Catbridge has focused its engineering expertise on
developing innovative, high-throughput, 24/7 converting machines for a variety
of films, including primary films and film laminations used in industrial and
consumer packaging. These machines integrate the latest in safety technology
and ergonomic advantages.
Our slitter rewinders offer advanced technologies to
maximize your productivity and provide superior finished roll quality. Technologies
include patented auto knife positioning systems, core positioning, unique
tooling for faster speeds, precise tension control systems, a variety of
automated roll unloading solutions, and a sophisticated yet user-friendly
Our fast and versatile duplex center winders have become an
industry standard for converters large and small. The popular Model 900 runs at
speeds to 2,500 fpm and can be used for a broad variety of film and flexible
packaging applications. This machine offers locked-core and differential
winding, any combination of shear, score, or razor slitting, and closed or open
loop tension. The 900 can even integrate functions such as inspection,
printing, or laminating. Catbridge also offers a cost-effective, modular duplex
center winder. Incorporating key high-performance features, the Model 900-M
expertly handles many flexible packaging applications. It also offers a choice
of configurations and options, allowing you to equip this slitter rewinder to
best meet your needs.
For flexible packaging applications with high volumes or
frequent changeovers, turret winders are ideal for minimizing downtime. Our
Model 344-FP dual-turret slitter rewinder can reduce downtime between sets to
18- 70 seconds, depending on slit width and exact material. Our revolutionary
Model 324-FP single-turret winder streamlines operations, improves ergonomics,
and precisely controls output quality. Catbridge turret winders utilize
innovative technologies for automating cutoff and transfer, helping to achieve
significant downtime reductions.
We also design and manufacture heavy-duty, large-diameter
slitter rewinders for flexible packaging. The Model 525 has a horizontal duplex
configuration, a 50” rewind diameter, and a narrow slit-width capability. The Model
900-S single-shaft center winder offers versatile roll density and tension
control and rewinds to a 40” diameter.
