Thermex-Thermatron is excited to announce our new Indexing Nip Roller System

Indexing Nip Roller System

The newest addition to our Material Handling Systems collection is the Indexing Nip Roller System. This roller is also known industry-wide as a pinch roller or a grip roller. Thermex-Thermatron Indexing Nip Roller Systems are used in conjunction with our RF and ThermaPress Systems to pull material off the press after being sealed. Each Nip Roller System can be customized to your specific production needs.

The economical Indexing Nip Roller System is used for applications that include:

  • IV Bags
  • Waste Collection Bags
  • Medical Cushion Support
  • Automotive Bladders
  • Inflatables

The Indexing Nip Roller System can be customized with any Thermatron RF or Thermal Press and Unwind Stand.


  • The indexer and unwind stations are integrated into the PLC Control box and operated by the START CYCLE and STOP CYCLE pushbuttons from the Control Panel or manually through the HMI.
  • The Servo drive is connected via Ethernet.
  • The Unwind Stand is customizable in width and can be engineered to hold 3, 4, or 5 rolls of material.
  • On the press entrance is a Servo driven horizontal pinch roller and an idler roller to pull the material from two (2) rolls and assist the metered material into the press.
  • On the exit side of the press there are two (2) driven horizontal rollers to pull the material from the press and feed the metered material under the servo punch out system.

Unwind Stands

Thermex-Thermatron, the premier builder of high powered industrial systems for heating dielectric materials, also manufactures customizable Multiple Roll Unwind Stands. These heavy duty stands can be used in conjunction with our RF heat sealing and thermal heat sealing systems, and are controlled via the sealing system’s PLC. Our engineering team can customize an unwind stand to meet your manufacturing demands.
