THT MTorres splicer

THT is one of the highest performance splicers in the market

There are two models: THT-90 which is capable of performing at speeds up to 650 mpm (2.100 fpm) and THT-130 which is able to work over 800 mpm (2,600 fpm). It is ideal for paper, paperboard and other rigid materials to be used as laminates in processes of printing and coating-extrusion and also applications such as Aseptic liquid packaging.

THT MTORRES splicer is suitable for turret unwinds but also for floor pick-up models.
In its typical configuration THT includes:

Butt splice unit
This unit is vertically adjustable by means of motorized ball-screws with a vacuum system making the splice preparation easy and ergonomic.

Multiple festoon
The festoon is used for paper storage and feeds the web at top speed during the ‘zero-speed’ splice cycle. It is moved by motorized ball-screws controlled by drive-motors including a pulse encoder for monitoring the position.

Pull & Brake unit
Is used to control the web tension, and can allow running off the core.

DATA:  The possibility to operate with up to 130 meters of stored paper for splicing at 800 mpm.

Dancer roller
This roller is located at the exit of the festoon keeping the tension constant by acting on the pull&brake unit.

Motorized photocells
Automatic sideways alignment of the new roll and expiring roll at splice. This system also incorporates web break photocells and a laser that marks the right position of the web for easy splice preparation.

Tail grabber
Holds the remaining web when running off the core and takes it out from the line.

Aluminum catwalk
Access to the main parts of the system for maintenance operations.


Main feature

High quality for the most demanding processes

The high end THT splicer includes the MTORRES tension control system, based on unwinding control with a motorized chuck by means of an AC Motor, guaranteeing a constant web tension that allows high quality production for the most demanding processes of Converting.
