JTE introduces new bonding, cutting machine

Products | April 19, 2012 | By:

JTE introduces the new SM-450-SA, a custom unwinding, hot air bonding and laser cutting solution for multiple-roll industrial fabrics.

The machine integrates three motorized unwinding systems, a conveyor cutting machine with a twin conveyor belt, two hot-air welding heads that transform up to three separate rolls into a single sheet, and twin CO2 lasers to cut the newly formed sheets of fabric as they pass over the cutting frame. The machine includes a motorized rewinding station with a total width of nearly eight meters.

The machine was developed for a European manufacturer of pool covers and is able to produce circles, ellipses, squares and rectangles with precision.

The machine promises to serve numerous applications: production of agricultural covers green houses, windscreens, industrial screens, temporary fencing, athletic field and turf protection, swimming pool covers, containment systems, geomembranes, collapsible storage tanks, and reservoir covers.

SM-450-SA can be used for any applications in which multiple rolls are to be bonded then cut.
