The Martin MBS

(ROCKFORD, IL) – Martin Automatic Inc will be presenting the MDR (magnetic driven roller) system, an advanced solution for handling light webs at lower tension levels and higher operating speeds at DRUPA. The new MDR technology can be applied to both web transport systems and to Martin’s line of high-performance unwinds. See a high-speed demonstration of Martin's MDR technology running a lightweight nonwoven web at DRUPA in Dusseldorf Germany. Visit booth D46 in hall three.

Martin will also be showing an MBS butt splicer at their booth. This splicer is consistently one of the company's highest demand products. The MBS is the reliable standard for non-stop splicing in narrow and mid-web processes. It is a versatile splicer, handling substrates from unsupported film to paperboard.

At the Labelmen booth, (Hall 10, booth A47) the compact STS automatic butt splicing unwind will be running in conjunction with the STR automatic turret rewind. A press or process equipped with the STS and STR will not need to slow down or stop for roll changes. The STS and STR will be running pressure sensitive labels.
