Label Technology adds third Martin splicer

April 10, 2013

Label Technology, Merced, CA, USA, has installed a Martin Automatic butt splicer on a new MPS EXL660 flexible packaging press. The MBSF splicer matches the high productivity specifications of the 10-unit, 26-inch digital servo drive press, unwinding and splicing paper and unsupported films, including 48g PET, at speeds to 750 fpm.

David Bankson, president of Label Technology, says, “Martin butt splicers are an essential piece of equipment on our flexible packaging lines. They are extremely reliable, easy to operate and very robust. I have no doubt they will be delivering consistent performance for years to come.”

The latest installation brings to three the number of Martin Automatic splicers in Label Technology’s facility, with splicers running on Mark Andy and PCMC presses.
