Fast Lane Provides Dramatically Shorter Lead Times on Web Accessories for Paper, Film, and Foil Converters

Share Article

Web handling accessories including safety chucks, brakes, adapter chucks, core shafts, and even shafted roll stands and slitting modules, are now available from the Double E Company with lead times that are a fraction of industry standards.

The Double E Company has added “Fast Lane” to its manufacturing process, allowing paper, film, and foil web converters in North America and Latin America to obtain common web accessories more quickly than ever. The program includes common safety chucks, core shafts, adapter chucks, brakes, slitting modules and shafted unwind roll stands.

Bryan Gregory, Double E’s Chief Executive Officer said, “If a machine is down or a customer wants to quickly realize an upgrade project, Double E has a solution. We understand that delivery times are critical. We’ve worked hard to substantially upgrade our assembly lines to achieve short, responsive lead-times for many standard products.”

Shafts, safety chucks, and brakes are available individually or in packages as part of the Fast Lane program with lead times under three weeks. Shafted unwind stands and slitting modules are available in under five weeks. Customers get the dual benefit of Fast Lane lead times, along with the knowledge that components are precision manufactured to work seamlessly together. These components, roll stands, and modules can be integrated into existing lines to add a new process, improve roll security, replace aging items and/or improve changeover times. Configured roll stands include core shaft, safety chucks, brake, simple web guiding, and basic tension control, while slitting modules feature Gold knife holders and the patented “Expandette” cutting ring which can be replaced without removing the shaft from the machine.
