New spooling equipment

AlphaSpool from Alpha Converting is a piece of machinery designed for spooling products such as sausage casings.

It is capable of non-stop production, so does not have to be stopped to feed more casing into the machine.

The machine allows for precise control of tension and the spooling pattern.

As well as independent tension zones, each with dancer control, the spoolers are able to wind pancake rolls (straight winding) or level rolls (traverse winding).

"The laydown roll can also be operated in both contact and gap winding mode," said managing director Simon King. "These features allow our customers to optimise winding across a wide range of products."
