The SP3HSL Series Automatic Film Splicer is designed specifically for shrink sleeve applications. The product, an automatic web splicing system for printed sleeve films, will increase line efficiency in sleeved packaging operations by eliminating film roll change downtime. Film roll changes must occur in shrink sleeve packaging applications as frequently as once every 18 minutes, and changing the roll by hand wastes one to three minutes of production time. By incorporating the splicer, roll c hange time is eliminated, thereby increasing line efficiency by 9 percent or more in these applications. Capble of running at speeds of up to 450 feet per minute, the splicer automatically splices the end of each expiring roll of film onto the new roll. The technology is ideally suited for increasing production time in Consumer Packaged Goods and Pharmaceutical applications utilizing shrink sleeve packaging.
