Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) will present the latest Atlas CW Series and Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinders for plastic film and flexible materials at Chinaplas 2015, to be held May 20-23 in Guangzhou, China.
The Atlas CW Series slitter rewinder range includes machine widths from 2.5m to 10.4 metres with speeds of up to 1500 m/min. The company has now sold over 80 of the new platform CW Series slitter rewinders for BOPP, BOPET and CPP films in various worldwide locations, including many in China. The range now includes the CW3600 Series (2.5 – 3.6m), CW5400 Series (4.2 – 5.4m) and CW1040 Series primary film slitters from 8.0 to 10.4m.
This latest Atlas technology features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning and direct drive web path rollers ensuring optimum web tension for films as thin as 6 micron and up to 125 micron. The new platform also delivers higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems. Atlas continues to be a global leader in the design and production of high performance slitter rewinders and this latest technology sets a new benchmark in the global film slitting business.
The Atlas CW1040 Series has been designed to cope with the increasing speed of film production lines and does not just rely on a sustainable, increased running speed to achieve this - the CW1040 also has faster acceleration and deceleration cycles. Compared to a conventional primary film slitter running at 1,500m/min. producing rewind lengths of 8,000m, the Atlas CW Series will have a faster rewind cycle, but at only 1,200m/min.
When running much longer rewind lengths at a speed of 1,500m/min., together with faster acceleration & deceleration cycles, the new CW Series far out-performs conventional primary film slitters.
Atlas also manufactures the Titan range of secondary slitter rewinders for flexible packaging materials, plastic film, labelstock, laminates & paper with more than 2,500 installations in over 70 countries. The latest Titan SR9 Series modular slitter rewinders provide unsurpassed levels of slitting productivity, design modularity and rewind reel quality. Features include reduced power consumption, faster set-up time and improved sustainability showing respect for the environment.
Atlas & Titan provide comprehensive customer support through a new service platform and global network of operations based in Europe, the USA, India, SE Asia and China. In China, these operations are co-ordinated through the wholly owned Atlas subsidiary A.C.E. (Shanghai) Trading Co. Ltd. in Shanghai which was incorporated in 2011.
