Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) is pleased to confirm that it sold the Titan ER610 compact slitter from the booth at the ICE USA exhibition (April 6-8) in Orlando, Fla., to Plasticos Especializados de Monterrey S.A. de C.V. (Plemsa) of Mexico. The 1650 mm (65-inch) wide slitter was demonstrated during the show.

The ER610 is a twin-shaft cantilever slitter and a more sustainable slitting/rewinding solution. It has reduced power but all electric, oil-free operation without hydraulics, a CCD edge-guide camera for reducing waste, a running speed of 450 m/min (1500 ft/min) and an option for slit widths as narrow as 35 mm (1.37-inch). With a simple design enabling quick and easy installation, the ER610 has extended the Titan slitter portfolio by meeting the needs of converters to process lower volumes and shorter runs of flexible packaging materials.

“We have been very satisfied with the performance of the first Titan ER610 slitter which we installed at the beginning of last year,” explains Armando Vazquez Castillo, director of the Plemsa Plastics Division. “We have other older Titan SR Series slitters, which have been running well for the last 10–15 years, so we knew that reliability of the new Titan machine would not be an issue. Our business has expanded rapidly in the last few years and we needed additional high performance slitting capacity in to keep up with increased demand,” he confirms. “So it made complete sense to buy our second ER610 slitter from the ICE USA show, as it was already in The Plemsa Group was established in 1957 and produces a wide range of flexible packaging materials mainly for food applications with facilities for blown film extrusion and co-extrusion, flexo printing, lamination, slitting and bag production.

The Plemsa Group supplies flexible packaging materials throughout and since 1988 has developed substantial sales of its products to customers in the United States, Central and The Titan ER610 slitter has been a great success with approximately 100 machines now installed worldwide. It is available in 2 web widths – 1350 mm and 1650 mm (53 inches and 65 inches) – with a maximum rewind diameter of 610 mm (24 inches). It also features a 10-inch touch screen control system and an integral edge-trim extraction system.

The pneumatically-controlled braking system provides accurate web tension control and a digital edge-guide system controls lateral movement of the unwind reel to +/- 50 mm (2 inches). Slitting systems available include shear knives, rotary razor (burst) or razor slitting in air or groove. Optional features on the Plemsa machine include a static electricity control system, laser (line) core positioning, EU safety guarding, laser safety scanners and shaftless unwind roll pick-up from floor.
