Epoch Industries is now a division of the Double E Company. Epoch's extensive line of idler rollers complement Double E chucks, shafts, and safety chucks perfectly. The synergy of the two companies allows web converters to obtain the highest quality web handling accessories from a single supplier.
Double E is pleased to announce two updated shaft solutions for winding multiple rolls. The ultra lightweight strip shaft for 6" applications is lighter than any comparable shaft on the market while the new differential shaft is ideal for winding materials with varying thicknesses.
“Solis” accumulators stand apart from other accumulators by offering closed loop tension control throughout the cycle and by allowing programmable storage amounts that can be changed on the fly. Accumulators deliver stored web material when part of a production process must come to a stop while the rest of the line continues to run.
Double E introduced carbon fiber core shafts nearly 30 years ago to reduce operator handling injuries without sacrificing line speeds or roll weights. Carbon fiber shafts and rollers have since become critical tools for optimal roll processing for converters.
This phrase provided the namesake for Double E, and continues to be the driving force behind the company's products and services. The Double E Company offers advanced web handling equipment that allows its customers to run machines faster, reduce material waste, minimize operator injuries, and improve efficiency.
The new "Lynx" digitally assisted slitter positioning system bridges the gap between manual knife holder placement and fully automatic machine placement.
The DF-2000 "Extreme" chuck is Ideally suited for corrugators and other aggressive unwind applications. Its smooth gripping jaws are larger to overcome core tear-out and other problems caused by weak cores.
Automatic torque activation in shaftless applications
Pneumatic / mechanical operation; constant grip force in shaftless applications
Mounts on core shaft to run various core sizes
One-piece ergonomic core plugs; easy insertion for a single operator
Patented sliding faceplate secures core shafts for safe winding
Expanding and non-expanding models available; ideal for tissue and paper mills
A fraction of the weight of steel shafts without sacrificing strength or stiffness
Core shafts in steel, aluminum, or lightweight carbon fiber
Double E strip shafts use multiple external expansion elements to grip the inside diameter of any core material. Ideal for multiple slit rewind web processing applications.
Best gripping force for high-speed and/or heavyweight applications
Pre-configured unwind stands with tension control and web guiding
Drop-in modules to upgrade old slitting equipment or to add slitting to an existing converting process
Festoon style material storage and dispensing. The Solis accumulator delivers stored web material when part of a production process must come to a stop while the rest of the line continues to run.
Basic core cutting machines create a clean cut edge without creating saw dust
"Tiny","Gold", and "Platinum" Series knife holders for optimum slitting performance; easy upgrade from existing holders.
Composite rollers are designed for reduced weight and high critical speed
Combiflex and Extreme pneumatic brakes for any roll stand - longest pad life, no squealing
Re offset pivot guides, steering rolls, or shifting actuators for edge, center, and line web guiding
Lightweight, high strength composite cores can be reused indefinitely
