Winding machines for a wide variety of web-shaped materials are our special competence. Whether nonwovens, textiles, technical textiles, paper, sensitive membranes, glass fabrics, rubber, rigid films, glass fibers or carbon fibers - we have the know-how to wind these materials reliably. Based on your individual requirements and our wide range of winding machines, we design the ideal winding process for the material.

A-Frame Winder

On the a-frame system developed by Menzel, rolls with a diameter of up to 2 meters can be optimally wound with the aid of specially designed center winders. This can be done on special stationary winding frames as well as on mobile docking carriages. The advantage of this system is the long running times and short changeover times. Winding machines for large reels can either be built as a system with manual roll change or with fully automatic reel change.

Center winder

Depending on the sensitivity of your material, center winders with controlled drives in torque or speed can be used. These are available in different variants, as a mobile device or permanently installed.


The MENZEL electric center drive (german: MENZEL-Elektro-Zentrums-Antrieb) is suitable for different use on all lines at different winding points.

Support Roller Winder

We have already realized support roller winders up to 15 m width. This type of winder is often used to wind large and heavy rolls onto small core diameters. Here, the material roll rests with its full weight on the support rolls. Thus, there are no problems with deflection of winding shafts. Depending on the application and material type, the winders are used with or without fabric accumulators. Automatic roll change is possible in both cases.
