Martin Automatic Inc. recently shipped an automatic butt splicer and transfer rewinder to Pemara Labels Malaysia for use at its factory in Balakong, Selangor State. Ms. Ngooi Pei Ling, general manager for Pemara Labels Malaysia, placed the order at Labelexpo Europe in September 2011.
The equipment includes an MBSC automatic butt splicing unwind and STR automatic transfer rewinder. The equipment combo is the first splicer and rewinder to be installed at Pemara’s Malaysia location and will provide nonstop operation to a Gallus EM 340S press. The majority of printing jobs are opaque and clear-on-clear PS label stock.
In addition to making automatic roll changes in the splicing mode, the MBSC splicer also is equipped as a dual unwinder. This feature enables Pemara to unwind two rolls of liner and face stock simultaneously into the press with automatic tension control over both webs.
This marks the group’s fourth investment in Martin splicers and rewinders. With earlier installations on Gallus presses in the Jakarta, Indonesia; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and Melbourne, Australia, headquarters plants, Pemara now has placed Martin Automatic roll changing systems in every one of its label facilities.
