Web Imaging Automatic Braking System (ABS) for paper machine winders and re-reelers

Expedite the process of finding defect locations in the reel and minimize operator intervention and human error with the automatic slowing or stopping of the electric drive shortly before pre-selected defects are to be inspected or patched.

Winding automation

ABB’s Automatic Braking System is an automatic target-braking system for winders and re-reelers that accurately slows to the marked area and lands on the defect in question precisely, ensuring machine efficiency.

It utilizes footage code marks applied near the edge of the sheet during web inspection coupled with defect location data to facilitate highly accurate and repeatable ramp cycles. With Automatic Braking Solution, papermakers are assured of maximum re-reeler / winder efficiency and increased production output.

Fully automated winder / re-reeler braking system is available as an option to the base configuration of ABB's Web Imaging system (WIS), which detects, photographs, visualizes and traces defects on 100% of the web, and is part of the ABB Ability™ Quality Management System (QMS) integrated solution suite consisting of products, services and applications for quality control.
