CTC has introduced its Model S-900AB-ACV automatic butt splicer. It is suitable for splicing a variety of materials including tag, label, board, filmstocks, and other thick or double ply materials. The heavy-duty cantilevered unwind design features integral roll lifting and can hold two full 40" diameter rolls, allowing new roll prep at any time in the splice sequence. The horizontal web accumulator is positioned on top of the splicer, allowing for a smaller footprint than any existing splicer that accommodates rolls this size. Unit features include vector-driven unwind spindles as standard, with servo drives optional.
