Sales coup for Atlas in Brazil
ATLAS CONVERTING Equipment is to supply six Atlas film slitters and three Titan secondary slitter rewinders for three new BOPP film production lines in Brazil. The film lines are to be installed in separate phases during the second half of 2011 and the first half of 2012 at Videolar, Manaus, where the company has invested in an extensive, purpose-built green field production site.
Atlas will provide three 8.3m (327 inches) wide CW984 primary film slitters, three 2850mm (112 inches) wide CW800 secondary film slitters and three 2050mm (81 inches) wide Titan SR8 twin-shaft cantilever slitter rewinders for narrower width film slitting. One of each type of slitter rewinder will be installed during the second half of this year.
Videolar is a large Brazilian company and a newcomer to the world of BOPP film production. However, it has a long history of doing business in the production of raw materials for polystyrene, video tapes, audio cassette tapes, CD and DVD discs.
The Titan SR8 cantilever slitter rewinder is the bestselling product in the Titan range with more than 250 machines now installed worldwide. The capability of handling a wide variety of flexible materials up to 2250mm (88 inches) wide at high production speeds is an essential part of its sales performance, with a maximum rewind diameter of 800mm (32 inches) and running at production speeds of up to 700 m/min (2,300 ft/min). The Titan SR8 slitters supplied to Videolar will feature a digital knife positioning system and an automated slit reel unloading system. The Titan SR8 can process slit widths as narrow as 25mm (less than one inch).
The Atlas CW800 film slitter for both plain and metallised film is also the company’s most successful secondary slitter. It uses the same technology as the larger Atlas primary film slitters with a maximum speed of 1000 m/min (3,280 ft/min.) and 1200mm (48 inches) unwind/rewind diameters. There are now over 100 Atlas CW800 slitters working with metallisers, CPP and BOPP film lines.
