US manufacturer CTC International’s new Model S-900AB-ACV automatic butt splicer is suitable for splicing a variety of materials including tag, label, board, film stocks, and other thick or double-ply materials. The machine’s heavy duty cantilevered unwind design allows rolls as large as 48 inch diameter to be accommodated easily, it is claimed.
The web accumulator is a separate unit, and can be placed at the left or right side of the splicer, allowing the machine to work in either direction with a simple diversion roller change. Automatic ‘gapless’ butt splicing of the web with two pieces of tape (one applied to each side) for maximum security is standard. Both splice tapes are applied to the web at the same point in the process, reducing chances of a missed splice. The machine can programmed to make a one-sided splice if desired, with the tape always on the same side, without turreting the unwind rolls.
The splicer is available to accommodate a variety of roll sizes, line speeds and other process requirements, including CE compliance and in-register splicing. Other options include automatic web guiding and driven unwind Sspindles for low tension applications.
