Accumulators

warenbahnspeicherThe TNT versatile material accumulators are useful whenever the production process must be interrupted: including conventional winding of extruded foil and textile machines or the production of other web-formed materials. These machines meet your special requirements for accumulator capacity and improved sensitivity. TNT custom designs special models for sensitive materials or high web tension.

Beneficial during roll changes or splicing processes.

Material accumulators are needed, for example, when changing rolls in a winding facility would force stopping the machine, or when there are splicing procedures during the unwinding. The accumulator also controls the material web tension and serves as an intermediate storage mechanism in the event that damage or malfunctions occur. Comb type accumulators, with its intermeshing rollers, allow the material web to be fed in simply and easily.

Optimized adaptation to the required usage.
