Atlas and partners demo latest technologies
Atlas Converting North America reports a highly successful inauguration of its new demonstration center at a recent open house event in September in Charlotte, NC.
More than 30 guests watched live demonstrations of the new Titan SR9 Series Dual Turret (DT) slitter rewinder together with presentations from partner suppliers Dienes (slitting technology), BST (web guiding and inspection) and LasX (laser perforation and scoring).
The Titan SR9-DT rewinder was processing a 50 micron, clear BOPP plastic film supplied in collaboration with Triangle Plastics. The demos were running at speeds of up to 3,300 ft/min (1,000 m/min) with turret cycle times of less than 30 seconds.
In the development of the Titan SR9 Series, Atlas focused on achieving significant reductions in machine downtime for printers and converters with lower operator intervention and reduction of costly waste materials – which all adds up to outstanding gains in productivity and sustainability.
The concept of the Titan SR9 Series technology platform features three separate machine modules of unwind, slitter and rewind sections. A converter need only change the rewind section of the machine from a dual shaft (DS) to a single turret (ST) or dual turret (DT) configuration to meet changing production requirements without the need to change the existing unwind and slitting modules.
Innovative engineering design has led to application for four patents on the Titan SR9 Series including the turret support device (TSD) for faster turret rotation on the DT model. To maintain focus on its objectives for sustainability, the Titan SR9 Series has many features for achieving reductions in the cost of energy and of waste materials. Atlas says the Titan SR9 Series is set to smash all productivity records and provides a genuinely flexible and sustainable new approach to slitting and rewinding for a wide range of flexible materials including plain, coated and printed film.
A new service platform for Atlas & Titan slitter rewinders is now in place. This provides 24/7 customer service and support operations with engineers based locally in Charlotte, USA; the UK, India and China, confirming the company as a global supplier providing complete customer satisfaction.
