Davis-Standard, Pawcatuck, Conn., and NO.EL srl of Italy have signed an exclusive agreement to jointly supply inline coreless stretch-film systems. The alliance combines NO.EL’s coreless winders with D-S’s extrusion and processing capabilities to provide high-speed coreless and pre-stretch film systems in widths up to 120 in. Using this equipment, processors can manufacture multiple rolls of slit film using bleed-trim or bleed-less technologies.
NO.EL’s inline coreless winders can produce cast stretch film for hand and/or machine wrap at line speeds up 2240 ft/min. In addition, NO.EL’s patented air-floatation mandrel expands the finished film roll, allowing it to be removed from the core shaft effortlessly, without film sticking or twisting. Sequential porting of the air used to float the film off the shaft allows for wider, multi-roll winding on a single shaft. The simplicity of this design reportedly makes this mandrel one of the strongest and easiest to balance on the market. NO.EL’s coreless winders will be integrated with D-S’s Black Clawson stretch-film systems, which run at more than 2200 ft/min for film as thin as 10 microns.
