KN700 is IMA Teknoweb perforator rewinder for bucket rolls made of pre-cut nonwoven.
Starting from the mother roll, KN700 unwinds, folds, pre-cuts, and rewinds wipes in rolls. One of the main features of this machine is its capacity to perform multiple folding: V, W or C type. The rewinding unit uses a double rotating shaft (up to 840 mm) for continuous operation. Therefore, there is no start and stop but only a small reduction in speed during roll changes. The automatic ejection of finished roll ensures the highest productivity of its category. In detail, when bucket rolls are formed and ejected, the following ones start to get rewinded, so the mother roll never stops rotating: this ensures a constant tension that gives a perfect shape to the product at the highest level of productivity.
This converter has recently been re-engineered to increase its performance, making it compliant to the latest sanitary and safety guidelines (GMP).
KN700 can be integrated in a complete Canister line, where dry rolls ejected by KN700 are manually or automatically loaded into the filling and capping line. Final wetting of the wipe can be either water-based or alcoholic lotion (ATEX version).
