With over 60 years of expertise, Edelmann Technology has been
recognized for its adaptability to market changes and technological advancements. Over the last decades, Edelmann Technology
has developed into a worldwide known manufacturer of exceptional winders and slitters for the nonwoven industry. The company’s customers are located globally in all industrialized
countries. During INDEX08, Edelmann presented the newest
technology for “In-Line” slitting and winding. In early 2009, Edelmann delivered an“In-Line” slitter winder capable of 800 m/min.
Since then, Edelmann's team of experts has further developed this
new technology. In May 2009, Edelmann's In-Line Slitter Winder
M640 was demonstrated operating at a speed of 912 m/min even
while roll doffing. Only a short time ago, “In-Line” slitting and
winding speeds above 660 m/min were only a dream. Based on
these latest technological advancements, Edelmann confirms the
complete winding function, from the start of the new core to the
end of the doffing cycle, is controlled resulting in exceptional wind
quality from beginning to end.
In addition to developments in the field of“In-Line” winding
and slitting, Edelmann Technology is also pleased to announce
improvements in“Off-Line”slitting and winding technology with
its new Off-Line Edelmann-Hybrid system. These new developments have allowed Edelmann to operate its well known Off-Line
slitter winders in a“non-stop” mode meaning the winder does not
ramp down to a complete stop for roll doffing. Instead, the slitting
and winding continues at an interim speed during the doff process
allowing a quicker ramping back up to full speed. This speed management increases the production efficiency and total throughput
of the slitter/winder. As today's spunmelt machines increase in
speed, this new concept eliminates the potential need for a second
slitter/winder as one Off-Line Edelmann Hybrid system has more
than enough capacity to handle slitting and rewinding at these
higher production speeds.
In the winder and slitter business for the nonwoven industry
there is see some analogy to the automotive industry.
Although diesel engines were invented first, petrol engines had
and still have in the U.S. a dominant position for many decades.
New technological advancements in the 1990s lead in Europe to
a renaissance of diesel engines achieving a market share above
50% and the market entrance for new alternative concepts as the
meanwhile well known hybrid drive systems.
Thanks to the extensive experience in both, the Off-Line and
In-Line winding, Edelmann Technology has been able to combine
these two and thus be able to provide the benefit of both systems
