CTC International introduces automatic butt splicer

The Model S-900AB-ACV automatic splicer from CTC is suitable for splicing a variety of materials including tag, label, board, film stocks and other thick or double ply materials.

This heavy-duty cantilevered unwind design features integral roll lifting and can hold (2) full 40” diameter rolls, allowing new roll prep at any time in the splice sequence.

A horizontal web accumulator positioned on top of the splicer allows for a smaller footprint than any existing splicer which accommodates rolls this size.

Featuring vector driven unwind spindles as standard with optional servo drives optional, driving the unwind spindles keeps the machine footprint small and provides the ability to unwind very delicate materials; there are no brakes to wear and need replacement.

Automatic ‘gapless’ butt splicing with two pieces of tape for maximum security is standard. Both splice tapes are applied to the web when stopped, reducing chances of a missed splice. The splicer can be prepped to make a one-sided splice with the tape always on the same side without turreting the unwind rolls.

The splicer will be offered to accommodate a variety of web widths, line speeds and other process requirements.
