Atlas to Install New Slitter/Rewinders at Film Company


BEDFORD, UK | Atlas Converting reports that OPP Film S.A., Lima, Peru, a rapidly expanding BOPP film producer and part of Oben Holding Group, will become the first company to install and commission the “next generation” Atlas CW5400 Series slitter/rewinder at 4.8 m wide. 

The first of two CW5400 film slitters ordered will be installed at OPP Film in Lima during Q3 this year and will be processing what is said to be the world’s widest metallized BOPP film currently available at 4,500mm. The second CW5400 film slitter will be installed and commissioned early in 2015.

Company says benefits of the new Atlas CW Series technology include higher efficiency, increased productivity and reliability, higher quality rewind reels, reduced noise levels, and more effective, operator-friendly control systems. The CW Series is also reported to have faster acceleration and deceleration cycles.

The latest technology features wireless rewind arm positioning, automatic knife positioning, and direct drive web path rollers said to ensure optimum web tension for films as thin as 6 micron and to 125 micron. Electrical cabinets are now fully integrated in to the machines to reduce the space required for installation with ‘under floor’ service channels no longer required.
