CTC International’s new Model S-900AB-ACV automatic butt splicer is suitable for splicing a variety of materials including tag, label, board, film stocks, and other thick or double ply materials. CTC says it will accommodate a variety of web widths, line speeds and other process requirements.
The machine’s heavy duty cantilevered unwind design features integral roll lifting and can hold two full 40 inch diameter rolls, allowing new roll preparation at any time in the splice sequence. The horizontal web accumulator is positioned on top of the splicer, which is said to allow for a smaller footprint than any existing splicer that accommodates rolls this size.
The ne unit features vector driven unwind spindles as standard, with servodrives optional. Driving the unwind spindles offers several benefits including keeping the machine footprint small, the ability to unwind very delicate materials, and no brakes to wear and need replacement.
Automatic ‘gapless’ butt splicing with two pieces of tape for maximum security is standard. Both splice tapes are applied to the web when stopped, reducing chances of a missed splice. The machine can also be operated to make a one-sided splice, with the tape always on the same side, without turreting the unwind rolls.
