Matik, Inc. announces the availability of the new Goebel optiwind, a two-drum winder for the paper and cardboard converting industry, capable of handling the high speeds of today’s paper machines.

Optiwind is suitable for converting paper and cardboard — such as offset newsprint, copy paper, NCR base paper, corrugated medium, kraft and liner board. The winder is able to handle materials of up to 7000 mm at a speed of 3000 m/min.

A special feature is its variable drum roller geometry which offers the paper and board converting industry a distinctive advantage. Paper which tends to build up vibrations can cause oscillation during production. The vibrations thus affect the machine operating characteristics and the finished roll quality. The variable drum arrangement counteracts these negative effects by enabling the rollers in the respective winding stages to change their position one to another automatically, thus reducing the vibrations and improving the finished roll quality.

Another advantage of the optiwind is the arrangement of the slitting section. Optiwind uses individual slitters applied in tangential slitting between unwinding and winding.
