5 Station Unwind with 2 Station Cross Web Sheeter and Ultra Sonic Welder

The purpose of this machine is to laminate fiberglass webs together at 90 degrees to each other, tack weld them together ultrasonically, and either sheet or rewind the finished product. The webs come in as 25” nominal webs of unidirectional fiberglass strands held together in a thermoplastic matrix.(narrower webs down to 6” can be ran on any out board lane) The rolls come in on 6” cores and a diameter of 48” with an approximate mil thickness of .010” -.020” which yields a length of up to 10,000 feet. The roll weight for a max diameter is 1500 pounds. For every foot of web advance in the machine direction, we can lay down 10 ft. sq. in the cross web direction. This can vary if the final lane is not a full 25” wide. There will be a pair of unwinds supplying the cross web material so they will need to be changed out 5 times more frequently. Because they alternately feed, one roll can be changed out while the other continues to pay out material. We were charged with placing the webs at a 90 degree orientation to the other webs while keeping the cross webs not more than a .010 gap to a .050 overlap. This is somewhat difficult in that there is camber in the material, there will be some increment tolerance in the machine direction, and there will be slight variations in the cross web roll widths.
