Calemard® Converting machinery Division

Calemard® is a global reference in quality slitting rewinding and spooling solutions, but also an innovative manufacturer, helping tire manufacturers to improve and increase productivity as well as quality.

Regarding the Slitter-rewinders range, Christian Montusclat, Sales Manager of the Tire Division of Calemard explains: “To complete our standard reliable slitter-rewinders range we have been expanding continuously our solutions and especially the fully automated and continuous ones like our Turret winder equipment”. For many years now, Calemard® proposes in-line turret winders to convert and rewind large webs of plastic films and nonwovens. Today, the company also offers a patented solution for in-line centre driven turret winder for narrow webs (slitting 700 mm into 30/40 mm strips) even for sticky products like gum tapes… And Ch. Montusclat to precise: «Our Engineering team has developed a solution to cut in line narrow tapes down to 30/40 mm. This fully automated winding section, to be inserted into a gum tape extrusion line, offers at the same time high technology and high versatility combined with easy handling and optimised productivity”. This new Calemard’s technical solution consists in a plastic liner cantilever dual unwinder with liner guiding/positioning system and automatic splicing device for continuous liner feeding, a driven tension controlled accumulator for up to 60 m product storing, a slitting station with two crush cutting ramps allowing pre-set slitting width to fasten product dimension changes, two scrap edges extractors (with liner separation/recycling), a staggered turret winding station capable of centre surface winding equipped with gap winding solution for precise and stable winding of gum pad and an automated unloading robot, fully independent from operator. Operator only takes care of trolleys removing (when full with pads) and core installation on empty shafts and does not have to handle pads or anything else. Ch. Montusclat adds “This project is a first step in our range extension, we have also worked on continuous spoolers for in-line spooling direct after extrusion process, but for confidentiality reasons, we will disclose more information later in the year…”

Meet Christian Montusclat and Cyrille Pontet on Spoolex’s booth 9040 to discuss your future converting project.
