MS120 Modular Traverse Winders

Progressive Machine Company's Model MS 120 is an extremely versatile modular traverse winder that is designed for use in multiples in the creation of several traverse-wound packages from a slitter or other common upstream feed process. These units are suitable for a wide range of products ranging from extruded plastic to non woven strip.

This spooling machine offers several options for tension control including the standard STC (dancer) and the Progressive non-contact loop controller or Telesensor. The variety of tension control options available for the Model 120 allows for the effective winding of any number of sensitive products without the risk of damaging due to improper tensioning. This style of traverse winder has been successfully used on everything from open cell foam strip to stiff material like string trimmer line.

These quality built spooling machines are supplied with an independent drive and traverse assembly mounted in a tall narrow profile in order to limit floor space requirements. The 120 provides consistent, level wound packages on a very reasonable budget, yet all components and control systems are supplied to insure durability and consistent long term results. The 120 is extremely durable and  easy to maintain with only twenty moving parts per module.
