Cutting systems manufacturer Eastman Machine Co. (Buffalo, N.Y.) has introduced the Power Roll Stand, engineered to feed rolled material goods, such as fiber reinforcement fabrics, onto a fully automated conveyor cutting system. The system features an ultrasonic beam that constantly measures the roll diameter to facilitate and control feeding speeds. This control, combined with a “dancer bar,” helps reduce stretching and pulling that can lead to distortion of the material or yarn misalignment. The system can handle rolls as heavy as 2,000 lb/907 kg and accommodates roll widths to 48 inches/122 cm). An optional configuration can handle 60-inch/152-cm diameter rolls that weigh up to 500 lb/227 kg.
