Because of the high volume of rolls produced on Jennerjahn’s rewinders, a roll processing line is offered to minimize downstream labor requirements. The core tolerances available through modern core production result in core offset in typical rewind applications. For example, a converter running 2.25” (57mm) wide POS rolls on a typical 54” rewinder can have as much as 3/16” (nearly 5mm) of core offset.
With rolls coming off the rewinder at rates of over 100 per minute, an automated solution for this problem is required. The P&S Roll Processing Line is that solution. The system accepts roll sets from the Jennerjahn rewinder, individually separates them, orients them with the core in a vertical position, aligns offset cores using a small press and conveys the finished rolls to further downstream packaging.
