VariLoad is a rider roll control for winders that replaces the DWS 3 rider roll control for two-drum winders. VariLoad achieves better winding thanks to reproducible winding parameters.
VariLoad offers the same functionality as the old DWS 3 but is equipped with modern hardware and up-to-date operation. In addition, service functions such as diameter adjustment and machine data are stored on a password-protected page. The existing diameter detection can be taken over or replaced by modern profibus angle encoders. Voith is replacing the old DWS 3 with a modern S7-based system or retrofitting it with a self-sufficient rider roll control, if none is present.
VariLoad can be used in all winders that are equipped with a DWS 3. Winders without electronic rider roll control can be easily and inexpensively rebuilt.
In the winder system audit, the winding quality of finished rolls and the condition of the winder and surroundings are analyzed. The goal is optimization of system and process regarding capacity and quality.
