The newest Convertech air shafts can substantially reduce material waste when retrofitted to existing slitters.
A growing number of web converters are choosing to retrofit older slitters rather than purchasing new machinery to save on costs. There is an increasing need for more efficient and innovative air shaft designs to replace less efficient, older air shafts. Convertech's newest air shafts are not only highly efficient due to their patented design, but can also reduce material waste due to the quality of their design. This can provide a substantial improvement over older designs.
Easy set up and consistent web tension are high priorities that can dramatically influence the reduction of waste material. Convertech's new air shafts are precision-machined to ensure operators spend less time dealing with waste and more time producing perfect rolls. By ensuring that all shafts are machined to tight tolerances and produced with the highest quality materials Convertech's newest air shafts can have a dramatic impact on waste reduction.
"Since we installed the Convertech Differential Shafts on our Dusenbery 835..., we have had nothing but an increase in production due to less downtime. Not only can we run many different film widths across the shafts, but we can still maintain proper tensions - something that we were not able to consistently do prior on this slitter. Plus we are now able to run the slitter at higher speeds without any issues at all. To date, we are problem free as Convertech promised, plus the delivery date was outstanding," complimented Tom Cheatle of RTG Films, Chalfont PA.
Convertech's newly simplified wide and narrow air shaft designs mean less waste material and dramatically reduced downtime. Convertech also offers air shaft delivery in just a few weeks: much faster than the competition.
