Imperial Winder

Perfect Winding – the new Imperial winder from KAMPF

KAMPF Schneid- und Wickeltechnik is the world leader in innovation and technology in providing slitting and rewinding machinery to the film and converting industry. 

The production of flexible films (i.e. BOPET, BOPP) is subject to constant technological developments. Thus creating the highest demands on the machinery used within the production process – with consequences for the primary winder: 

Higher process speeds up to 700 m/min
Wider film webs up to 11.000 mm
Bigger rewind diameter up to 1600 mm
Heavier mill rolls up to 25.000 kg
New materials with different properties 
Cycle time: 35 sec.

The new Imperial technology places accents, which can be seen as benchmarks for the future winder technology. 

The new Imperial winder

In order to achieve such ambitious objectives it was necessary to look into every design detail to create perfect solutions for the day-to-day production process. 

So what’s new? 
A smart condition control unit adopts automatically the actual status of the rewind system in terms of possible vibration and ensures permanent and reproducible process conditions 
Newly designed rewind oscillation modules assist to equalize possible film profile variations 
Auxiliary contact rollers avoid film telescoping during roll changeover 
Improved active deflection roller ensures uniform nip pressure across the entire width to avoid wrinkles or air entrapment even at high speeds 
The redesigned and patent core grippers guarantee accurate long-term performance, safe operation at higher speed and load and come also with less wear and easier maintainability 
Safer and faster threading ability due to a compact design at the operator side 
An improved cross cutter comes with a new blade design, quick and easy blade change due to a new access zone as well as an additional camera for monitoring of the knife performance 
Standard integration of a 2-step roll handling system 
Total elimination of hydraulic components 
Integrated control cabinets with pre-conditioned cables reduce installation times
