New Martin MBSC/STR combo aimed at narrow web market

May 24, 2010

The splicer/rewind unit is designed for web widths up to 13” and smaller roll diameters up to 31.5”.

Martin Automatic, Rockford, IL, USA, has introduced the MBSC splicer combined with an STR rewind, which provides roll automation for label presses with webs up to 13”. Running at speeds up to 500 fpm, the MBSC/STR combo is aimed at boosting productivity and reducing material waste. The MBSC/STR combo can be shipped within six weeks of ordering.

“The new MBSC/STR, as a combo package, costs around $100,000, and that puts roll automation within reach of most narrow web label printers,” says Gavin Rittmeyer, Martin’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The MBSC is not a cheaper version of our high-performance MBS splicer. The MBSC and the MBS share the same operator and time savings convenience features; however, the MBSC has been specifically designed for narrower web-widths up to 13” (330mm) and smaller roll diameters up to 31.5” (800mm). That means the MBSC/STR combo is a great fit for the majority of label presses in use today.”

Based upon the MBS splicer, the MBSC has the same patented rolling-shear splice unit, lift-and-load roll loading from the aisle, automatic roll sidelay for splice alignment and inertia-compensated festoon. Also like the MBS, the MBSC will splice automatically on manual push-button initiation; on operator-adjustable, automatic roll diameter calculation; or by tail-grabber initiation as the web separates from the core for minimum waste/maximum material usage.
