The company will also present the latest developments in its range of Atlas slitter rewinders covering web widths from 2.5 to 10.4 metres. Atlas & Titan provide solutions for slitting & rewinding a wide range of flexible materials including plain, printed and coated plastic films, flexible packaging, laminates, label materials and paper. In 2014, Titan celebrated its 50th Anniversary as a global leader in slitter rewinder technology.

The new generation Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinders provide unsurpassed levels of slitting productivity, design modularity and rewind reel quality in machine widths of 1650 & 2250mm for high volume production printers and converters. New features include reduced power consumption, faster set-up time and improved sustainability showing respect for the environment. A unique Linear Tracking Slitter section (LTS) ensures a short and constant web length between the knives and rewind shafts to deliver the highest quality rewind reels at speeds of up to 1,000m/min.

The more compact Titan ER610 duplex slitter is available in two widths of 1350 & 1650mm with running speeds up to 450m/min. (option for 550m/min.) and has been particularly successful with many sales during 2014 bringing the total number now in operation worldwide to more than 150 machines.

In addition to the Atlas CW3600 & CW1040 Series slitter rewinders launched in 2012, the company has also recently introduced the CW5400 Series available in widths from 3.6 to 5.4 metres.

The complete CW Series of more compact film slitting solutions now covers machine widths from 2.5m to 10.4m at speeds of up to 1,500m/min. Major benefits of the new Atlas CW Series technology platform include higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective, operator-friendly control systems.

The Atlas CW1040 Series has been designed to cope with the increasing speed of film production lines with faster acceleration and deceleration cycles. Compared to a conventional primary film slitter running at 1,500m/min. producing rewind lengths of 8,000m, the Atlas CW Series has a faster rewind cycle, but at only 1,200m/min.

This latest Atlas technology features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning and direct drive web path rollers ensuring optimum web tension for films as thin as 6 micron and up to 125 micron. Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated in to the machines to reduce the space required for installation with under-floor service channels no longer required. More than 60 of the new Atlas CW Series film slitters have now been sold to many film producers across the world.

Atlas & Titan continue to be a global leaders in the design and production of high performance slitter rewinders and these latest technologies set a new benchmark in the slitting & rewinding of plastic films & flexible packaging materials. Comprehensive customer support is provided through an expanded service platform and a global network of operations based in Europe, North America, Mexico, India, SE Asia and China.
