Major benefits of the new technology include greater efficiency

Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) will present its ‘next generation’ Atlas CW Series and Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinder technology for film and flexible materials at the K’2013 exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 16th – 23rd October on Stand 3-B91 in Hall 3.

The company launched its new Atlas CW3600 and CW1040 Series slitting and rewinding technology platform during 2012 and has also recently introduced the CW5000 Series, available in widths from 3,600 to 5,400mm.

The complete CW Series of more compact film slitting solutions now covers machine widths from 2,500mm to 10,400mm (98 – 410 ins.) at speeds of up to 1,500m/min. (4,920ft./min.).

Major benefits of the new technology include greater efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems.

The Atlas CW1040 Series has been designed to cope with the increasing speed of film production lines and does not just rely on a sustainable, increased running speed to achieve this – the CW Series also has faster acceleration and deceleration cycles.

Compared to a conventional primary film slitter running at 1,500m/min. producing rewind lengths of 8,000m, the Atlas CW Series will have a faster rewind cycle, but at only 1,200m/min.

When running much longer rewind lengths at a speed of 1,500m/min., together with faster acceleration and deceleration cycles, the new CW Series far out-performs conventional primary film slitters.

Atlas has now sold more than 40 of the new CW Series slitter rewinders in widths from 2,500mm to 10,400mm for BOPP, BOPET and CPP films. This latest Atlas technology features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning and direct drive web path rollers, ensuring optimum web tension for films as thin as six micron and up to 125 micron.

Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated in to the machines to reduce the space required for installation with ‘under floor’ service trenches no longer required.

The new generation Titan SR9 Series secondary slitter rewinders will also be presented at K’2013 and provide unsurpassed levels of slitting productivity, design modularity and rewind reel quality. New features include reduced power consumption, faster set-up time and improved sustainability, showing respect for the environment.

Atlas continues to be a global leader in the design and production of high performance slitter rewinders and these latest technologies set a new global benchmark in the slitting and rewinding of plastic films and flexible packaging materials.

Atlas & Titan provides comprehensive customer support through a new service platform and a global network of operations based in Europe, the US, India, SE Asia and China.
