Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder FAQ Guide

Thermal Paper

What’s Thermal Paper?

The so-called thermal paper refers to the information recording paper, it is made by base paper coated with the color-forming material. Once color-forming material is excited by the thermal signal, it displays its own color.

In other words, thermal paper is a specially coated paper, once energy (heat energy) is given to its surface, the coated color developer’s physical or chemical properties change, and then display an image.

In short, it is to coat material on ordinary white paper’s one side, and it will turn black when heated, showing fonts, numbers, patterns, etc.

Thermal paper has developed rapidly with the popularity of fax machines all over the world.

However, due to the development of electronic communications, thermal paper is not only popular in personal households in the form of fax paper, but also in businesses, supermarkets, banks, and hospitals, airports, and other fields.

Its use is becoming more and more extensive, the variety is increasing day by day, the scope of application is getting wider and wider.


Thermal Paper Uses

For example, when we buy something in a supermarket and pay at the cashier, the cashier will give you a receipt. The white receipt paper is made of thermal paper, which is called thermal cash register paper in the industry.

Also, after many people withdraw money from the bank’s ATM machine, they will print the receipt. The bank receipt is also made of thermal paper, but the advertisement is printed on the reverse side.

In addition, when we place a meal order in some middle and high-end restaurants, the receipts for the restaurant charges are also thermal paper.

Why is the thermal paper used in a lot of places, and the amount used is large?

Because thermal printers do not need ink, are relatively less polluting, have a long service life, and are easy to maintain.

Thermal Paper Sizes

For thermal paper size, it mainly refers to the size of the thermal paper roll. There are two types of thermal paper rolls, one is thermal paper jumbo roll and the other is small thermal till roll.

The size of the thermal paper jumbo roll is mainly marked with the following three parameters:

Core Diameter

See this picture below:


The width of this thermal paper jumbo roll is 640mm, the length is 6000m, and the core diameter is 3 inches.


For small thermal till roll, the three size-marking parameters used are slightly different, they are:

Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder

What Is Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder?

The thermal paper slitter rewinder is a kind of roll slitting machine, it can slit the 400mm-1400mm jumbo thermal paper rolls into mainstream 57mm and 80mm small thermal till rolls.

This thermal paper slitter rewinder can be divided into the unwinding part, the web-feeding part, the slitting part, the winding part, the waste discharging part, the control part, etc. according to different functions.

In addition to processing huge rolls of thermal paper, thermal paper slitter rewinder can also be used to slit non-woven fabrics and water activated kraft paper tapes.


Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Working Principle

The main motor in the thermal paper slitter rewinder drives the winding shaft and the functional rollers to rotate through the timing belt, and the tension generated by the rotation drives the unwinding shaft to rotate.

With the unwinding shaft’s rotation, the jumbo roll on the unwinding shaft moves forward continuously, and after moving to the slitting part, it becomes several strips of separated paper tape after being cut by the slitting knife.

The separated paper tapes are pasted on the winding shaft first, and then follow the rotation of the winding shaft, finally becomes a small roll of thermal paper.

For thermal paper slitter rewinder, tension control is the most important thing in the working process.


Tension Controller

With the continuous reduction of the unwinding diameter, the unwinding tension becomes smaller and smaller. At this time, it is necessary to introduce a magnetic powder brake to increase the braking torque and compensate for the smaller and smaller unwinding tension;

With the continuous increase of the winding diameter, the winding tension becomes larger and larger. At this time, it is essential to introduce the magnetic powder clutch or manual clutch to reduce the braking torque and release the larger and larger winding tension.

Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Video

Every time before shipping thermal paper slitter rewinder to customers, we Jota will shoot a test video for customers’ thermal paper slitter rewinder machine.

Recently, we have just sent a JT-SLT-1400C thermal paper slitter rewinder to the Jamaican customer Brake. The JT-SLT-1400C thermal paper slitter rewinder testing video is shown below:

Which Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Manufacturer Is Better?

Relatively speaking, some well-known thermal paper slitter rewinder machine manufacturers in Europe and the United States produce better machines, such as Jennerjahn (Since 1979) in the United States and Lemugroup (Since 1963) in Spain.

Because these companies already exist and have developed dozens of years or even hundreds of years, the accumulation of technology has reached a certain height, so the quality is relatively reliable.

Due to their machines’ good quality, the price is relatively high. After all, you get what you pay for.

But now there are some excellent suppliers of thermal paper slitter rewinder in China, and we Jota is one of them.



The thermal paper slitter rewinder produced by we Jota has been favored by customers all over the world, and they all praised Jota’s thermal paper slitting machine with thumbs up.

How Much Is A Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder?

The thermal paper slitter rewinder’s price varies greatly depending on the brand, unwinding width, and degree of automation.

