Gloucester Engineering, a leading player in plastics extrusion industry, introduced its new Centrum CS winder, a revolutionary blown film center surface winder capable of winding in forward and reverse modes. The Centrum CS winder utilizes a new "Floating Suspension System" designed to provide outstanding film roll quality compared to more conventional center surface winders due to better precision and constant pressure over of the entire contact area of the rubber roll to the film roll. It also allows easy cut-over and film roll changes in reverse wind mode without the need for a driven shaft.
The company says the winder requires very little maintenance due to the simplicity of the design and its solid, stable and durable construction. The winder is available in a single station with or without a nip roll or as double stations back to back or face to face, with nip roll and platform.
