High speed rodmaker

The Ares is the only rodmaker in the industry that has been specifically designed to run on sheet materials. The Ares rodmaker has been created for customers with the highest speed requirements. In several configurations, the Ares has recorded the highest speeds in the industry. Apart from the extra long garniture section, the setup of the Ares machine is based on a modular philosophy, using separate servo drives for all different stages in the process.This aspect greatly enhances the machine flexibility and capability to run on highly variable product specs.

The Ares rodmaker is the ideal machine to use in combination with the other high speed machines in the SCM portfolio, such as the Orion headshaper, Aeolus spiral overroller, the Max 80 filter attachment machine and the Minerva/Minervus tip attachment machines.
