South Beloit, IL, July 20, 2015 – KTI, a world-class manufacturer of automatic splicers, turret rewinders and other web converting equipment, has recently developed a new turret rewinder with a smaller footprint and increased production speeds to meet additional customer needs. This machine, named the Mustang Series Turret Rewinder for its speed and durability, will be on display in the KTI booth at LabelExpo Europe in Brussels this fall. The new turret rewinder offers many additional features to KTI’s popular KR Series Turret Rewinder and is perfect for running pressure sensitive paper label stock.
The machine running at the show automatically loads cores onto the machine eliminating the need for an operator to load. This leaves more time for the operator to focus on machine efficiency and package finished rolls. The automatic core loading will allow for faster turret cycle times permitting shorter rolls to be run at higher line speeds.
The Mustang Series Turret Rewinder, available for purchase now, has 4 spindles and is available in web widths up to 20 inches (508mm), roll diameter up to 12 inches (304mm), speeds up to 750FPM (228MPM) and can run cores ranging from .75 inches to 3 inches (19mm to 76mm). Standard features include PLC touch screen controls, servo motor driven spindles, integrated dancer for superior web control, tapered winding tension and remote diagnostics.
Optional features available for the Mustang Series Turret Rewinder include a roll closure system, automatic core loading, slitting module and a touch screen HMI mounted on a pendant arm. Customers can choose from two types of core gluing: an automatic spray glue system with a hot melt tank and spray nozzle or the traditional core glue pot with an optional refill system.
