Rockport’s Products

For well over 50 years, Rockport has specialized in equipment for the manufacture of spiral wound tubes and cores, including paper, film, and foil converting. We build spiral tube manufacturing and tube processing machinery that lasts.

Winding Solutions

Rockport Spiral Tube Winders are made using cast and precision machined gear housings, heavy Blanchard ground plate, and top quality, straightforward electrical control systems. Other features include Pneumatic belt tensioning with quick release emergency stop, double-driven capstans and A/C or D/C drive package

Cut Off Solutions

Rockport manufactures 3 specifically sized cut-off saws that are used in conjunction with our Spiral Tube Winder to produce “parent length cores” which allow for easier core handling during the secondary operation. The three models are engineered and manufactured in similar fashion with the primary difference being the available processing power and therefore maximum tube size each may process.

Recutting Solutions

All Rockport recutters are built to perform but also built with the operator in mind. No shortcuts are taken in the design, engineering or manufacture as only the most robust and durable materials are used. Considering cost versus performance over machine lifetime Rockport recutters represent the best value in the marketplace today.

Processing Solutions

Ply printers, glue application, roll stands and dust extraction are just some of the ancillary products available from Rockport.


A variety of items are available to support the processing machinery we manufacture. Rockport is your source for consumables such as cutting blades, tallow blocks and winding belts. While we cannot stock everything, considerable investment has been made in order to carry critical component inventory for Rockport machinery.
