When producing web-shaped materials made of film, nonwovens, paper or textiles, manufacturers regularly have to deal with wrinkles in the material. To prevent wrinkles, spreader rollers are used. Spreader rollers have the task of realising wrinkle-free production and thus minimising waste. Since previous systems were not entirely convincing, DRECKSHAGE has taken on this problem and developed a new, highly efficient solution - the EcoStretchRoll.
The EcoStretchRoll is a smooth-running roller based on the aluminium EconomicRoll roller profile, which is equipped with special rubber spreader rings. The latter realise a controlled, effective spreading of the web material from the centre of the roller to the outside.
Users can thus produce wrinkle-free - without rejects, marks on the surface or downtimes for adjusting the machine.
The EcoStretchRoll is used wherever wrinkles could occur. It is installed like an idler roller, without a predefined direction of rotation, without adjustment of the roller and independent of the wrap angle. All these advantages already work from a layer thickness of <4 µm.
