Eastman Machine Company has released a new Heavy-Duty Roll Stand system. The system features edge control, which is used for handling rolled material goods.

The Heavy Duty Roll Stand is engineered to introduce rolled material goods for spreading onto a fully automated, conveyor cutting system. Eastman says that the system can be used as a single unit or as part of a multiple unit configuration for several layers of material.

The roll stand ensures precise alignment of each material ply, maintained by a Photo-Electric Edge control feature. The system is capable of handling rolls up to 1000 pounds (450 kg) and roll widths up to 126” (320cm).

Manufacturers say that this Heavy Duty Roll Stand is especially suited for high weight rolled material goods, making it ideal for the composite industry.
