AC-175PMC Programmable Dual-Spindle Spooler with Auto Change

Progressive Machine Company's Model AC-175PMC Programmable traverse winder combines the accuracy of computer controlled repeatability with on-the-fly, cut and transfer technology to produce a virtually hands-free winding process. This spooling machine is designed specifically for use in those manufacturing environments that demand limited physical contact, either for reasons of operator safety or to prevent contamination from contact with the floor. This is an ideal solution for high speed extrusion lines (to 500 fpm) in industries such as medical or food packaging.

The AC-175PMC is controlled by Progressive’s exclusive ACCU-WIND system which provides unsurpassed accuracy in winding while drastically cutting transition times for set up or adjustment. It offers a unique versatility that couples the flexibility of infinitely customizable “recipes” or winding patterns, with tension control and guide options to enable the same winder to produce superior packages for a wide range of materials. Typical applications include strip, tube, or profile from the 1/4” to 1 1/2” size range and possibly even larger depending upon factors such as speed, pitch, and package weight.

Additionally, this unit incorporates Progressive’s unique ACCU-TRANS automatic, cut and transfer system which allows for the hands-free transition from full to empty spool. When used in conjunction with the automatic set-up and recall provided by the ACCU-WIND control system, the result is second to none package quality with minimal operator involvement. For package quality, operator safety, and sanitary code issues, the Model AC-175PMC is the clear choice.
