A revolution in monofilament production: Reimotec introduces fully automated high-speed line for 1000 m/min output

Innovation, Press Releases

02 July 2013 For high outputs at small diameters and more productivity, leading machine manufacturer Reimotec Maschinen & Anlagenbau introduces a fully automated high-speed monofilament line with a maximum output rate of 1000 m/min at the K 2013. The company further expands its technological lead: The line's maximum output rate exceeds that of currently available systems by 750 metres per minute.

This speed is made possible by a high degree of automation and advanced downstream components able to keep up with the line speed. To match the new production line, Reimotec also introduces a compatible high-speed winder for a maximum speed of 1200 metres per minute , for instance for up to 80 reels simultaneously. Therefore, producers running their line at full speed will then be able to make 80 kilometres of monofilament per minute. The product quality (diameter and uniformity of filaments) is automatically monitored by the RM-IDC and RM-SDS measuring systems. both also developed at Reimotec.

Reimotec also offers a solution for reel changing that is suitable for high speeds. The Reimi-R-1000 robotic handling system automatically feeds empty reels into the high-speed winder, picks up the full reels, and transports them to a location defined by the customer. Thanks to the automated system, reel changes become faster, require less personnel, and are less prone to errors. As the automatic system changes all reels at the same time, a uniform filament length on all reels is ensured. Another feature is fully automatic labelling, including a clear identification of the winding position. Reels with nonconforming quality characteristics are detected and rejected. Reimi-R-1000, developed in-house at Reimotec, is the first fully automated handling system for monofilament lines on the market.

The high speed line and all related accessory components are available now. Reimotec Maschinen & Anlagenbau is going to present the winder and the Reimi-R-1000 robot handling system at the Reifenhäuser exhibition stand at the K 2013. The exhibition takes place from Oct 16 to Oct 23, 2013.
