed. It covers a wide array of machines in use across all web industries, including paper, film, foil, nonwovens, textiles, and more. Using hundreds of proven calculations, the book enables readers to understand and make the adjustments necessary to prevent roll defects and improve product quality. Dozens of examples and hands-on applications illustrate key techniques. Most of the book, especially the last section on measurement, is written in everyday language accessible to all responsible for machine operation and roll quality—from engineers to shop floor managers. The book comes with a CD-ROM containing numerous formulas for winding and roll calculations.

Topics covered in the book include:

  • Zen and the Art of Winding
  • Some Winding Defects
  • Winder Arrangements
  • Roll Geometry and Properties
  • Simple Material Properties
  • Introduction to Wound Roll Modeling
  • Simple 1-D Models
