Title: Winding machine having continuous loop and tension device and process for using winding machine

Abstract: Winding machine and process for producing at least one wound roll from a supplied material web. The winding machine includes a core formed by a tube, on which the material web is rolled into a wound roll, and at least one winding gap, which regulates the winding tightness formed between the core and the wound roll originating thereon. The winding machine also includes at least one winding roller, and at least one pre-tensioned continuous loop encircling at least one winding roller. The process includes passing the material web over at least one pre-tensioned continuous loop encircling at least one winding roller, the material web being one of paper or cardboard, and regulating the winding tightness of the at least one wound roll with a winding gap between a winding roll and the material web or a core, comprising a tube. The process further includes winding the at least one wound roll on the core, wherein the tension of the at least one pre-tensioned continuous loop is adjusted by at least one tensioning device.
