US-based McCracken Bag and Label Co. has invested in a ZC Series cantilever butt splicer, adding to its fleet of almost a dozen KTI machines to reduce waste and increase productivity further.
The new equipment joins almost a dozen KTI machines at the converter’s production facility in Chicago, including an older ZC Series model.
The butt splicer’s two cantilevered roll positions feed a continuous supply of material into the press. The integrated storage festoon eliminates the need to stop for changing rolls saving time and material waste. Machine customization allows for running various materials, including paper, label stock, film, tag, and other specialty substrates.
‘My relationship with Steve Reynolds (regional account manager) and the support he and KTI have provided over the years, as well as the reliability of the equipment, is the driving force behind continuing to purchase from KTI. I look forward to continuing the relationship for many years to come,’ commented Chris Buday, vice president of business development at McCracken Bag and Label Co.
‘We take pride in our after-market support and continuing relationships after the sale. Steve Reynolds has extensive experience with this due to his previous role as service manager for KTI,’ added Derek Wheeler, VP of sales for Quantum Design. ‘We strive to build long-lasting relationships with customers, and our ongoing business with McCracken is a testament to our goals of offering cost-effective solutions with the ongoing support needed to create the highest level of customer satisfaction.’
