LTX MTorres splicer

LTX MTorres splicer
LTX is a medium-high speed and high performance splicer with different configurations for different splice speeds up to 600 mpm (1,970 fpm). It is ideal for paper, paperboard and other rigid materials as laminates in processes of printing and coating-extrusion and applications such as liquid packaging.

LTX MTORRES splicer in its typical configuration is suitable for floor pick-up unwinds.

Butt splice unit
LTX uses horizontal motion to move to the different splice preparation positions. Thanks to a vacuum system in the preparation bars and to an ergonomic design the operator can make the splice preparation easy and rapid.

DATA:  The reliability of our splicers is nearly 100%.

Multiple festoon
Depending on splice speed requirement the splicer can incorporate a double, triple or quadruple festoon for paper storage and feeds the web at top speed during the ‘zero-speed’ splice cycle. All rollers are aluminum rollers with surface treatment where needed.

The festoon consists of a floating system of rollers coupled to a clutch. The exit web tension is set by an electronic adjustment of the torque in the clutch.

Web tension control
The second function of the festoon is to act as a dancer roller during the unwinding process to keep the web tension constant, and absorb any sudden tension variations that might occur.

A Pull&Brake unit controlled by an AC motor with frequency variator helps to control the web tension. The deviation in position of the festoon with respect to the set point corrects the speed of the pull&brake unit. During the splice cycle the Pull&Brake unit accelerates the new roll, maintaining the web tension constant at the exit of the splicer.

Main feature

More versatility, same speed

Depending on the required splicing speed, the LTX can include a double, triple or quadruple festoon in order to feed the material (paper) to the line during the splicing process without reducing the production speed. 

Standard features

  • Transfer is made at ‘zero-speed’ allowing line to remain at top speeds, increasing productivity and decreasing waste.
  • Maximum performance and reliability.
