GOEBEL IMS showcases past and future of slitting and winding
solutions for film industry at K 2016

Between October 19 – 26, plastics and rubber professionals will gather at K in Düsseldorf, Germany to discover the industry’s newest solutions and state-of-the-art technologies. At the world’s number-one trade fair for plastics and rubber, GOEBEL IMS will be presenting its newest high-performing slitter rewinders. In North America, GOEBEL IMS machines are distributed by Matik, Inc.


GOEBEL IMS’ decades of experience in mechanical engineering will be impressively displayed at booth 3B73. A vintage slitter rewinder that was sold in 1939 and was used to produce films until 2016 will be on display. True to the motto “The House of Slitting and Winding”, GOEBEL IMS will showcase their long-standing expertise in the film industry and special applications, creating a bridge between past and future, where smart production lines help to increase efficiency. GOEBEL IMS sets high standards in film converting with the MONOSLIT series and the XTRASLIT 2. All slitter rewinders combine high performance and top quality with cutting-edge technology.


At K show, GOEBEL IMS presents the newly designed MONOSLIT series, including the MONOSLIT with a working width of up to 354 inches (9,000 mm) and the MONOSLIT GIANT with a 472 inch (12,000 mm) working width. Both slitter rewinders are designed for converting a broad spectrum of films ranging from BOPP materials for the MONOSLIT GIANT to BOPP, BOPET, OPP, CPP, BOPA, BOPS and other special films. Packaging, capacitor, battery separator and optical films with film thicknesses between 0.5 and 500 µm can be converted with the MONOSLIT series at a speed of up to 4,921 ft./min. (1,500 m/min.), featuring an extremely smooth run at maximum speed while guaranteeing outstanding quality of the end product.  The new design allows for an unwinding diameter of up to 71 inches (1,800 mm) and a rewinding diameter of up to 61 inches (1,550 mm), with winding stations allowing for a maximum finished roll weight of up to 11,023 lbs. (5,000 kg).


Since 2014, GOEBEL IMS’ high-end slitter rewinder XTRASLIT 2 sets new benchmarks in the highly productive processing of films and flexible packaging materials. It is designed for a working width of up to 142 inches (3,600 mm) and can convert material thicknesses between 2 and 400 µm. Throughout the process, the system permits speeds of up to 3,937 ft./min. (1,200 m/min), depending on the material. The newly developed XTRASLIT 2 is a universal machine and, thanks to its design concept, allows for comprehensive adjustments and extensions for special applications, e.g. polyester films for optical fields. The adaption of technical features – for example the slitting and winding systems – ensure a scratch-free surface to fulfill customer-specific requirements and provide maximum performance and sustainable value.


As one of the preferred suppliers of innovative slitting and winding solutions for manufacturers and converters of film industry, GOEBEL IMS continuously strives to offer maximum efficiency, high production speeds and superior slitting and winding quality to its customers.
