Automatic Loggers & Log Winders

FEBA Automatic Loggers & Log Winders



The FEBA Automatic Logger / Log Winder System was developed for companies converting large quantities of adhesive and non-adhesive materials from the original jumbo roll down to a smaller log such as paper tapes, transfer tapes, masking tapes, filament tape, duct tape, double-sided adhesive tapes, foam tapes, protective, laminated & self-adhesive materials, polyesters, PVC, labels, graphic materials, textiles and similar products onto a paper or plastic core.

The unique revolver unit allows for a complete non-stop winding/rewinding cycle and the cores/finished log can be manually or automatically loaded/unloaded onto the shaft whilst the machine is rewinding the material onto the other shaft. This series is available as a standard machine but can be configured with a wide variety of accessories and auxiliary handling devices to meet virtually any material specification & converting requirements. Technically equipped with the latest tensioning devices to a guarantee a perfect control of the rewind tension & finished rolls with a perfectly straight end-cut & tab. In addition, the FEBA line of semi-automatic & fully automatic loggers and log winders can be engineered with lamination & de-lamination systems and equipped with log unloading & transfer systems suitable to operate in-line with FEBA Multi-Shaft Lathe Slitters.
