From 22-24 July, Laem System will stage an Open House event at its site in Casale Monferrato, Italy, to present the new TR4 series turret slitter rewinder.

Said to be extremely robust, this heavy duty and "high performing" slitter has been designed to work at high speeds 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. This is achieved thanks to the fully automatic set-up of the machine and the extremely short web path from the slitting to the rewinding group, where a trolley moves back while the rewinding diameter increases.

In this way the contact of the lay-on rollers with the finished reels is said to ensure perfect tensions and rewind quality.

Visitors to the open house will be able see first hand a complete simulation of a finishing production department "designed to fulfil the requests of an ever demanding market".

Two models of the TR4 will demonstrate several integrated options: fully automatic positioning of the knives and counter knives; core positioning assisted by motorised laser; automatic closure of the finished reels; and gluing of new cores and automatic extraction of the reels on a fully automatic unloader.

In partnership with Eutro Log, a complete automated system for handling the finished rolls coming from the two slitters will be shown. With a Kuka robot and conveyor belts, this system can control the finished reels, automatically place a barcode on them (inside the cores and outside the reels), package the reels in individual in PE film bags and then palletise all finished reels. A shuttle system retrieves the finished pallet and supplies a new empty pallet ready for the next batch.

Quality is improved (reels are never touched), bottle necks are avoided, and productivity is increased, the companies state.
