Stretchwrap rewinder and PVC Slitter

Alpha III Semi-Automatic

Slitter \ Rewinder

Datasheet Information

The Alpha III is a semi automatic Slitter-Rewinder capable of rewinding a variety

of films. There is a surface driven unwind roller which is controlled by an AC drive on the system and a dynamic braking system is used to accurately slow and stop the roller between operations.

Both the unwind and rewind pressures on the Alpha III are controlled by a dual pneumatic station, and a unique tension system ensures that the finished roll profile is of the highest quality. The finished roll length is precisely measured by an electronic counter using a preset control for slow down.

The Alpha III is MGE's most versatile machine in terms of configuration with options for multiple slitting operations, straight and turret arms on the rewind, chucks \ mandrels or airshafts, pneumatic nip rollers as well as several other customisable adjustments available. The Alpha III is also offered in 2 different

web widths, a 610mm (24”) wide machine and a 1040mm (40”) wide machine depending upon customer needs.
