RE: The tariff classification of roll unwind unit from Italy.

Dear Mr. Carrella:

In your letter dated April 2, 1990, on behalf of Meschi Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question is a roll unwind unit. This device is a free- standing electric motor driven roll paper unwinding machine. Its maximum adjustment up and down dimensions ranges from 10.2-inches to 11.4-inches. The widest top plate measurements are 25.5-inches by 29-inches. The roll unwind unit mounts into the floor of a computer room in which the floors are raised. It physically sits on the sub floor, and is adjusted to the height of the raised floor by adjustable feet. This unwind unit weighs approximately 220-pounds.

This roll "unwinder" unit contains a paper roll which rests on a series of belts which when driven by the motor, turn the paper roll in the opposite direction from that in which it was originally wound on the core. Two adjustment knobs serve to adjust the rails for various paper width. The speed of the unwinding is controlled to match the speed of the printer. This unwinder unit is cable connected to the "supercompact" pre/post processor, which in turn is connected to the laser printer.

The applicable subheading for the roll unwind unit will be 8472.90.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other office machines. The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