The price of thermal paper slitting and rewinding machine produced by some Indian and Chinese manufacturers is only 7000-8000 US dollars;

Thermal paper production lines supplied by European and American manufacturers like Lemugroup in Spain and Jennerjahn in the United States costs 100,000 or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Operation Process

In order to better understand the operation process of the thermal paper slitter rewinder machine, please view the following demonstration video:

Why Does The Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Always Have Paper Breaks Problem?

The problem of paper breaks is mainly due to improper tension settings during the slitting process.

When the unwinding tension is too high, the front rewinding shaft keeps rotating, pulling the paper forward, and the magnetic powder brake at the unwinding shaft is pulling the paper backward, and the paper breaks after being continuously pulled reversely.

At this time, the set tension must be reduced on the tension controller.

How To Avoid Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder’s Overlapping Problem?

The following aspects can be considered to solve the paper overlapping problem:

The rewinding shaft and lay-on roller’s balance and lay-on roller pressure control;

Tension control;

The design of the thermal paper slitter rewinder itself.

Our Jota thermal paper slitting machine is equipped with a lay-on roller, precision pressure regulator, automatic tension controller, etc. These parts are designed to solve the problem of paper overlapping.

How To Avoid The Telescope Problem Of Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder?

In order to avoid the telescope problem of thermal paper slitter rewinder, the rolls should be wound tightly enough against the core at the beginning of winding.

After hard winding against the core for a while, as the winding roll becomes larger and larger, the winding tightness should be decreased.

The larger the winding diameters, the more important the roll tightness and hardness at the winding start.

Different Tension Control Types Of Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder

1. Manual tension control.

2. Diameter measurement control

Follower arm sensor

Ultrasound sensor

Diameter calculator encoder

3. Tension measurement control

(1) Dancer roll

Pivot arm type dancer roll

Linear dancer roll

Rotational type dancer roll

(2) Load cell

Open-loop controls

Closed-loop controls

Combination controls

4. Combination ultrasound/dancer tension control

5. Combination closed loop/open loop tension control

How Does The Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Achieve Constant Tension Throughout The Whole Process?

The current thermal paper slitter rewinder machine is equipped with a fully automatic tension controller.

As long as the appropriate initial tension is set, the tension sensor will detect the actual tension in real-time, and compare the real-time tension with the initial set value.

The tension is calculated by the tension controller, and the result is fed back to the PLC, and then the PLC sends commands to the magnetic powder brake to ensure that the tension set value and the actual tension value are basically the same.

In this way, the constant tension control of the whole process is realized.

What Auxiliary Equipment And Raw Materials Are Needed To Start The Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder?

To open a thermal paper slitting machine, in addition to the thermal paper slitter rewinder machine, some auxiliary equipment and raw materials are also needed. The most basic auxiliary equipment and raw materials mainly include:

Air compressor;

Thermal paper jumbo roll;

Plastic core and paper core.

Some customers who have purchased thermal paper roll production lines need more auxiliary equipment and raw materials. If you are interested in purchasing a thermal paper roll production line, please contact us for details.

How Many Small Rolls Can A Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Produce In One Day?

Take 565mm width jumbo roll, 56mm x 50mm small roll, 8 hours working time as an example.

The length of a small 56mm x 50mm roll is 20m;

One rewinding can produce 10 small rolls of 56mm x 50mm;

The maximum speed of a thermal paper slitting machine is 120-150m/min, and the maximum speed of some high-end machines can reach 300m/min;

It takes about 4s (20/300×60)-10s (20/120×60) to rewind one circle.

If you purchase an economical thermal paper slitting machine, skilled workers also need 20-25s to manually load core, manually cut and glue tail, and manually change the rewinding shaft, so the time required for one rewinding is the 30s, one minute can rewind 2 circles, 8 hours can rewind 2x60x8=960 circles, 960×10=9600 small rolls;

If you purchase a high-end 1400mm width automatic thermal paper roll production line, on average, it can complete one rewinding circle in 10s, 6 times a minute, 8 hours can rewind 6x60x8=2880 circles, and 22 pieces can be rewound each time, 2880×22=63360 pieces.

How Many Tons Of Jumbo Roll Can A Thermal Paper Slitter Rewinder Consume Per Day?

Take 8 working hours a day for example.

If it is an ordinary thermal paper slitter rewinder machine, you need to manually load the core, manually cut and glue the tail, and manually change the rewinding shaft, you can produce 9600 small 56mm x 50mm thermal paper rolls in 8 hours.

The thickness of the thermal paper is 55gsm, the 56mm x 50mm roll width is 56mm, the 56mm x 50mm small roll length is 20m, and the weight of each 56mm x 50mm small roll is 0.055×0.056×20=0.0616Kg.

The weight of 9600 small 56mm x 50mm rolls is 0.0616×9600=591.36Kg, which is approximately equal to 0.6 tons;

If it is a high-end 1400mm width automatic thermal paper roll production line, the weight of 63360 pcs 56mm x 50mm small rolls is 0.0616×63360=3902.976Kg, which is approximately 3.93 tons.

How About Opening A Thermal Paper Slitting Factory?
