Heukaufer Folien, German packaging films producer, has ordered Titan ER610 compact slitter rewinder from Atlas converting equipment that it plans to set up on a new production floor by August.
Titan ER610 slitter is meant for 1350mm wide materials, running at a maximum speed of 450/min, and rewind diameters of around 610mm, with 35mm minimum slit width that could be equipped with a static control system, laser safety scanners and extraction system.
The slitter can process a wide range of plain, printed and coated films ranging 20 to 200 micron.
Heukaufer Folien managing director Kurt Barth said they decided some time back to replace the current slitter rewinder.
A digital edge-guide system controls lateral movement of the reel while a pneumatic braking system has a provision for web tension control.
It is environmentally friendly with zero emissions and a compact design, claimed the firm.
