Atlas Converting Equipment (UK) will present its range of primary and secondary slitter-rewinders at the K Show in Düsseldorf, Germany from 19 to 26 October on Stand 3B91 in Hall 3. 2016 is looking to be another bumper year for Atlas Converting Equipment with orders significantly ahead of the previous year and with the scheduled delivery of three 10.5 metre primary slitter-rewinders in 2016.
Being one of the first companies to develop slitting and rewinding machines to handle unwind widths of over 5 metres Atlas quickly became the industry leader in primary slitting and rewinding. By continuing to push the boundaries of engineering and process control, modern Atlas slitter-rewinders can accommodate 10.6 metres wide unwind rolls and process them at a staggering speeds, up to 1,500 metres a minute (5,000 feet a minute).
With its brands of Atlas & Titan, Atlas Converting Equipment is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of primary and secondary slitter-rewinders for plastic films, labelstock, laminates and other flexible materials. The company has to date installed more than 2,600 secondary Titan and 1,000 Atlas primary slitter-rewinders worldwide, with over 250 film slitters exceeding 6 metres (236 inches) in width.
Titan secondary slitters comprise the small footprint ER610, the highly flexible SR800 and two models of the high productivity SR9 series, one a duplex slitter-rewinder, the other a duplex turret machine allowing operators to get the machine up and running again in typically 30 seconds from stop to start.
