Butler to Showcase Automatic Film Splicing Solutions at PACK EXPO
Butler Automatic will showcase its SP1 and SP3HSL automatic film splicers at PACK EXPO 2017 from September 25-27, 2017 (Booth 3916), at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Representatives will be on hand to demonstrate how Butler equipment improves OEE – defined by equipment availability, performance and quality. Equipment availability is improved by eliminating roll change downtime caused by manual film roll changes. Performance improvements come through Butler splicers’ consistent web infeed, resulting in fewer stops and starts. Butler splicers’ precise web control improves quality by providing filling and sealing consistency.
With a simple mechanical design and high-quality manufacture, the SP1 promises long-term, trouble-free automatic splicing performance. The device senses the diameter of the expiring roll of film and automatically splices the end of each expiring roll onto the new roll. It is capable of running at speeds of up to 600 feet per minute (fpm).
Butler’s SP3HSL automatic shrink sleeve splicer increases line efficiency by 9 percent or more in certain applications. Capable of running at speeds of up to 600 fpm, the SP3HSL is ideally suited for increasing production time in consumer packaged goods and pharmaceutical applications utilizing shrink sleeve packaging.
