Martin Automatic announced at Labelexpo Europe that two European label converters have expanded their capabilities by incorporating the company’s equipment into their Gallus production lines. Berson SA, a French converter, invested in two MBSF (F for filmic capability) automatic non-stop unwinds, and an automatic non-stop LRD rewind for Gallus EM 410 and Gallus RCS 330 presses at the company’s plant at Cebazat.

At Permapack in Germany, a new 10-color Gallus RCS 330 was ordered with Martin Automatic MBSF butt splice and LRD transfer rewind units. Custom built to match the performance of the Gallus line, the Martin units will handle 40" (1,016mm) rolls at 500 fpm (150 m/min). The aim was not only to reduce waste of expensive material, but also to cut back on machine downtime. According to the Head of Permapack’s Packaging Division, Mark Lehmann: “One machine length of material can easily represent 8 percent of the entire roll, so any saving is valuable.”
