Martin Automatic refreshes its popular LRD rewinder

Leading manufacturer of roll change technology, Martin Automatic, has refreshed its offering to the label, flexible packaging and folding carton markets which need automatic transfer rewinders for continuous production.  The company’s LRD line, designed for narrow and mid web presses, is used in a variety of applications including paper, film, label stock, light paperboard and tube laminates.

The latest LRD model accommodates roll diameters up to 800mm as standard, with larger diameter models available on request.  Operator control is via a touch-screen display, which in addition to high visibility and expanded diagnostics, includes recipe functions that allow operators to store and recall the winding parameters of repeat jobs.
The optional inline slitter package is now enhanced to offer lateral adjustment of the slitter and anvil roller assembly for quicker set-up, fine-tuning and change-over between jobs, and the latest LRD offloads finished rolls automatically via one of several standard doffing ramp designs for full width, multiple ribbon or loosely-wound rolls.  If the product rolls are small, or require special handling, an optional articulating arm automatically delivers finished rolls through the front of the unit for easy removal.

According to the company’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Gavin Rittmeyer: “As the industry leader in roll change and web handling automation, we’re known for designing simplicity, reliability and the most appropriate advanced technology into our equipment.  The latest LRD model highlights how Martin Automatic continues to develop and enhance products that give converters and printers the greatest versatility and value for their investment.”
