Martin Automatic TMSL splicer unwinds level-wound (spooled) or pancake rolls offering overlap or butt splices in taped or tapeless designs

The web converting and manufacturing industries are continually trending towards higher  speeds with lower basis weight materials. Martin Automatic developed new web transport technologies to address these challenges. AirnertiaTM is Martin’s patented roller technology that uses a near frictionless air bearing system to minimize roller inertia. Martin’s MDR or Magnetic Driven Roller technology is used in web transport rollers to reduce or eliminate the effects of roller mass, bearing friction, speed changes, and entrained (boundary layer) air. These technologies can enable higher process speed, lower web tension and reduced equipment size. Hands-on demonstrations of these systems at drupa 2016 will highlight Martin’s breadth of applied engineering expertise across many web-fed industries.

Martin will display (Hall 3 Stand D53) the TMSL automatic splicer at drupa. This free-standing system includes two roll unwind positions, splice unit and festoon (accumulator) for continuous feed of narrow web materials such as film, non-woven and foam. Exemplifying the flexibility of Martin’s platform approach to roll changing, the TMSL can unwind level-wound (spooled) or pancake rolls and make overlap or butt splices in taped or tapeless designs.

Some processes require, or benefit from, splices made with hot melt adhesive. Martin’s new proprietary hot melt glue feed system on display automatically dispenses adhesive and refills the applicator reservoir with precisely measured glue pellets. Designed for splicing fiberglass mat in roofing manufacturing, it can be incorporated into new Martin MTL automatic splicers and is a time- and money-saving retrofit providing greater uptime and lower cost of ownership than current industry standard hot melt dispensing methods. Martin is currently pursuing other liquid adhesive systems for splicing beyond the roofing industry.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
