IPSWICH, U.K. - March 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Two years ago, Universal Converting Equipment developed its X8 slitter rewinder. It was an evolution of previous machines with extensive automation to virtually eliminate operator input allowing the machine to run continuously. It was launched to a small number of customers to allow the automation systems to be fully tested. It was introduced to the market at the K2022 exhibition and we will have one on our stand at the ICE 2023 exhibition. We are being told that it is the "Most productive duplex slitting machine in the world"

Universal Converting Equipment looked at all the set up and running requirements and automated them. In addition, due to the high output of the machines, the Universal X8 can also be integrated with roll handling systems to weigh, label, wrap and palletise the finished rolls.

The rewind shaft automation also prevents repetitive strain injury caused by frequent loading/positioning of cores and unloading of finished rolls. Operator safety must be a priority and if the tasks are automated, the risk is removed. Multiple laser safety scanners and physical guarding ensures there is no access to the machine unless it is in a safe condition.

Does the system work? Universal were instrumental in the $8mn automated slitting operation installed last year at Bryce Corporations, Searcy, USA manufacturing operation. This installation included multiple X8 slitting machines, automatic unloading and labelling, automatic roll wrapping and automatic palletising. Since installation, Bryce has achieved record levels of production. In answer to the "does it work" question, Bryce visited us at the K 2022 exhibition and ordered another 2 X8 machines. They stated that no other companies were prepared to guarantee the performance level being achieved by the Universal X8 slitter rewinders.
