Introducing the AFI Systems Strapping Winders

AFI has a long history of working with all types of winder systems. We can manufacture new dancer-controlled winders custom built for your application, or alternatively we can refurbish your existing outdated winders and install new Allen-Bradley PLC Controls, with open-source code so that your engineers and maintenance staff can troubleshoot problems or make changes to tailor to your process as needed. Our winder systems can operate with regular traverse winding, points winding or cross-spooling. Data entry is streamlined for easy setup and operation, and password-protected maintenance functions provide for quick and easy troubleshooting. We can customize the controls for your specific application if needed.

Web Winders - let us upgrade/modernize your system for you!

We can retrofit your outdated web winder/unwind control systems with new drives and PLC systems, including DC to AC motor conversion if preferred. We have completed installations utilizing up to 13 drives including dual turret winder and unwind stands, using Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC and multiple Panel-views for controls. Although we prefer to use Allen-Bradley PLC and HMIs due to their long-term reliability and support, we can at your request use the brand of drives and controls of your choice. We have completed projects using Siemens, Beckhoff Automation, Automation Direct, Omron and others.
