Why does the thermal paper roll overlap during the winding process?

There are 2 reasons that lead to thermal paper roll overlapping problem.

  • 1st reason

There are some thermal paper slitting machines whose design are not reasonable enough, so the paper rolls will bite each other, wasting materials and increasing costs;

  • 2nd reason

The operator does not know enough about the machine itself and is not familiar with tension control, which causes paper biting during the winding process.

These problems can be solved after operators are familiar with machine operation.

In the past years, many customers have this problem, we have conducted in-depth research and optimization, Jota thermal paper roll slitting machine does not have this problem.

Does cashier paper slitting machine need automatic tension control system?

The automatic tension control system is very important for the thermal paper rolls slitting machine, because the machine often needs to accelerate and decelerate at high speed during the operation, and the tension must be consistent at all times.


The automatic tension control system ensures that the material tension is always consistent in the machine running process.

Does thermal paper slitter need PLC and touch screen?

Many years ago, Jota thermal paper slitter machine did not have PLC and touch screen, so it needs to install a lot of time relay and solid-state relay.

With PLC and touch screen, the operation is simpler and the machine downtime rate is also reduced.


Can thermal paper roll production efficiency be improved?

Jota economical cash register roll making machine’s standard working speed is 110m/min, the maximum speed is 150m/min.

A thermal till roll length is only 10m-55m, which limits the maximum speed performance.

If speed is too fast, after slitting and rewinding 10m-55m thermal paper, the operator is still loading plastic/paper core for next circle, which means the thermal roll machine needs to wait for operator, it is a waste of time.


Besides, faster speed means that tension control requirement is higher, the total thermal till roll making machine price will be higher too.

When producing some 80×80, 80×210 rolls, the speed can be increased to 200m/min on high-end models.

But once the speed of the machine is fast, and the accessories wear is also fast, which affects the life cycle of the machine.

Is cash register roll making machine safe during production?

Our machine has CE certification, and many drive motors and cutter blades have safety covers, which are very safe.


Blades Safety Cover

The machine adopts synchronous belt drive, the noise is not more than 80 decibels.

What is the dimension and weight of thermal roll slitting machine?

37mm thickness frame

The dimension is approximately 1800mm x 1750mm x 1500mm, and the weight is 1200Kg.

The machine can work in the space above the second floor.
