Slitters & Rewinders

PRS and REM have been evolving the slitter & rewinder industry since 1987 with a primary focus on center-surface winding. Since 2015, we have continued to evolve the technology and operation of center-surface winders while continuing to offer options for all other winding methods.


Rewind Rolls are driven from the core, as well as the surface

  • Because of this, the tension range on center-surface winders is the greatest possible available.

Slitting is as near the rewind point as possible

  • Allowing for thin slits with excellent edge quality.

Machines can run as a center winder, surface winder, or both

  • This allows a large variety in the materials that can be ran.



Rewind rolls are driven from the core only

  • With a single motor, the maximum diameter is limited, but the overall cost of the machine is less than a center-surface winder.

Often paired with differential shafts

  • These shafts transmit torque evenly, despite diameter, so materials with gauge bands are able to be ran.

Best for high speed film processing

  • Due to the rider roll, air entrapment is minimized, allowing thin extruded films to be run much faster than possible on other machines.


Various Options for Unwind Control

  • Models can be configured with single brakes, dual brakes, or motors.

Integrated Tension Control

  • Load cells or dancers provide feedback to the tension control loop, allowing the stand to be integrated easily into existing production lines.

Unwind or Rewind

  • Stands, including turreted stands, can be manufactured for use as an unwind stand, or as a rewind stand.
