LTX Splicer

LTX Splicer

A medium-high speed splicer ideal for paper, cardboard and other rigid materials.

LTX Splicer

The Model LTX is a medium-high speed, high performance splicer that MTorres offers in several configurations, depending on the required splicing speed, which can reach up to 600 m/min (1968,5 fpm). It is ideal for paper, cardboard and other rigid materials such as laminated papers used in printing processes, extrusion, lamination, etc. in numerous applications such as aseptic liquid packaging. The LTX model in its standard configuration is designed to work with floor pick-up type unwinders.

End Splice Unit

The Testa Splicing Unit is integrated in a trolley that moves horizontally from the splicing position to the preparation positions. Thanks to the vacuum system on the preparation bars and its ergonomic position, the operator can prepare the new coil in a simple and fast way.

The reliability of splicing with our splicers is close to 100%.

Multiple Storage

Depending on the required splice speed, a double, triple or quadruple storage can be incorporated in order to feed material (paper) to the line during the splice process, without the need to reduce the working speed. All the rolls are made of aluminum with the necessary surface treatment depending on the case. The storage is controlled by a floating system driven by a clutch. The desired output tension is selected by means of an electronic torque adjustment on the clutch.

Tension control

The second function of the storage is to act as a rocker arm during the unwinding process to keep the web tension constant, absorbing any tension peaks that may occur. A tension group controlled by an AC motor with frequency converter helps to control the web tension. A deviation of the storage from its zero set point has an impact on the speed of the tension group to recover the position without the tension varying. During the splicing cycle, the unit accelerates the new coil while maintaining constant web tension at the splicer output.

1) For substrates from 120/130 gsm.

The splice is made when the paper web is completely detached from the mandrel.

The band must be attached to the mandrel over its entire width, it cannot be partially detached from the mandrel.
