Spooling and Finishing
Custom finishing personalizes your product or converts it into a format that works best for your process, whether you need user-friendly finished rolls or long-length spools to decrease machine stoppage.
Budnick has the capabilities to convert and laminate adhesive to almost any material with nearly any specification, allowing you to create customized products.
Rewind finishing allows the customization of both the final roll size and unwind direction while also serving as an addition to the quality check process.
Budnick offers a variety of packaging options so you can get your product delivered in the ideal format for your production processes.
Decrease downtime in your production process by combining multiple rolls into long-length spools that will reduce machine stoppage and increase efficiency.
What We Offer
Budnick can procure jumbo rolls of adhesive tape from most manufacturers. We can convert this adhesive to your desired width and laminate it to almost any specified material. You may want to contract us out to laminate your material.
A variety of rewind finishing tables are used to customize your roll size and unwind direction. Rewind finishing also serves as a secondary quality check of materials.
Packaging is a critical, yet often overlooked attribute to your product. Budnick can shrink wrap rolls, custom print labels for cores, boxes, and bagging, provide various inner diameter cores, ship material with plain or printed cores and boxes, barcode products or cases, assemble kits and customize your product in many other ways.
Spooling is the process of splicing together a series of cut rolls of material and wrapping them together as one reel. Spooled rolls are traverse wound onto one wide core. By creating one reel of material, we can decrease your downtime in production. Moreover, our multiple head spooler is capable of producing reels of narrow width products that would be tough to handle in a traditional "pancake" form. The multiple head spooler also is equipped with a die station, which allows us to provide extended tabs (finger lifts) on double coated adhesive tapes.
Budnick ensures that our customers' product is in the ideal form for their process. Read more below about how we've added extra touches to make product perfect.
