HOW TO: Combine the Capabilities of a Duplex Center Winder with the Productivity Gains of a Turret

Introducing the Catbridge 900MC: The best of both worlds

The innovative 900MC combines the capabilities of a duplex center winder with the productivity gains of a turret. The 900MC can rewind to a 32” diameter and will handle materials including paper, primary films, flexible packaging laminations, pressure sensitives, and label stock. To significantly reduce downtime between sets, this duplex center winder uses auto tabbing and auto cut and transfer technologies. Cutoff is done close to the rewind point, producing short strands that can be precisely controlled for roll alignment. Additionally, this machine offers proven technologies that increase production including auto knife positioning and auto core loading. For ease of use, the 900MC provides an advanced yet intuitive control system and an ergonomically-friendly design.
