“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.
