FEBA Converting Machinery Srl engineers & manufactures innovative & highly productive semi-automatic & fully automatic slitters-rewinders for converting a full range of self-adhesive and non-adhesive materials. FEBA develops advanced, proven technologies that increase production, simplify operations, significantly reduce downtime, and provide outstanding finished roll quality with solutions customized to meet your exact converting requirements.
The FEBA duplex and turret style slitting & rewinding systems are commonly used for converting self-adhesive & non-adhesive materials like carton sealing tapes (PVC, BOPP), paper tapes, medical & sport tapes, double-sided adhesive tapes, automotive & aerospace tapes, construction tapes, foam tapes, protection tapes, graphic & self-adhesive labels, laminated materials, textiles & non-wovens, flexible packaging and similar products.
FEBA offers a variety of slitter rewinder designs & features to handle specific materials & processes: customized solutions to meet your unique requirements. Innovative systems for unwind tension and rewind torque control allows for minimal waste, and rolls of perfect quality for every type of material, with the production process controlled by a recipe driven system. FEBA slitting & rewinding machines can also include lamination & delamination stations, liner recovery rewinds, in-line perforating units, splicing tables, web inspection & web-break detection systems, in-line labeling, roll end tab (double sided adhesive), automatic roll unloading & core loading systems via robotics, and in-line or off-line packaging solutions.
The FEBA Duplex Slitters-Rewinders are available with cantilevered or lift-out rewind shafts and are the most advanced and versatile duplex slitting & rewinding system for converting larger diameter finished rolls up to a maximum diameter of 800mm. FEBA’s differential air shafts & servo driven lay-on-roller systems, provide the ability to slit and rewind the most difficult light gauge films & complex laminate materials. The FEBA Duplex Slitter-Rewinder can be configured with multiple types of slitting systems including razor blade, shear-scissor cut and score cut to accommodate diverse applications. For increased versatility, an additional lower expansion shaft can be added and utilized as a log winder for logging-rewinding rolls up to 400mm in diameter with an adjustable pressure lay-on-roller for perfect rewound tension.
Turret style slitters-rewinders are equipped with two rewinding stations, commonly referred to as “revolvers or turrets”, to automatically run in continuous fashion for maximum productivity & throughput. Two or three sets of rewind shafts minimize downtime by allowing the slitter to keep running while the finished rolls are unloaded and the new cores, pre-loaded on the shaft, are re-loaded into the machine automatically. Fully automatic cycles with auto tab application, final end cut and a variety of automated material handling solutions to further decrease the level of downtime for high volume converters. In-line rewind shaft transfer systems from the Slitter-Rewinder to the core hopper automate the roll removal and core loading process, and the robotic shaft manipulation system can be equipped to automate the shaft loading & unloading procedures for a fully automated solution. All of our Turret Slitter-Rewinders are engineered to work in-line with packaging machines and carton fillers, and can be equipped with various types of braked or driven unwinds. These automated cells can be customized to suit your unique specifications & production requirements.
