Atlas to Launch Inspection Rewinders

BEDFORD, UK | Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) will be launching a range of inspection rewinder machines to complement the Titan range of slitter/rewinders at ICE Europe in Munich, Germany, from March 21–24. 

The Titan IR60 inspection machine

Company says the Models IR60, IR135, IR165, and RR165 inspection machines are designed to meet the market requirements for different web widths and complement the range of Titan slitter/rewinder machines offering reliability, quality, and productivity. The Titan series of inspection machines will unwind, inspect, and rewind material from widths of 60–165 cm (24–65 in.) to improve the quality of the mother rolls that go into the slitter/rewinder, eliminating the need to stop the slitter and increasing the slitting efficiency and slit quality.

Identifying defects in the web can be done either by a fully automatic 100% inspection system, manually using stroboscopic systems, or by entering multiple stop signals based upon the flag location. The machines are high-speed, fully reversible, and with the inclusion of splice table, the operator can remove all defects, reportedly reducing waste and time.

Barrie Homewood, sales director for Titan products, says, “These inspection machines complement our range of Titan slitter/rewinders and deliver enhanced slitter productivity and quality for our customers.” He also states that, “real productivity improvements are seen when large-diameter ‘clean rolls’ are supplied to the slitter rewinder.”

The IR135 & IR165 compact inspection machines can also be used to splice together smaller mother roll diameters and deliver a larger mother roll, increasing efficiencies of the slitter. In addition to above features the RR165 with its overhead web path can incorporate additional “valued added” processes such as web laser perforation/scoring and other web treatments.

Titan Inspection machines can process laminates, film, paper, metallized film, and aluminum foil.
