Voith releases TwinDrive double unwind

May 4, 2020  By P&PC Staff

Voith has introduced the new TwinDrive double unwind to boost winding capacity.

The new TwinDrive double unwind ensures a winding capacity that is up to 20 per cent higher compared to the use of conventional unwinding systems.

This advantage is achieved through the additional unwind position and fully automated jumbo roll changes.


With conventional systems, the winding capacity is limited due to downtimes during jumbo roll changes. The fully automated process of TwinDrive eliminates these downtimes.

Depending on customer requirements, the paper web is connected automatically with a FlyingSplice or ButtSplice system. Depending on production conditions, more jumbo rolls can be processed by the winder.

The system is fully tested before delivery and shipped in three large units. This results in short assembly times on site and a fast start-up curve.
