Omet has responded to customer demand with the launch of the No-Stop unwinder.
The patented module allows operators to change paper rolls without stopping the machine within a specific timeframe, which according to the supplier increases production and reduces waste levels.
This latest innovation from OMET was born from listening to numerous customers’ requests to have more control over production planning, assuring more and more efficiency.
Omet said: “The No-Stop unwinder automatically switches from one paper roll to another, even on double-ply, without stopping the press thus allowing the operator to change the roll in a much quicker and certain manner.
“When the roll currently being used by the machine comes to an end, a photoelectric cell detects this information and activates a buffer which begins to store the remaining paper. “The paper reserves are then used as soon as the No-Stop unwinder connects the second roll, allowing the machine to continue to operate at a reduced speed, but sufficient enough to maintain the invariable machine settings, preventing the machine from stopping and notably reducing the amount of waste.”
The new model can be integrated into all of OMET’s tissue converting machines, offering a new opportunity for increased efficiency and production control.
