If a roll change shall or have to be done at machine stop during unwinding or rewinding processes an accumulator ensures the continuous web transport to or from the production line.
For these tasks SOMATEC offers the most different accumulator designs and sizes. The accumulator carriage either will work from bottom to top or vice versa. The comb design enables an easy thread-in of the web during start-up of the line. Depending on the products and on the process requirements capacities from only a few meters up to 200 m (660 ft) are possible.
