K100 Roll to Roll


Kern's 'roll to roll' solutions enable operators to load and unload rolls of paper quickly and easily. Threading paper through the modules is done automatically.

Kern's 'roll to roll' modules are capable of unwinding and rewinding rolls up to 54" in diameter - instead of the standard 51". The additional 3 inches in roll diameter provide room for up to 10,000 more sheets per roll.

This means that rolls do not have to be changed as frequently during printing and finishing processes - a fact which translates into increased productivity and reduced costs.
