Converters of premium products such as film, foils and laminated materials can now minimize trim waste with a shafted roll stand outfitted with edge guidance from Maxson Machinery Company. Designed to handle rolls up to 60” (1524 mm) in diameter, the unit is available in widths up to 65” (1651 mm) and has a 5000 pound (2727 kg) capacity. A sensor mounted at the cutter infeed monitors the web’s edge as the material feeds into the sheeter. The roll stand’s edge guidance system automatically compensates to assure proper placement of the web through the cutter and into the stacker. The roll stand can be equipped with manual mechanical brakes or pneumatic disc brakes that are coupled to the shaft.
