ROCKFORD, IL | Martin Automatic announces the installation of a new splicer and rewinder combo on a narrow web label press at Flexographic Trade Services, Fort Mill, SC. The new Martin Automatic MBSC butt splicer will be combined with an STR turret rewinder to provide non-stop roll changing for FTS’s new Mark Andy P5 Performance series press.
Matching the press speed of up to 500 FPM, the new MBSC/STR combo is a practical and affordable upgrade that significantly boosts productivity and reduces materials waste for more profitable operations.
The MBSC shares many features and capabilities with Martin’s popular MBS splicer, including the same patented rolling-shear splice unit, lift-and-load roll loading from the aisle, automatic roll sidelay to insure that webs are aligned at the splice, and inertia-compensated festoon. Rittmeyer notes that the MBSC has been specifically designed for narrower web-widths up to 13-in. and smaller roll diameters up to 31.5-in. making the MBSC / STR combo an ideal fit for the majority of label presses in use today, including the P5 press at FTS.
The Martin splicer and rewinder will be featured at the FTS open house event the week of August 9th, 2010.
