Martin Automatic to exhibit its two best sellers at drupa

Leading US manufacturer of unwind/rewind and web tension technology, Martin Automatic will be exhibiting two of its best-selling models at drupa in Düsseldorf – the Martin MBS automatic unwind butt/splicer and an LRD automatic rewinder.

The company’s ‘4Es ethos’ of Easy to use, Easy to understand, Easy to maintain, and Easy to integrate will underpin its presentation at drupa 2024. It will demonstrate to converters how to transform web processes into non-stop profit-making centres with the latest automatic splicing unwinds, rewinds and tension control systems.

The MBS is designed for non-stop unwinding in label converting, flexible packaging, light paperboard, pouch, and bag production and with specialty performance webs like filter media and resilient non-woven webs, as used in the construction industries.

The company says the versatile machine with its integrated roll loading, a patented linear sheer splice unit guarantees a single thickness splice on webs from 6 to 1300 micron, and configurations to satisfy demanding space considerations. 

Martin Automatic says its MB butt splicers offer flexibility and affordability for web automation in current and future market situations, with web widths ranging from 330 to 760 mm and roll diameters up to 1500 mm.

The LRD is Martin’s two-spindle non-stop rewinder for label, flexible packaging, pouch, and bag production and use with many other specialty webs for narrow to mid-web processes.  Its design allows production versatility that includes slitting, winding, and roll handling, with automatic roll unloading – no carts or operator intervention. 

The latest LRD is fitted with Martin’s operator convenience package that includes single point core loading, and automatic shaft handling. It is suited to converters looking to run webs from 330 to 850 mm width and roll diameters up to 1270 mm.

The MB and LRD product lines are just a slice of what is on display at Martin’s drupa stand. Other experiences allow customers to interact with technologies up to 3m web width and beyond, and web speeds up to 900m/min.

Martin Automatic, VP Sales & Marketing, Gavin Rittmeyer commented, We are delighted to be back at drupa after eight long years and look forward to welcoming friends old and new to our stand for some traditional American hospitality.”
