Techtextil/Texprocess 2015: August Mink
Excellent spreading effect
The August Mink KG, Göppingen (D), presents its wide range of web spreader rollers for an excellent spreading effect not matched in other systems. Crease-free spreading right to the very edge of the web without marking or folds is guaranteed with Mink BSW technology. The rollers are free running, require virtually no maintenance and are long lasting.
The “trick“ in combatting creasing is that the strip brush inserts around the circumference have bundles of bristles angled outwards from the centre of the roller. By using individual bristle tips, the contact area is minimal thus avoiding marking and also enabling applications where coated webs are involved.
Film thicknesses from 8µ and web widths of 6 meters and beyond are not a problem. Many materials including film, non-woven, textile, rubber and paper webs can all be reliably spread and smoothed. To support a wide range of different applications, four different bristle types are available. For multi-slitting applications there is a version with a unique two-directional angling of bristles. Integrated static removal can be offered as well as options for high temperatures up to 160°.
To make the Mink web spreader roller even more efficient, Mink has recently developed a new middle segment with two-directional bristle design, the Mink “QFM”. This segment is ideal for sensitive webs. The latest addition to the range is the BSW-PP for tight spaces, e.g. in the manufacture of incontinence products, where a consistent and damage-free result during coating is achieved. The BSW-PP is ideal for web widths up to one meter.
