Important sale of FA300 fully automatic tape slitting machine

Friday, March 15, 2013

As UK & Eire agents for Ghezzi & Annoni, we are very pleased to report the important sale of a FA300 fully automatic tape slitting machine, complete with a full wrapping and pick and place packaging line to one of the UK’s largest independent manufacturers of technical adhesive tapes.

Complementing the 1650mm slitter rewinder is G&A’s new ATI 30 tape packaging machine. Integrated with the automatic slitter this machine can pack rolls individually, as a tower pack or as a concertina pack delivering up to 30 packs as per minute to G&A’s IP120 Pick and place box filling machine with silicone interleaving. A labelling applicator, automatic carton erection and sealing system completes the supply. The line can subsequently be linked to the end users fully robotic palletizing system.

Handling 3” cores the FA300 automatically loads the fresh cores on to the G&A differential rewinding shafts, whilst the machine automatically strips these same shafts of the finished rewound product. Automatic turret, end cut and wipe down (both on the fresh cores and the rewound product) allow the slitter to achieve ultra rapid cycle times.

“It’s this ability to provide complete slitting and processing solutions for companies using potentially problematic materials that has stood the company in good stead, resulting in a steady stream of orders from both the European domestic market as well as from overseas customers.” comments Mike Attard, Director of Eurograv Limited.

“Testament to this is that no less than 38 separate FA300 have been delivered to tape manufacturers and several leading converters in the space of three and a half years.”

This FA300 is due to be installed in central England in the spring of 2010 and is the 2nd of its type installed in the UK.
