CTC’s Automatic Core Loaders are application engineered machines designed to easily interface with our turret rewinders. They can be purchased with the turret, or field retrofit
Core loaders increase productivity on rewind jobs that have short cycle times where continual manual core loading is tiring. Various lengths of cores can be fed. Core loaders can be designed to accommodate multiple core diameters.
The Core Loader is a free standing machine that is placed in front of the Turret Rewinder. Its main elements are a vibratory feeder bowl to orient and feed the cores, a belt conveyor to convey the cores from the bowl to the placement mechanism, and the placement mechanism which inserts the cores onto the spindles. The Core Loader is PLC controlled.
Also available are Finished Roll Transport Systems. These conveying systems receive the completed rolls as they are ejected from the Turret Rewinder shaft. The conveying belt carries the completed rolls away from the Turret Rewinder to a packing area. When a Core Loader is used, the conveyor system mounts on top of the Core Loader. The conveyor system is also available free-standing without the Core Loader.
