Converting manufacturer Atlas Converting Equipment will officially launch its new CW technology platform for Atlas primary and secondary slitter rewinders for film and flexible materials at the Chinaplas show in Shanghai, China from April 18-21.
Atlas says the new CW technology platform introduces the next generation of more compact film slitting solutions from Atlas in web widths from 2.5 to 10.4 metres and delivers higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems, according to Atlas.
It features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning, direct drive web path rollers and running speeds of up to 1500 m/min with more precise web tension control. Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated in to the machine to reduce the space required for installation with under floor service trenches also no longer required.
Atlas Converting Equipment, one of the world's largest manufacturers of primary and secondary slitter rewinders for plastic films, label stock, laminates and other flexible materials, had installed more than 1,000 machines worldwide and over 250 film slitters exceeding six metres in width.
