Automated Roll Loading

Our robotic loading system automatically refills the unwinds, and discards of expired roll cores. By eliminating the need for manual loading, you can reduce labor costs, increase safety and eliminate human error.

Simply prepare material rolls in a designated area, and the ARLS system will pick up the rolls and load/unload them onto the unwinds. The unwind area can be equipped with badge-reader technology, enabling only authorized personnel access to the unwinds.

Turret Unwinds

Joa’s turret unwinds feed material into the machine process, splicing expiring material rolls to new material rolls without slowing the production speed. This technology eliminates the need for accumulators and shortens web paths.
