There is a lot of Science that goes into winding. The TNT winding principles are well established and have been proven and modeled at the Web Handling Research Center at OSU in Stillwater, OK.

This paper is a guide for selecting the best type of winder to use in order to consistently produce quality, defect-free rolls of web material. We will discuss the winding principles, how they are used on different types of winders, and present product parameters that each type of Winder is best suited for.
