Atlas Converting launch range of Inspection Rewinder machines at ICE Europe

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) are proud to announce that they will be launching a range of Inspection rewinder machines to complement the Titan range of slitter rewinders will present its range of Primary & secondary slitter rewinders as well as demonstrating the latest generation of the TITAN SR800 Series slitting & rewinding technology at Drupa 2016ICE Europe in DüsseldorfMunich, Germany from 31st 21st – 24th MarchMay – 10th June, on Stand 12-D55 in Hall 12A6 245. 

The rangemodels IR60, IR135, IR165 and RR165  of  inspection machines are designed to meet the market requirements for different web widths and complement the range of Titan slitter rewinder machines offering superior reliability, quality and productivity.

The Titan series of Inspection machines will unwind, inspect and rewind material from 60cm (24”) to 165cm (65”) width material to improve the quality of the mother rolls that go into yourthe slitter rewinder, eliminating the need to stop the slitter therefore increasing the slitting efficiency and slit quality.

Identifying defects in the web can be done by either by a fully automatic 100% inspection system, manually using stroboscopic systems or by entering multiple stop signals based upon the flag location. The machines are high speed, fully reversible and with the inclusion of splice table the operator can remove all defects greatly reducing waste and time. 

Barrie Homewood, Sales Director for Titan products says, “These inspection machines complement our range of Titan Slitter Rewinders and deliver enhanced slitter productivity and quality for our customers”. He also states that, “real productivity improvements are seen when producing ‘Multilane’ rolls that only require rewinding to a defined length and edge trimming the RR135 and RR165 are ideal work horses freeing up the slitter rewinder to do the multiple lane jobs”.

large diameter ‘clean rolls’ are supplied to the slitter rewinder.”

The IRR135 & IRR165 Compact Inspection machines can also be used to splice together smaller mother roll diameters and deliver a larger mother roll again increasing efficiencies of the slitter.

In addition to above features the RR165 with its overhead web path can incorporate additional ‘valued added’ processes such as web laser perforation / scoring and other web treatments.

The range of Titan Inspection machines can process the following:

  • Laminates
  • Film
  • Paper
  • Metallised film
  • Aluminium foil

Other materials can be processed if they are within the specified tension range of the machine.

The Titan SR800 Series slitter rewinder not only provides much higher performance & improved productivity, but also a more flexible and sustainable solution in slitting & rewinding.

In the development of the SR800, Atlas focused its product development strategy on achieving significant reductions in machine downtime for printers & converters, including reduced set change time, lower operator intervention and also reduction of costly waste materials - which all add up to outstanding productivity gains. Aside from operating at the cutting edge of efficiency and productivity, our advanced engineering design has also led to significant improvements in the quality of the final slit reels and significant reductions in set-up procedures. 

Aside from the SR800 on demonstration the Titan range includes the ER610, the SR9-DS and SR9-DT.

The ER610 is  an aff aor dable high performancecompact slitter rewinder delivering a cost effective solution with the added benefits of reduced power consumption and no hydraulics meaning lower energy bills and zero risk of contamination.

The SR9 series of slitter rewinders represent the pinnacle of secondary slitter rewinder development delivering the optimum quality of rewound final packages utilising out our linear tracking slitter section which maintains a constant minimum distance between knives and rewind shafts giving better control of the slit webs ensuring the highest side wall quality.

The SR9-DT builds on the benefits of the SR9-DS adding the benefits of dual a turret rewind meaning that the cycle time from stop to restart is typically less than 30 seconds!  Think of what that could do for your productivity.

The Atlas primary slitter rewinder platform introduces the next generation of more compact film slitting solutions operating with web widths from 2.5 to 10.5 metres (100 – 410 ins.) and delivers higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems.

This latest Atlas technology also features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning, direct drive web path rollers and running speeds of up to 1,500 m/min. (4,920 ft./min.) with more precise web tension control.  Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated in to the machines to reduce the space required for installation with ‘under floor’ service trenches also no longer required for the primary slitter rewinders.

As well as learning about how our technology can deliver real business benefits, on hand will also be representatives from our service department to discuss how we can assist you with service contracts, spare parts and machine upgrades to enhance your existing machine performance ensuring your equipment is as efficient as possible.

With its brands of Atlas & Titan, Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of primary and secondary slitter rewinders for plastic films, label stock, laminates and other flexible materials.  The company has to date installed more than 2.600 secondary Titan and 1000 Atlas primary slitter rewinders worldwide, with over 250 film slitters exceeding 6 metres (236  ins) in width.
