Model: Versus Soft - Rotary Coating Machines
The Versus Soft started life as a "reverse" rollcoater for soft
garment and shoe leather. The machine may be re-equipped upon request with a
"synchro" doctor blade for "millepunti" effect coating.
The insertion of the leather is accomplished by a double spreading feed-in
conveyor and by an introduction device with a specifically treated steel knife
for the processing of large quantities of leather. The proper deposition and
application of the pigment is further assured by utilising the new type
"H" helicoidal rollers and by the specially configured throat between
the feed conveyor, the pigment roller and the transport conveyor.
The service life of the mechanical components, of the transport conveyor, of the
pigment roller and of the feed-in device is safeguarded by the ABS system (an
Incoma patent) which in the event of a leather jam automatically opens the above
devices before overload conditions dangerous for the machine can occur .
Spreading conveyors, mainly composed of two washable bells where leather is laid
out and conveyed to the coating roller. The speed of the feeding conveyors is
synchronized in relation to the speed of the rubber conveyor, and when necessary
this synchronization can be modified to optimise the spread of the leather.
Introduction device (patented): when the leather comes out from the spreading
conveyors, it is guided by this introduction device which facilitates the
feeding of the leather through the coating roller; supported at its ends by our
very effective special compensating device (also patented), it grants a perfect
alignment with the coating roller.
A.B.S. (antiblock-system): safety system with adjustable regulation which can
sense possible jamming of the leather between the coating roller and the
conveyor belt. This system is particularly efficient and when activated it
allows the simultaneous opening of the coating roller and the introduction
device from the underneath conveyor belt, allowing the leather to proceed
without the stopping of the coating roller and the conveyor belt. The normal
working mode is then simply re-set by means of a push-button.
Use also of helicoidal rollers type "H" which facilitate the
introduction of soft leather in "reverse".
Coating roller washing automatic system by means of compressed air water jet.
The doctor blade (opening and closing pneumatically operated) is fixed on to the
mobile structure of the coating roller. Its position can also be manually
regulated, in order to vary the contact angle of the doctor blade with the
