Atlas Converting Equipment will present its range of primary and secondary slitter rewinders at the K Show in Düsseldorf, Germany from October 19–26 on Stand 3B91 in Hall 3.

2016 is looking to be another bumper year for the company, with orders significantly ahead of the previous year and with the scheduled delivery of three 10.5m primary slitter rewinders in 2016.

Established in 1976, the Atlas Converting brand was the pioneer of the slitting and rewinding by being one of the first companies to develop slitting and rewinding machines to handle unwind widths of over 5m. 40 years later, it remains one of the premium brands in the industry specialising in the design and manufacture of primary and secondary slitter rewinders for a wide range of flexible materials including plain and metallised plastic film, labelstock, paper and board.

By continuing to push the boundaries of engineering and process control, modern Atlas slitter rewinders can accommodate 10.6m wide unwind rolls and process them at staggering speeds, up to 1,500m/min.

With its brands of Atlas & Titan, the company has to date installed more than 2,600 secondary Titan and 1,000 Atlas primary slitter rewinders worldwide, with over 250 film slitters exceeding six metres in width.

Titan secondary slitters comprise of the small footprint ER610, the highly flexible SR800 and two models of the high productivity SR9 series, one a duplex slitter rewinder, the other a duplex turret machine allowing operators to get the machine up and running again in typically 30 seconds from stop to start.
