Combination for label press

MARTIN AUTOMATIC has installed a new MBSC/STR splicer and rewinder combination on the latest Mark Andy P5 narrow web label press at Flexographic Trade Services in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Matching the press speed of up to 150 m/min, the new MBSC/STR equipment is seen as a practical and affordable upgrade that significantly boosts productivity and reduces material waste for more a profitable operation.

The MBSC shares many features and capabilities with Martin’s MBS splicer, including the same patented rolling-shear splice unit, lift-and-load roll loading from the aisle, automatic roll side-lay to insure that webs are aligned at the splice, and inertia-compensated festoon. Martin Automatic spokesman Gavin Rittmeyer points out that the MBSC has been specifically designed for narrower web widths up to 330mm and smaller roll diameters up to 800mm, making it an ideal fit for the majority of label presses in use today.
