Business Description: Manufacturer of Atlas & Titan Slitter Rewinders for Film, Labelstock, Laminates, Paper & Flexible Materials for the Global Converting Industry.
Products / Services / Brands: Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. (UK) was established in 1976 and is a world leading supplier and provider of solutions in slitting & rewinding technology and finished roll handling systems to the plastic film, labelstock and flexible materials industries. Its products are represented by two of the industry’s world leading brands, Atlas and Titan represented in the USA by Atlas Converting North America, Inc. in Charlotte, NC.
The Atlas and Titan brands have been at the forefront of slitting and rewinding technology for more than four decades. In 2014, the company celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Titan slitter rewinders. With more than 3,500 machine installations in over 70 countries, Atlas and Titan are recognised globally as market leaders in the production of primary and secondary slitter rewinders.
Atlas has over 250 installations worldwide exceeding 6m in width - the widest at 10m and the fastest at 1,500m/min. The latest generation CW Series of more compact slitting & rewinding solutions is available in web widths from 2.5 to 10.4 metres (98 – 410ins.). The new CW1040 & CW3600 Series film slitters are part of a new technology platform which delivers higher efficiency, more productivity, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels and more effective operator control systems. Features also include Bluetooth wireless rewind technology, automatic knife positioning and direct drive web path rollers. The CW 5400 Series film slitters (4 – 6m / 157 – 236ins) will be introduced later this year.
The Titan range of secondary slitter rewinders comprises solutions for flexible packaging materials, plastic film, labelstock, laminates & paper in widths up to 2250mm (88ins). The range includes the latest generation Titan SR9 Series slitter rewinders with a new technology platform in Dual Shaft (DS) and Dual Turret (DT) formats in widths of 1650mm (65ins) & 2250mm (88ins). The Titan SR9 Series features modular design flexibility with running speeds up to 1000 m/min. (3,300 ft/min.) and slit widths as narrow as 20mm. The Linear Tracking Slitter (LTS) section on the Titan SR9 Series slitters ensures the shortest and most consistent constant web length between the knives and rewind shafts for improved web control. This advancement provides the highest possible side wall quality of rewind reels and supports the reduction of potential waste.
The Titan ER610 compact slitter has been a great success for the company with sales of more than 150 machines worldwide. It is available in two widths - 53 and 65ins (1350 & 1650mm) and features a 10" touch screen control system. A pneumatically controlled braking system provides accurate web tension control and a digital edge-guide system controls lateral movement of the unwind reel to +/- 2in (50 mm). Slitting systems available include shear knives, rotary razor (burst) or razor slitting in air or groove. Optional features include an edge trim extraction system and shaftless unwind roll pick-up from floor.
The Titan ER610 slitter can process a wide range of flexible materials including plain, printed, coated or metallized film from 20 to 200 micron, a wide range of laminates and paper from 30 to 200 gsm. This sustainable solution features reduced power consumption, no hydraulics for oil-free, hygienic operation, un-lubricated compressed air for zero oil/air emissions and is a ‘one-piece’ design to enable rapid installation and commissioning.
