Atlas 17The Atlas CW Series
Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. is displaying ‘next generation’ Atlas CW Series and Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinder technology for film and flexible materials at K 2013.
The Bedford, UK-based company, launched its 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 at speeds of up to 1,500m/min.
Major benefits of the new technology area said to include higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems.
The new Atlas CW1040 Series has been designed to cope with the increasing speed of film production lines and along with a sustainable, increased running speed the CW Series also reportedly has faster acceleration and deceleration cycles. Compared to a conventional primary film slitter running at 1,500m/min. producing rewind lengths of 8,000m, Atlas says the CW Series will have a faster rewind cycle, but at only 1,200m/min.
Atlas says it has now sold over 40 of the new CW Series slitter rewinders in widths from 2,500mm to 10,400mm for BOPP, BOPET and CPP films.
The new generation Titan SR9 Series secondary slitter rewinders are also on display at K 2013 and Atlas says they 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.
