Label Press Runs Nonstop

Rockford, IL | Martin Automatic is supplying converting equipment to complement an eight-station, 22-in. Mark Andy Comco C2 press at Southeastern Printing Co., Palm City, FL. Label volume requires the new Comco press to run continuously as much as possible, so Southeastern chose a Martin MBSF butt splicer to match the Comco's printing capability. It features driven spindles and a very low-tension capability to handle light films (typically 1-mil BOPP and PET) at speeds to 1,000 fpm.

Printed rolls are rewound and automatically offloaded by a Martin LRD transfer rewind. With cantilevered spindle designs on both machines, operators benefit from not having to handle shafts at either end of the press.
