lays the paper down in the same fashion going
in the opposite direction. The process is
repeated until the tube is full. The paper
products are manufactured in different widths.
thus the paper guide's linear distance per
revolution of the tube must be changeable.
The winding speed also varies from product
to product too.

A Mitsubishi amplifier and motor were chosen
to drive a THK linear slide because of the
ease of programming and its electronic gearing
capability. An Aromat PLC was chosen to sense
the proximity limit switches and in turn control
the direction of the linear slide as well
as count the encoder pulses in the reversal
corners to insure a level wind.
