The dual position shaftless roll stand permits loading one unwind position during operation, requires a small footprint and can be equipped with a powered roll delivery system that eases roll loading. The unit can handle two rolls and each position can lift a roll up to 84 inches in diameter, up to 7,000 pounds in weight and at speeds of up to 3,000 feet per minute. Using the motorized side-loading trolley, an operator simply positions the roll between the stand’s arms. The roll stand then cradles the roll, chucks it and lifts it into position. This self-loading feature permits roll changes within three to four minutes. The roll stand is equipped with automatic tension control that reduces the brake pressure as the roll diameter decreases.
