Thermex-Thermatron Material Handling Systems are customizable to work with your production needs. Our most sophisticated Material Handling Systems include our Indexing Systems and Unwind Stands.
Our Unwind Stands feature a three, four, or five roll modular design – all built on heavy duty roll stands equipped with easy to re-set alignment guides that ensure proper lateral web travel. A web relaxing dancer roller and full width clamp secure material on the roll stand.
Thermex-Thermatron Indexing Systems are customarily 30 inches wide with a maximum roll diameter of 16 inches while the Indexer stroke is adjustable from 0 inches to 36 inches. Adjustments are facilitated by means of a hand wheel and are easily determined by steel rule indicator.
Our Indexing Systems are equipped with a control box that enables the operator to control the press and the indexer in automatic mode and semi-automatic mode, as well as a special jog control for use in set-up and/or splicing and replenishment. This system is calibrated in increments of 1/16 of an inch and also features an emergency stop switch. The Indexing Systems can also be equipped with PLC control with servo drive (allowing for instantaneous length changes at every cycle, if desired). Stroke lengths up to 54 inches, and widths up to 36 inches.
Unwind Stands and Indexing Systems are commonly used for thermoplastic welding and heat sealing from rolled materials. Industries utilizing these systems include:
- Medical – devices, bags, inflatables, cuffs
- Automotive – interiors, seat bladders
- Military/Aerospace – containment, inflatables
- Environmental – containment, barriers
