CTC unveils compact Clamshell splicer

December 1, 2011

The smaller version is 36” long and can accommodate two 14” diameter rolls.

CTC International has introduced a smaller version of its CS1224 “Clamshell” Splicer, engineered for non-stop packaging and converting applications. The smaller version is designated the CS1214 Splicer, and is only 36” long, allowing it to fit into compact areas. Despite its small size, it can accommodate two 14” diameter rolls.
The splicer features CTC’s Clamshell Splicer mechanism, which opens 90 degrees into a horizontal plane, providing a flat work table on which to easier prep the splice. The two unwind shafts for the supply rolls are located at the bottom of the machine close to the floor, minimizing material handling during roll loading.
The Splicer also features CTC’s “Splice at Any Speed” System, which guarantees that a change in line speed during the splice will not affect the registration of preprinted materials.
The Splicer is equipped standard with an Allen Bradley Microligix PLC, and other brands are available to suit customer needs.
Options include splice in register, ethernet interface, heat seal splicing, wash down or wipe down construction, and CE, UL or CSA compliance. The machine is customizable for a variety of roll and core sizes and varying line speeds.
