A major North American film manufacturer has ordered a 6.2m wide primary film slitter from UK based Ashe Converting Equipment. The machine is designed for fully automatic handling of 8,000kg parent rolls direct from an extrusion line. The parent roll storage system is fully robotic and includes slitter machine loading and empty core return.
With fully automatic rotary shear knife setting of 15 knives and equipped with 20 rewind arms, the Ashe machine will slit and rewind rolls from 250-1,600mm wide and 1,000mm in diameter. Finished rolls will have wrapping facilities and off-load conveyors to weighing stations, and reel handling for palletizing. All idler rolls are driven and are of lightweight carbon fibre design.
The machine will also be equipped with Ashe’s high speed traversing trim winders for 750mm wide and 750mm diameter rolls with easy unloading and low winding tension.
