Martin Automatic – A bumper drupa!

The Martin Automatic TMSL splicer as displayed at drupa 2016

GERMANY • To match Drupa’s broadening appeal, the Martin Automatic stand was designed as an interactive microcosm of the company’s knowledge and skill in automatic roll change, tension control, web handling and the principles and dynamics of web transport, and as such facilitated wide ranging discussions with visitors whose requirements were many and varied.

Highlights on the stand included a hands-on roller display, where visitors were able to experience the weight differences of three idler shells. The Airnertia and MDR roller demo allowed visitors to see the practical effects of roller mass on rotational inertia. Airnertia is Martin’s patented roller technology that uses a near frictionless air bearing system to minimise roller inertia.  Magnetic Driven Roller (MDR) technology actively accelerates or decelerates idlers rollers as the process dictates, to greatly reduce or even eliminate the impact of idler roller inertia and bearing friction.

Another popular display on the stand was Martin’s TMSL automatic splicer, which demonstrated how to unwind and splice both spooled and pancake rolls of film, nonwovens, or even foam, using taped or tapeless technology.  It illustrated the company’s platform approach to roll changing and showed how Martin uses complex engineering principles to create simple solutions that are easy to understand, use, and maintain.  For processes needing a hot melt splice, like fibreglass, Martin’s new hot melt glue feed showed how to deliver precisely metered adhesive.
