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
“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

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
