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 at ICE Europe in Munich, Germany from 21st – 24th March on Stand A6 245.
The models 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 the 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 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 large diameter ‘clean rolls’ are supplied to the slitter rewinder.”
The IR135 & IR165 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:
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.
