Rotomac to showcase rewinding machine at Ipack-Ima 2018
At the upcoming Ipack-Ima 2018 trade fair (29 May-1June, Milan, Italy) Italian manufacturer Rotomac will be presenting an example of its customisable machines for the food and packaging industry: the improved model 145.
The automatic rewinding machine converts aluminium foil, plastic film and baking paper rolls for household or catering use. The exhibited machine is equipped with a lifting system for aluminium foil mother rolls which is said to simplify the loading into the unwinding unit.
Additionally, the 145 embosses foil (steel – rubber rolls) with special patterns within the converting process. Thanks to further developments, the 145 is said to offer an even more efficient and smooth rewinding with a speed of up to 700 m/min and up to 42 cycles per minute, the company says.
The standard machine converts aluminium or paper mother rolls with an outer diameter of max. 1,000 mm and an inner diameter of 150 mm. It processes material widths from 280 mm to 460 mm into finished rolls with a length from 3 m to 300 m. Upon customer request, the inner roll diameter as well as the material width is adjustable to ensure a perfect fit into the production line.
