Media changer unwinder RX8
Up to 30 percent higher line productivity due to automatic reel change
With the RX8 media changer for automatic roll splicing, we are introducing our latest solution in our unwinder series. In addition to the conventional non-stop feeding of papers of one quality, the RX8 can also be used for printer-controlled* selection between two different papers. With production speeds of up to 152 m/min on the RX8-500 and up to 250 m/min on the RX8-800, the Hunkeler media changer serves printers in high-performance digital printing without sacrificing speed. Thanks to the space-saving side loading with automatic roller lifting from the transport carriage, the solution can be operated ergonomically in a wide variety of environments. As an option, the media changer will also be available in the future with automatic tape preparation, making it even easier for the operator to use. Compared to manual reel splicing, the RX8 can achieve up to 30 percent higher line productivity, depending on print speed and paper weight.
