Contact pads are the most important part of the clamp attachment. In most normal handling situations, the pads are the only parts of the clamp which actually are in contact with the paper roll.
Therefore, Bolzoni Auramo has paid special attention in designing and manufacturing contact pads which will ensure safe and non-damaging roll handling. All Bolzoni Auramo contact pads have the following properties in common:
Thin pad design. The minimized pad thickness ensures good knifing properties when handling tightly stacked rolls.
Well-rounded, smooth pad profile and safe finish. The pads have no protruding parts or edges to damage the adjacent paper rolls.
Safe finish. All sharp edges have been carefully removed.
Steering front edge. The friction surface has a special form, which steers the pad easier around the roll.
Smooth wear strips on short arm side. Added safety margin against inevitable tear and wear against the floor.
Pad radius suitable for the roll diameter.
Well protected hinge system.
Positioning springs to keep the pads straight in relation to the roll. Less damage to pads and paper rolls.
Pull rods to prevent the contact pad from turning too much. Less damage to the pads and loads.
Contact pad friction surfaces: Contact pads are equipped with a wide variety of friction surfaces. The application, customer requirements and paper and wrapper type define the required friction surface. The most common friction surfaces are:
