Titan Slitter Added at TC Transcontinental Packaging

VAUGHAN, ON, CANADA | TC Transcontinental Packaging features operations in print, flexible packaging, publishing, and digital media and employs more than 8,000 employees. As part of an expansion plan to meet increased demand for its flexible packaging solutions, a new SR800 slitter/rewinder from Titan was added to the existing fleet of slitter/rewinders operating within TC Transcontinental Packaging, a division of TC Transcontinental. 

According to TC, the Titan SR800 was selected over other brands due to the company’s experience with the reliability and operational performance of Titan slitter/rewinders, plus the compatibility of accessories and the ability to consolidate the new machine into the existing Titan maintenance scheduling.

Titan says the biggest challenge and risk to the final quality of the rewound package is in controlling the tension of the web. Thus the Titan SR800 features the company’s “Differential Winding System” and “S” wrap roller drive to ensure constant rewind tension.

Jeff Lasley, general manager for TC Transcontinental Packaging, says, “The reliability and performance of our existing Titan fleet of slitter rewinders plus the service and support we get from Atlas Converting made the choice of the Titan SR800 easy for us. Our operators are already familiar with the operation of Titan machines and the new machine can be integrated into our existing maintenance schedule. This allows us to get the SR800 up to operational production in the shortest time in order to meet our high expectations."

Rod Balke, maintenance team leader for TC Transcontinental Packaging, says, “Our history with Atlas Titan slitters has been extremely positive. The SR800 is a quality product delivering excellent web control and final roll profile. We have Titan slitters that have been in operation for 20 years. Atlas has supported those products and continues to do so today.”
