This new machine is designed to allow fiber to be fed vertically and pre-opened with a feedroll, main cylinder and brush roll. Rando rolls are wired vs. the competitors pinned rolls. Wired rolls are more cost effective to manufacture and require less servicing by the customer, keeping your line up and running! Robustly built, the Rando Vertical Pre-Opener is manufactured in standard widths from 36” to 100”. It is highly recommended for BICO, Natural, Metal and Ceramic fibers. Our engineers are dedicated to finding new ways to open high-cost fiber such as BICO. Ensuring all bundles, tufts and filaments are 99% opened saves on material costs and creates better bonding characteristics.
The vertical design creates a smaller footprint than earlier designed pre-openers that fed horizontally, thus running cleaner with gravity and constant vacuum pressure.
In trials The Rando Vertical Pre-Opener was used successfully with natural fibers for reducing breakage. Rando had great success in running fiberglass in stick form; pre-opening the sticks so downstream equipment can process the fiber with less fiber loss and better opening.
This new machine from Rando can be mounted to other feeding machines or can be pneumatically fed. The fibers are pre-opened and are removed with an air handling system to the next machine in use. It can also be used as a standalone machine.

Since 1949, Rando Machine has been the pioneer in air laid technology for the nonwoven textile industry. Headquartered in Victor, New York, Rando Machine added a second manufacturing location in Lafayette, Indiana after coming under new ownership in 2019. Rando offers a complete line of machinery from Fiber Preparation to Web Formation. As a global provider; Rando has no geographical limits and their machines can process both synthetic and natural fibers, as well as metallic and ceramic, all with outstanding track records!

Preventative Maintenance programs

RANDO’S LATEST INNOVATION – HIGH LOFT CONDENSER MAKING 10” INCH HIGH WEBS POSSIBLE!

Rando now offers three types of forming styles that all can be used on the main frame of their Webbers:

SB Condenser – heavier fibers, 100 denier and above

SD Condenser – finer fibers, nano up to 100 denier

SHL Condenser – the capability of the SD style with added high loft, up to 10” inches in height

The SHL Condenser allows you to form webs from 3/4″ inch to 10″ inches highby only changing the speeds on the HMI.  The SHL Condenser excels with a wide range of fibers including fiberglass, synthetic fibers, and natural fibers such as hemp, jute, wood, and cotton.

REPLACMENT PARTS / SERVICE

Rando is proud to announce the launch of its new product – the Rando™ Shredder Waste Reducer / Refiberizer; designed to refiberize and reclaim excess finished material produced from a nonwoven line.
The Rando™ Shredder Waste Reducer / Refiberizer is outfitted with state-of-the-art technology to break down edge trimmings into small, uniform tufts that can then be reintroduced to production and blended to create a finished product.

Material transformation:

  • Material travels down a textured conveyor.
  • The edge trimmings are distributed into the feed rolls.
  • The feed rolls tightly pinch the fibers, and distribute them into the shredder’s main cylinder.
  • The main cylinder, equipped with more than 1,500 bear claws, shreds the fiber into uniform tufts, which are transported back into the production line by vacuum fans.

Customers report that excess material trimmed from the finished products take a heavy expense on their organizations — outside services are hired to remove and dispose of the excess material. A Rando™ Shredder Waste Reducer / Refiberizer eliminates this expense and refiberizes the excess fiber so it can be blended into their finished product.

Bottom Line: The Rando™ Reclaim Shredder provides an attractive option for manufacturers looking to save money and improve environmental practices, creating a more efficient and environmentally sound practice for the organization.
