During the 10th Speciality Films & Flexible Packaging Global Summit 2023, SP Ultraflex introduced the Maxislit RL slitter rewinder machine that offers the superior performance of center cum surface winding within the user-friendly layout of duplex, center winding slitters.

During his presentation, Biku Kohli, managing director, SP Ultraflex Systems, stated that with a few customizations, the new slitter rewinder can be adapted to handle the entire gamut of flexible packaging substrates, from the thinnest to the thickest. He remarked that the machine “looks like a beauty but runs like a beast.”

Kohli elaborated on the machine’s key features that enable its versatility, explaining, “Constant tension in the slitting zone enhances edge finish. The ability to precisely control the finished reel hardness by utilizing all three parameters of TNT-Torque, nip pressure and tension enhances the machine’s flexibility in processing various substrates and thicknesses. Additionally, the consistent web length after slitting improves web alignment.”

He went on to add, “The immediate separation of web after slitting preserves the integrity of the edges. The simultaneous visibility of rewind reels on both shafts allows the operator to monitor the rewind section from a single position. Finally, the inclusion of cantilever shafts, ejectors, and off-loading arms streamlines the changeover process, making it quick and effortless.”
