Over 150 users and prospective customers of AB Graphic International label converting equipment recently attended the company’s first Open House in its new facility in Bridlington, UK. A star turn during the two-day event was the new Omega FSR slitter rewinder for processing large rolls of unsupported film materials.
AB sales director Tony Bell states: “We have seen a significant trend in the narrow web roll to roll press industry towards servo drive machinery capable of handling a wide range of unsupported film materials. Obviously, having purchased such equipment there is a requirement for an inspection slitter rewinder to handle the same product range. Our response was to design a machine specifically to handle the difficult, thin, unsupported materials but also capable of operating with normal pressure sensitive labelstock. The Omega FSR is our solution for a changing market.”
The Omega FSR includes a driven unwind station, robust slitter/knife shaft, multiple slitting options, dual rewind with lay-on rollers and an “extremely versatile” closed loop/taper tension system.
Also previewed during the open house event was the new Flytec 100 per cent inspection system that can be supplied with all the Omega machines or as a retrofit to any of the more popular inspection slitter rewinders.
