Fully Automated Reel Turn-up System

(Dispenser Assembly, Electrical Enclosure, & HMI)


TUSA 5 is the first integrated intellegent fully automated turn-up system designed for high speed and dynamic reel applications.

Standard Features

UNI-CHARGER Loopless Technology
  • Patented Loopless design
  • Overcomes speed limitations of traditional "loop design"
  • Unidirectional unwind provides smooth delivery of paperband
  • De curls, realigns, and protects paperband for higher yields, effortless loads, and reliable feeds
Automated Adhesive Application
  • Programmable adhesive length
  • Self lock adhesive detection plate for ease of reloading
  • Optical adhesive detection
Nip Aquisition Technology
  • Nip Acquisition detection Algorithm (NADA) provides for precision timing in changing reel conditions
Dynamic Reel Speed Selection
  • Ensures proper charge length and sequencing to eliminate missed turn-ups at high speeds
