BEDFORD, UK | Atlas Converting Equipment won the C2 European Converting Innovation Award for 2013 at the recent ICE Europe exhibition in Munich, Germany, for the advanced design and technology of its next-generation Titan SR9 Series
slitter/rewinders. The Award was presented to Alan I. Johnson, managing director of the company and Barrie K. Homewood, sales and marketing director for the Titan product range.
From a list of almost 50 applications for the Awards, the Titan SR9 Series was the exclusive winner in the slitting/rewinding category.
The company says the development of the Titan SR9 Series focused on achieving significant reductions in machine downtime for printers and converters, with lower operator intervention and reduction of costly waste materials, adding up to gains in productivity. Engineering design has led to the application for three patents (one granted, two in process) on the Series and reportedly has led to significant improvements in the quality of slit rolls and significant reductions in set-up procedures.
To maintain focus on its sustainability objectives, the company says the Titan SR9 Series has many features for achieving reductions in the cost of energy and of waste materials. Elimination of all hydraulics is said to provide a cleaner environment, and the use of
high-efficiency motors and regenerative braking allows a considerable reduction in
energy consumption and makes the SR9 Series the most efficient slitting/rewinding solution in the Titan range, company reports.
