Developed for the highest customer requirements and specially designed for maximum output: With VariFlex Performance, Voithsharpens its portfolio of two-drum winders.
VariFlex Performance is a new solution that has already been successfully launched on the market. It sets new performance standards in terms of high-capacity winding, thanks to a design speed of 3,000 meters per minute and a 25-second set change time. This results in a significant increase in both efficiency and productivity. VariFlex is designed for a working width of up to 10 meters.
The unique Gecko OneStep system ensures reliable start and end gluing. Further boosting of the winding performance is achieved with SmoothRun technology. This active drum dampening system significantly reduces paper induced vibrations, leading to an increased capacity as well as brilliant winding results.
Live condition monitoring and a clear system analysis are features of the automation system. In addition, the system provides an easy data exchange to the mill system and enables the integration of automatic jumbo roll identification.
VariFlex Performance will be delivered in only five main assembly modules. All modules are placed on common foundation rails, which simplifies alignment work as well as the civil engineering process.
