ITW Labels has installed its third Martin Automatic MBS butt splicer at its factory in Missouri and expects a fourth to go into service during the summer.
ITW general manager Kevin Gold says the investment is aimed at increasing productivity on its label presses. “We already had several turret rewinders so we knew the advantages of automatic roll changing at the end of the press. And we selected a matrix removal system to eliminate press stoppages at the matrix wind-up. The butt splicer was the remaining piece to give us a completely non-stop printing and die cutting process.”
The MBS system includes an inertia compensated festoon, a patented splice unit to make non overlapping butt splices and two cantilevered unwind positions with Martin’s lift and load roll loading system.
