WF and Winshoes, the new machines by Wintech for the safety industryIn its history, Wintech has always operated in the safety footwear sector with the thermoplastic boot of the WLX series, providing assistance and solutions to customers operating in this sector.
In recent years, the company has reinforced its commitment to extending the range of machines dedicated to “Safety”, in order to offer its clientele machines designed for the most important safety product lines.
The next major step for the company was the creation of the WF series dedicated to the polyurethane injected boot with a sole both in PU and in TPU. This series of machines stands out for its extremely efficient productive cycle, which allows for a greater productive capacity than other similar machines currently available on the market. It also optimizes the time needed for curing. The rotary multi-station structure, which is both efficient and solid, allows the flash of the boots to be reduced, while also controlling the thicknesses, thus benefiting the quality of the final product. The electronics, which are reliable and well structured, together with the software developed in-house, allow this big and complex machine to be managed in a simple and dependable way.
With the “Winshoes” series, Wintech returns to the world of “Direct soling” with a machine characterized by innovative technical solutions.
The range is proposed in mono density, dual density, and in combination with TPU. The patented mould-holder, with an original system of closing and an electronically controlled pouring unit, allow for the production of TPU outsoles with a reduced thickness that cannot be found in any other machine. The innovative ring support guarantees excellent closing on the upper, automatically compensating for the mould differences, unlike other machines currently available on the market, while above all simplifying and making all the external operations on the rotary machine easier to carryout with a patented “open space” opening system on the front of the machine.
At the same time, with its greater number of opening strokes than that of the competition, this frontal system of rings simplifies, in particular, operations of silicone sealing, while also increasing the quality of the product and the productivity of the machine. The advantages of this new system extend to include all operations in the mould area, including mounting the inserts, mounting complete soles, changing the mould, as well as adjusting and cleaning the mould.
The electronics of Winshoes has been developed with the aim of creating an extremely versatile machine. The machine operates as part of a combined mold with all the other peripheral units of the rotary machine, from the injectors to all of the automation, insomuch that every unit can be replaced and is interchangeable for eventual maintenance operations. The software developed by Wintech guarantees the maximum flexibility in all the various productive phases of the machine, helping also prevent eventual failures, while limiting the number of discards and halts in production.
This wide range of solutions adopted by Winshoes makes it not only innovative and extremely reliable, but above all, extremely efficient in production, thus surpassing all other machines currently available on the market.
