Atlas sees growing demand for service, upgrades as customers seek to enhance their capabilities
Atlas Converting Equipment has reported growing demand for its service and upgrade capability as customers look to achieve more with their existing machines.
The company’s product portfolio includes Atlas primary slitter rewinders and Titan secondary slitter inspection rewinders.
To augment their production capabilities, Atlas offers customers a number of upgrade options, including: a control desk upgrade, which reduces maintenance, and improves winding control and quality; differential quick shafts, offering better tension control, reduced turnaround time and increased productivity; slitting and knife systems to improve roll quality, productivity and reduce operator fatigue; reel handling systems that reduce changeover time, increase productivity and reduce manual handling; laser core alignment, providing improved roll rewind alignment and roll quality, and reducing downtime; and rewind shaft unloading, which increases productivity and reduces risk of injury.
To support such activities, Atlas has a rapidly growing Service and Upgrades team for customers who are looking to upgrade their existing Atlas and Titan machines. This has included the appointment of Tom Osbourne and Abhinandan Malaji, who have joined as service and commissioning engineers, respectively.
With the company preparing to have its expanding Service and Upgrades team a core part of its presence at ICE 2019, Barrie Homewood, sales and marketing director for Atlas and Titan products, commented: ‘We are seeing an increase in customers who are looking to achieve greater flexibility, efficiencies with shorter runs, faster change overs and ideally want to achieve this with their existing machines.’
ICE 2019 takes place March 12-14 in Munich, Germany. For more details on this and other industry events, see the L&L Events diary
