Improving Slitter/Winder Performance on Differential Winding Shafts with the X-3400 Controller 

“When considering upgrading your slitter winder for differential rewinding capabilities, selecting the proper winding shafts is only part of the equation.  The differential shafts will allow the cores to slip, but controlling the amount of slip, and the torque transferred to the cores needs to be considered carefully as well.

In order to ensure successful differential winding, you must consider your shaft requirements carefully. You must also consider how the machine will deal with providing the correct amount of overspeed rotation for the winding shafts, along with adjusting the torque levels to wind a quality roll with the proper amount of taper tension. By considering the control system as well, only then will you be able to fully take advantage of the benefits differential winding has to offer.

The Montalvo X-3400 Rewind Tension Controller, part of the Montalvo CB-64 family of tension controllers, will precisely regulate the torque levels transferred to the rolls, no matter what the slit width is, and control the overspeed required for the rewind motor to ensure minimal core dusting, eliminate overheating, increase the lifespan of the winding shafts, and simplify the entire winding process for quality results every time…”
