Middleborough, MA. Butler Automatic, the inventor and global leader of automatic splicing solutions, announces that it will showcase its SP1 and SP3HSL Automatic Film Splicers at PACK EXPO 2016, to be held November 6-9, 2016, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Butler Automatic experts will be on hand in Booth #S-3003 to demonstrate how the film splicers increase efficiency in a wide range of packaging operations by eliminating the packaging line downtime caused by manual film roll changes.


With a simple mechanical design and high-quality manufacture, the SP1 promises long-term, trouble-free automatic splicing performance. The device senses the diameter of the expiring roll of film and automatically splices the end of each expiring roll onto the new roll. It is capable of running at speeds of up to 600 feet per minute (FPM).

"The SP1 Automatic Film Splicer is an excellent investment for so many food, beverage, and medical device packaging operations because it drastically increases production uptime," said Mike Mucci, Vice President of Engineering at Butler Automatic. "Our customers see a complete return on their investment in just a few months."

In addition to the standard SP1 automatic splicer, Butler will showcase its innovative SP3HSL automatic shrink sleeve splicer, launched at PACK EXPO last year. Film roll changes must occur in shrink sleeve packaging applications as frequently as once every 18 minutes, and changing the roll by hand wastes one to three minutes of production time. The SP3 Automatic Sleeve Splicer increases line efficiency by 9% or more in these applications. Capable of running at speeds of up to 450 feet per minute (FPM), the SP3HSL is ideally suited for increasing production time in Consumer Packaged Goods and Pharmaceutical applications utilizing shrink sleeve packaging.

EXAIR’s High Capacity Quality HEPA Vacuum

EXAIR's High Capacity Quality HEPA Vacuum

EXAIR's compressed air operated Heavy Duty HEPA Vac attaches to an ordinary 30, 55, or 110 gallon open top drum to turn it into a powerful, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) quality, industrial vacuum cleaner. Like the Heavy Duty Dry Vac, it's powerfully designed to move more material with less wear. Engineered for dusty environments that require regular cleaning, the HEPA filter is designed with high capacity in mind. Ordinary vacuums can clog up quickly in environments with an abundance of dust or particulates. An economical, easily maintained pre-filter stops larger particles of debris while the HEPA filter handles smaller matter. The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac's lever lock drum lid fits any open top 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum. Moving it from one drum to another quickly, making it easy to keep different materials separate for recycling. www.exair.com/184/hepa.dirpr.htm
