Atlas Celebrates 50 Years of Titan Slitters


BEDFORD, UK | Atlas Converting Equipment is celebrating 50 years of selling its Titan range of slitter/rewinders. To mark the occasion, the company will hold special 50th Anniversary Open House events during the autumn of 2014 at Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. in Bedford and at Atlas Converting North America in Charlotte, NC, where it will demonstrate the latest Titan slitter/rewinder technology together with some of Titan’s partner suppliers.

The first Titan duplex slitter/rewinder was built by Frank F. Pershke Ltd. in 1964, and the SR1 model was the first machine introduced in the Titan SR Series. In a period of no more than ten years, the Titan name had become established as a successful twin-shaft cantilever slitter/rewinder and was exported and installed in many countries around the world. The company says the success was, of course, in part linked to the huge development of extruded plastic film used for flexible packaging materials, which expanded rapidly worldwide during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.

Company reports that, of all the Titan SR duplex slitter/rewinders produced over the years, the SR6 model was the most successful, with 570 machines sold over a period of almost ten years from 1990 to the year 2000.

All Titan slitter/rewinders sold for delivery during 2014 will feature a special 50th Anniversary machine livery, and those customers will also receive a commemorative gift. PFFC congratulates Atlas on this special anniversary!
