US-based Catbridge has developed a new modular duplex slitter rewinder system for the flexible packaging market.

Created in the company’s facility in Montville, New Jersey, US, the new 900-M duplex centre winder will allow Catbridge to expand its new converting machinery portfolio.

Capable of functioning continuously, the 900-M winder helps operators save time during production.

"All the high performance and features you expect from a Catbridge are packaged for this industry at an attractive price."

Catbridge said that the low-maintenance solution could be used to support various primary films, flexible packaging laminations, and paper products.  

The winder features a variety of slitting methods and unwind options, and can be configured according to specific customer requirements.

Catbridge president Michael Pappas said: “The 900-M is a performance-meets-value machine.

“All the high performance and features you expect from a Catbridge are packaged for this industry at an attractive price.”

In September, Catbridge Machinery unveiled a new surface slitter rewinder, which helps increase productivity and safety.

The Model 215 rewinder reduces cycle time, yields greater throughput per shift, and provides a comprehensive safety system to operators.

Compared to traditional surface winders, the new machine allows nearly twice as many jumbo rolls to be processed in a shift.

The system offers shaftless floor pickup unwind capabilities, high-capacity hydraulic systems, web threading and core placement assists, core stop presets, and a streamlined finished-roll discharge process.
