AbstractThe invention is a method of automatically threading the wind-up section while the formation section runs at full speed. The stopped wind-up section is threaded with a leader while the formation section runs at full speed. The wind-up section is started. When speeds match the two webs are spliced, the leader is fed from its feed and the production web from waste so that the leader draws the production web through the wind-up section. The splicer may also act as an automatic dump.
