Wide Slitting Addition

Midwest adds more slitting and rerolling capacity with a new machine capable of handling 131″ wide rolls with finished roll diameters of 40″. High speed shaftless unwind with excellent tension control provide efficient and quality rolls. This machine adds to 8 other rerolling and slitting machines handling widths up to 160″ and finished roll diameters of up to 56″. Thus, Midwest can provide quick and timely responses to requirements for converted rolls.

Tape Application

A new capability has been added at Midwest to precision apply two sided adhesive tape to nonwoven fabrics.

Fabric Molding and Compression

Midwest adds to its fabric molding capability. Larger size molded parts can now be made. Equipment can now handle a wider range of media types providing better control over dimensional tolerances.

Water Filtration

Midwest has now expanded its presence in the water filtration market by producing custom filter wraps. These wraps can be precision cut with compressed edges. This unique capability is provided by the belt driven die press acquired in late 2008.
