U.S. Tape and Label Opts for Prati Slitter/Rewinder
Pioneers of both digital and flexographic technology for label food containers, beverages, health and beauty products, and more, U.S. Tape & Label has opted for the Prati Saturn TE450 slitter/rewinder to enhance its production efficiency and exploit the versatility the equipment is sure to offer.
Totally flexible and based on the recently developed open-platform technology called Futura, the Saturn range of slitter/rewinders run at high speeds and offer maximum adaptability to future needs, avoiding downtime for retrofits and consequent loss in terms of production. Thanks to the Futura technology, the Saturn TE450 is also equipped to comply with Industry 4.0 standards and can be connected to customers' MIS systems to exploit data and improve production efficiency.
With its new generation motion technology and a unique self-sharpening slitting knife system, the Saturn handles a wide range of PS label materials on paper and film liners including the UPM PP30 and AD PET 23µm liners, booklet, tube laminate, aluminum foil, Tyvek, cardboard, multi laminate. Quick set-up routines ensure all systems are ready to run simultaneously, making it safer and faster to start producing.
One of the features of the Saturn TE450 machine delivered to U.S. Tape & Label was the FASTCUT system, which reduces set-up times and ensures unbeatable accuracy in knife and counter-knife positioning. Automation plays a key role in today’s machine technologies and Prati has played an important part in developing some of the market’s most reliable and advanced solutions. Consistent quality was an aspect U.S. Tape & Label was demanding; with the FASTCUT system the tolerance levels are extremely tight and also extends the life of the knives and slitting quality.
