Atlas Converting Equipment launched a new version of its Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinder at the ICE Europe 2011 exhibition in Munich. The new Titan SR9-DT Dual Turret slitter rewinder includes new features such as reduced power consumption and enhancements in sustainability with a reduced carbon footprint.
Atlas obtained six patents on the Titan SR9-DT model. These advanced designs have led to significant improvements in quality of slit reels, reduction of set-up time and increased productivity. As an example, the Linear Tracking Slitter (LTS) section ensures the shortest and a constant web length between the knives and the rewind shafts for improved web control giving the highest possible side wall quality of rewind reels.
Running at 1000m/min, the Titan SR9-DT is said by Atlas to be the fastest shafted secondary slitter rewinder available for converters in the flexible packaging market. The system also features the company’s own Turret Rewind design, which provides an automatic cutting and taping of the web tails.
Live demonstrations of the new Titan SR9-DT rewinder at the three-day event included processing a 1210mm wide, 30 micron, 8-color flexo printed Natural OPP film substrate.
At the event, the company also announced a new customer service and support program.
