Producing without interruption
The more and more frequent change of the decorative material reel is one way in which the trend towards higher individualization shows in profile wrapping. Working with a common simple unwinding station, this often means an interruption of the finally successfully running production process. 
After changing the reel, the whole process has to be restarted from the very beginning, which means once more producing waste and waste parts. 
In addition, when producing at a higher pace, frequent reel changes can become a time consuming factor. 
In order to minimize downtimes and gain more time for production, düspohl has developed the automatic reel changer. The ends of the subsequently used reels will be stuck together during the production process.

Quality of adhesive application
To assure a homogenous application of the adhesive, the automatic reel changer is equipped with an automatically adjusting break. The break force is constantly adjusted to the current reel diameter to make sure that the material tensions stays constant. This way, you also avoid cracks in the foil.  

Easy handling

Thanks to two set-up aids, positioning the decorative material while producing gets really easy. 



  • continuous production
  • up to 33% more production capacity in comparison to a single unwinding station depending on the material and considering identical production parameters
  • automatic reel change also in case of material crack or end of reel
  • includes web edge control for exact positioning of decorative material
  • constant tension of decorative material enables homogenous glue application
  • automatic stop of reel when production stops
  • sensitive adjustment of the braking power for tension-sensitive winding materials
  • further options: film cleaning and deionisation / film cutting
