US Tape & Label has installed a Prati Saturn TE450 slitter rewinder to enhance its production efficiency.
Based on the recently developed open-platform technology called Futura, the Saturn range of slitter rewinders run at high speeds and offer adaptability to future needs. Thanks to the Futura technology, the Saturn TE450 is also equipped to comply with Industry 4.0 standards and can be connected to customer’s MIS systems to exploit data and improve production efficiency.
With its new-generation motion technology and a self-sharpening slitting knife system, the Saturn handles a wide range of PS label materials on paper and film liners including the UPM PP30 and AD PET 23µm liners, booklet, tube laminate, aluminum foil, Tyvek, cardboard, and multi-laminates.
Among the features of the Saturn TE450 machine delivered to US Tape & Label is the Fastcut system, which reduces set-up times and ensures accuracy in knife and counter-knife positioning.
