January 11, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jan. 10, 2017 – Butler Automatic says its SP1 automatic film splicer is ideally suited towards food and beverage packaging applications, increasing efficiency in packaging operations by eliminating the packaging line downtime caused by manual film roll changes.
Boasting a “simple mechanical design and high-quality manufacture,” the SP1 promises to deliver long-term, trouble-free performance. The device senses the diameter of the expiring roll of film and automatically splices the end of each expiring roll onto the new roll, describes the company, adding that it is capable of running at speeds of up to 600 feet per minute. In addition to the standard SP1 automatic splicer, Butler offers the SP1 RB, designed for full wash-down capability, which features mostly stainless steel construction, with only specific splicing head cylinders using coated aluminum, and has minimal flat surfaces.
