Reel Stand: Maximum security and precision

The demands placed on corrugator flexibility are steadily increasing. Shorter orders and frequent quality changes often limit the corrugator’s productivity and are an increasing burden on the operating personnel.


Optimal smoothness guaranteed

In order to keep speed losses to a minimum, the simple and quick loading of the paper rolls is of great importance. The robust construction of BHS Corrugated’s Reel Stand and the highly precise parallel positioning of paper rolls make for optimum smoothness even at maximum speeds of up to 750 m / min. The backlash-free wedge guide between the support arms and the support shaft enables precise adjustment of the arms. In this way, the crease-free unwinding of the paper roll can be guaranteed.

Hydraulic cylinders lift the paper rolls with maximum safety and precision. The mechanical expansion cones used have the advantage that the sleeves can be securely fastened. Powerful, ventilated disc brakes ensure adequate braking performance and a constant web tension in every speed range—the key requirement for optimal operation.


Automatic roll loading and center alignment

In the case of fully automatic roll loading, the Reel Stand is equipped with sensors so that work processes run safely and smoothly. In this version of the Reel Stand, the center of the new paper roll is automatically adjusted to the center of the paper roll still in operation. As a result, the positions of paper webs are exactly aligned with one another, (manual) alignment of the rolls after splicing is no longer necessary. The rest of the roll or sleeve is removed after splicing without any further manual intervention.

Ready for new requirements

The Reel Stand RS-A facilitates entry into the autonomous BHS iMotion transport system. In tandem with BHS iShuttle, the highest demands on the corrugator’s machine safety and productivity are ensured. The Reel Verification System (RVS) ensures that the correct paper roll is used on every Reel Stand.
