MLS Automatic Splicer
The Martin MLS Automatic Splicer is a compact unit for continuous full-speed unwinding of rolls. Its space-saving design makes it ideal as an automatic splicer for mid-press laminating or for introducing additional webs into a non-stop process.
Combined with other Martin Automatic splicing and rewinding solutions, the MLS offers printers and converters the opportunity for fully continuous production.
- Space-saving design. The MLS can be fitted above the running web of many narrow web presses, without adding length to the line. (Consult your Martin representative for specific process configurations.)
- Pull-out spindles and splice unit. Each unwind position includes a spindle and half of the splice unit. The operator loads rolls and prepares splices from an ergonomic location in the aisle, then returns the spindle and splice unit to its running position.
- Automatic splice initiation. The MLS monitors the diameter of the running roll and automatically makes a roll change at a pre-set diameter.
- Inertia compensated tension control. The festoon features Martinís inertia compensation technology for consistent, accurate tensioning of the web as it enters the process.
Simple splice preparation and few operator controls are typical of Martinís engineering philosophy. The proven Martin festoon and PLC-based control system guarantee a high level of splicing reliability with minimal maintenance.
|Maximum Splicing Speed||to 500 FPM||to 152 MPM|
