CTC Splicer Is Semi-Automatic

WEST CALDWELL, NJ | CTC International reports the introduction of the Model 800-PB-VF-36 heavy-duty compact semi-automatic splicer engineered to operate in-line with converting processes for rolls to 36 in. diameter and weighing to 900 lbs. 

The splicer loads rolls directly from the floor without requiring any additional material handling equipment, by using a turreting roll lifting concept.

A built-in web festoon allows the operator to load rolls and make manual splices while the process is running, providing nonstop production. The included splice table has a cutting slot for the operator to trim the expired and new webs, as well as an integral tape dispenser.

The machine is engineered so that just one operator can do all roll loading and splice prep, and machine can be application-engineered for a wide range of roll sizes, web tensions, and web dynamics. A CE-compliant version is also available.

Company says standard features include the following:

  • Precise tension control via festoon feedback to pneumatic braking system
  • Unitized construction—all parts mounted on a solid base for easy moving
  • Turret design for easy roll lifting directly from the floor Splice table pivots up for roll loading and down for access to the splice prep
  • Industry-standard PLC Control
  • Convenient tape dispenser integrated into splice table
  • Splice prep signal tells operator when to load new roll
  • Web break detector.
