Reeling process and reeling parameters

Reeling process becomes more demanding if the operating speed and reeling width are high, parent roll diameter is big and/or the paper or board grade requires more sensitive reeling. With the level of difficulty in reeling in mind, the reel types can be divided into two groups. Depending on the reeling process conditions, there are either reels without center drives or reels with center drives.

Reels without center drives are ideal for reeling required by grades and operations with less demanding reeling conditions. Reels with primary or primary and secondary center drives are aimed at the more challenging grades and high-speed production lines typically with online calendering and/or coating.
