Market success of Voith Gecko OneStep gluing system
If a reel change is imminent, two traces of hot glue are applied with a low-maintenance nozzle on an anti-adhesive-coated transfer roll. The perforation knives for cross-cutting the paper web are on this transfer roll between the glue traces. The roll turns during a reel change. A glue trace is applied as end gluing on the paper web of the finished reel. In the next step the perforation takes place which later allows separation of the paper web. Then the paper web adheres to the core at the exactly positioned glue trace.
With Gecko OneStep, paper manufacturers can rely on a proven system that drew upon a high degree of technological know-how in its development. Durable and resilient adhesion is ensured using only small amounts of a glue which is also suitable for indirect contact with food. Together with VariFlex winders, Gecko OneStep offers a reliable system for the highest productivity.
