Successful delivery of two RA 2 to Gold Huasheng Paper Mill China
Fine and delicate papers such as technical papers need special care and handling in the converting process. GOEBEL IMS offers the RA 2, a center-driven slitter rewinder with two independent single-shaft center rewinding stations with idle lay-on rollers. The pressure of the lay-on rollers can be adjusted very precisely through a pneumatic system to ensure careful winding for materials with delicate surfaces. With its unique double single-shaft winding concept it combines the advantages of the single shaft concept, that is a fast reel-change and easy new core loading, with the possibility to reach very wide web width far beyond the possibilities of a traditional single shaft slitter. Typical applications of the GOEBEL IMS RA 2 are thermal paper, carbonless copy paper, coated paper, release paper and more. For the Chinese company Gold Huasheng Paper Mill, GOEBEL IMS successfully delivered two RA 2 slitter rewinders to Suzhou, China in March 2015.
