Butler Automatic, Middleborough, Mass., announced its newSP3HSL Series automatic film splicer, an automatic web splicing system for printed sleeve films for consumer packaged goods.

Film roll changes must occur in shrink sleeve packaging applications as frequently as once every 18 minutes, however with the SP3 automatic sleeve splicer, roll change time is eliminated.

Capable of running up to 450 feet per minute, the SP3HSL automatically splices the end of each expiring roll of film onto the new roll. It’s also ideal for new production lines as well as for retro-fit installation on existing packaging lines.
