Martin Automatic introduces new LRD rewinder

March 5, 2013

The latest LRD rewinder now accommodates 31.5 inches diameter rolls, with larger diameter models available.

Among its roll change automation equipment for the label, flexible packaging and folding carton markets, Martin Automatic Inc. offers several lines of automatic transfer rewinders for continuous production.

Martin introduced the newest model in the LRD line of rewinders for narrow- and mid-width presses. The LRD is used in a variety of applications, including paper, film, labelstock, light paperboard and tube laminates. 
  • The latest LRD rewinder now accommodates 800 mm (31.5 in) diameter rolls in the standard model, with larger diameter models available.
  • Operator control is via a touch screen display. In addition to high visibility, expanded diagnostics and easier operation, the LRD includes recipe functions so operators can quickly and easily store and recall the winding parameters of repeat jobs.
  • The optional in-line slitter package has been enhanced to offer lateral adjustment of the slitter and anvil roller assembly for quicker set-up, fine-tuning and change-over between jobs.
  • The LRD offloads finished rolls automatically via one of several standard doffing ramp designs for full-width, multiple-ribbon or loosely-wound rolls. If product rolls are small or require special handling, an optional articulating arm automatically delivers finished rolls through the front of the unit for easy removal.
“As the industry leader in roll-change and web-handling automation, we’re known for designing simplicity, reliability and the most appropriate advanced technology into our equipment,” says Gavin Rittmeyer, vice president of sales and marketing. “The newest LRD rewinder model exemplifies how Martin Automatic continues to develop and enhance products that give converters and printers the greatest versatility and value for their investment.”
