Martin Automatic will showcase MBS automatic splicer and the LRD automatic transfer rewinder at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2017. The LRD will be fitted with optional features, some of which will be seen for the first time at Labelexpo.
The LRD is a two-spindle transfer rewinder that winds, changes and automatically offloads rolls, without any need for carts or additional roll handling equipment. The unit at the Labelexpo show is loaded with features, including a web guide and slitter package for in-line slitting; a portability package for easy relocation between press lines; and an articulating arm to offload rolls through the front of the LRD if product rolls require special handling. The LRD rewinder accommodates 800mm diameter rolls in the standard model, with smaller and larger diameter models available.
The MBS standard features allow for other, more exotic materials as demands for newer and different webs drive the industry for greater variety of labelling solutions. The machine that will on show at Labelexpo will feature Martin’s laser assist tape alignment system for easy splice preparation.
The Martin Automatic MBS and LRD machines at Labelexpo Europe have been sold to Desmedt Labels and will be delivered after the exhibition. This is a repeat order for the Belgium label company. Martin will be located on Stand 7A35.
