Atlas launches new CW technology platform in film slitting & rewinding at Chinaplas 2012

cw3600 Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) is pleased to confirm that it will officially launch its new CW technology platform for ATLAS primary & secondary slitter rewinders for film & flexible materials at Chinaplas 2012 in Shanghai, China from 18th - 21st April, on stand E1-T51 in Hall E1.

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 (98 - 410 ins.) and delivers higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems.

This latest Atlas technology also features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning, direct drive web path rollers and running speeds of up to 1,500 m/min. (4,920 ft./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 Ltd. is one of the world's largest manufacturers of primary and secondary slitter rewinders for plastic films, labelstock, laminates and other flexible materials. The company has installed more than 1,000 machines worldwide and over 250 film slitters exceeding 6 metres (236 ins) in width. Atlas can also provide fully automated and integrated roll handling systems to meet specific production requirements.

Atlas also manufactures the TITAN range of secondary slitter rewinders for flexible packaging materials, plastic film, labelstock, laminates & paper and fully automated, integrated roll handling systems. Titan now has more than 2,500 installations in over 80 countries.

The next generation of Titan SR9 Series modular slitter rewinders was launched at the end of last year with the new Titan SR9-DT (Dual Turret) rewinder providing 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.

Advanced engineering design has led to significant improvements in quality of slit reels, reduction of set-up time and increased productivity. 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 at speeds of up to 1,000 m/min (3,300 ft./min.). With the unique Turret Rewind© design providing an automatic cutting and taping of the web tails, the Titan SR9-DT is set to smash all productivity records.

Atlas & Titan provide comprehensive service & support through a global network of customer service & support operations. For China, these operations are co-ordinated through the Atlas owned subsidiary A.C.E. (Shanghai) Trading Co. Ltd. in Shanghai which was incorporated in 2011.
