Epsilon VI SW \ UP High Speed Automatic Film Rewinder
The new Epsilon VI SW (Stretch Wrap) and Epsilon VI UP (Upper Unwind) machines are fully automatic surface driven rewinders. They can rewind a variety of film types and give improved performance and output over previous MGE and competitor models.
The Epsilon VI series of machines are manufactured to a compact and ergonomic design to ensure ease of operation and minimal maintenance. The fast line speed makes the machine ideal for use in the conversion of longer length film rolls whilst a quick index speed on the rewind ensures an adequate performance for shorter length rolls. A new frame design minimises vibration at top production rates and incorporates improved safety guarding. The ease of operation means that a single operator can control multiple machines, providing possible reductions in operating costs.
Both the unwind and rewind on the Epsilon VI are surface driven with pneumatically controlled winding pressures on each. A variable AC drive and adjustable tension system ensures that the machine can be precisely set to give optimum performance depending on the material being converted. A dynamic braking system is fitted with rewind roll length and braking distances precisely controlled by an electronic counter located on the panel of the machine. The Epsilon VI UP also includes a raised unwind position to give a shorted web path and improved roll profile for delicate materials such as PVC.
Rewind cores are automatically fed through a large capacity easy access hopper and a ramp loading facility is included for easy handling and loading of heavy mother rolls. The Epsilon VI is also fitted with CE approved safety guards with 4 highly visible machine status lights located on the front to inform the operator when manual intervention is required (add cores, change mother roll, web break, winding issue).
