UW 23 Unwinder

UW 23 Unwinder (23.0")

The UW 23 unwinder  from MBO is a constant tension feeding unit for rolls up to 23.0″ wide and 52″ in diameter.  In web finishing, it all starts with great delivery of the web to the system.  This means that tension and guiding must be accurate and consistent.  The UW 23 has a dancer tension control system with a core driven roll shaft for accurate web tension control.  The unwinder has an integral electric paper lift and splice table as well as a de-curling device.  The solid design with strong steel frames and robust roll drive gives these high-end modules maximum operation capability, reliability of the production process, as well as a long operating life even in a 24/7 operation.
