Atlas Converting Equipment will present its range of primary and secondary slitter rewinders as well as demonstrating the latest generation of the TITAN SR800 Series slitting and rewinding technology at drupa 2016 in Düsseldorf, on Stand 12-D55 in Hall 12.
The Titan SR800 Series provides high performance and improved productivity and is also a more flexible and sustainable solution in slitting and rewinding. In the development of the machine, Atlas focused its product development strategy on achieving significant reductions in machine downtime for printers and converters, including reduced set change time, lower operator intervention and also reduction of costly waste materials – which all add up to outstanding productivity gains.
As well as this, the Titan range includes the ER610, the SR9-DS and SR9-DT. The ER610 is a compact slitter rewinder delivering a cost effective solution with the added benefits of reduced power consumption and no hydraulics meaning lower energy bills and less risk of contamination.
The SR9 series of slitter rewinders represents the pinnacle of secondary slitter rewinder development delivering the optimum quality of rewound final packages. This utilises the company’s 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 turret rewind meaning that the cycle time from stop to restart is typically less than 30 seconds. 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.
This latest technology also features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning, direct drive web path rollers and running speeds of up to 1,500m/min with more precise web tension control. Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated into the machines to reduce the space required for installation with ‘under floor’ service trenches also no longer required for the primary slitter rewinders.
Representatives will be on-hand at the show to discuss how the company can assist with service contracts, spare parts and machine upgrades to enhance existing machine performance.
