Atlas Converting Equipment is pleased to announce the launch of the next-generation Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinder technology at the ICE Europe 2011 exhibition in Munich, Germany (8-10 November / hall B6, stand 291). The new Titan SR9-DT Dual Turret slitter rewinder provides unsurpassed levels of slitting productivity, design modularity and rewind reel quality. New features include reduced power consumption and enhancements in sustainability showing respect for the environment with a reduced carbon footprint.

Innovative engineering design has led to Atlas Converting Equipment obtaining and applying for six patents on the Titan SR9-DT model. These advanced designs have led to significant improvements in quality of slit reels, reduction of set-up time and increased productivity. As an example, the Linear Tracking Slitter (LTS) section ensures the shortest and a constant web length between the knives and the rewind shafts for improved web control giving the highest possible side wall quality of rewind reels.

The Titan SR9-DT is the fastest (1,000m/min) shafted secondary slitter rewinder available in the world for converters in the flexible packaging market sector. Coupled with the unique Turret Rewind® design providing an automatic cutting and taping of the web tails, the SR9-DT is set to smash all productivity records.

Live demonstrations of the new Titan SR9-DT rewinder at the three-day event include processing a 1,210mm wide, 30 micron, eight-colour flexo printed natural OPP film substrate and focusing on important improvements made by Titan in the design and engineering of dual-turret rewinding technology.

The Atlas range of solutions in wider width primary and secondary slitting and rewinding for film and label stock will also be presented at ICE Europe.

Following the company’s continued expansion, a new service platform for both the Atlas and Titan range of machines will be presented at the event, providing expanded global customer service and support operations. Together with the introduction of a wider range of service products, Atlas reconfirms its position as a global supplier providing complete customer satisfaction.
