K3 – Seam Machine

This stand alone machine operates at 500 meter/min and forms the sleeves via an adjustable forming system. The K3 body is the basis for K4 and K5 models, and can be upgraded for higher levels of production with Turret Unwinds and Turret Rewinds.

The machine may be design in two available widths 350mm & 500mm lay-flat. The machine features fast changeover rewind and unwind air shafts and unwind perforation capability.

Micro Edge Guide for Solvent 2

Micro Edge Guide for Solvent Needle

Fiber Optic Sensor works along with Stepper Motor to align the solvent needle to the edge of the film.

Excellent Needle Positioning– This innovative device allows for excellent needle positioning without the worry of micro movements caused by roll changes, splices or slitter stops.

Micro Edge Guide– At 300 M/MIN, the micro edge guide will make quick movement to keep solvent at film edge.

Device Origin– This device was originally created for converters that ran blown film with uneven thickness and edges.

NO Longer Need to Stop due to Adjust Needle– Operators are continually adjusting the placement of the needle to the edge of the film. Operators worry about micro movements that will place the solvent inside or outside the required placement. Your operator will no longer need to adjust needle during each roll change, splice or slitter stops as the device automatically adjusts to the required edge.
