MINNEAPOLIS — October 13, 2016 — Accraply, a leading manufacturer of automated labelling and converting systems, recently introduced the versatile and efficient Stanford 438 slitter rewinder. With ultrasonic unwind measurement, adaptive tension control, single or dual shaft winding, an onboard drive processor and an intuitive 12-inch touchscreen, the 438 is the most technologically advanced slitter in its class.
A cantilevered duplex differential slitter rewinder, the 438 offers converters an affordable, easy-to-operate, compact solution for their slitting needs. This machine is well suited for a wide range of products, including shrink sleeve, film, film laminates, self-adhesive label stock, paper and other flexible materials.
“We are very happy with the level of interest in Stanford’s technology,” noted Allison Fox, Converting Product Line Manager for Accraply. “The first 438 was sold during development, and it had a strong debut at the LabelExpo Americas event in September of 2016.”
Currently in its 74th year serving the converting industry, Accraply manufactures a selection of Stanford Doctor Machines®, duplex differential slitter rewinders, shrink sleeve finishing equipment and custom converting machinery.
