Karlville Development Group has launched a new 300D high-speed, non-stop series featuring a Martin Automatic roll changing system. The new 300D with automatic roll change is designed to reduce production waste by 3% and increase throughput by up to 30% to create a higher quality product for less cost. This increased productivity equates to a fast payback for the converter. Key to the new system is the Martin MBEC automatic butt splicer and STR rewind that provide reliable, non-stop production. Martin Automatic added a number of new features to the STR to accommodate this specialized application and provide the required performance. The companies expect the elimination of materials waste and equipment downtime associated with manual roll changes to have a positive impact on the converter’s ability to be competitive while generating sustainable profit margins.
