Jurmet company, manufacturer of advanced slitter rewinders for flexible packaging materials has been granted the patent for its laser knife positioning system (European Patent No.1647377). The system reduces downtime for slit width changeover when setting the knives manually.
“This patent helps us keep the advantage we have over our competitors”, says Robert Kwiatkowski, technical director and co-owner”. When we started the development of this solution and saw the first results we knew that we had an unique solution and had to secure it”.
The laser knife positioning system is perfectly synchronized with the laser core positioning system. The width of slit is inserted to the Touch Screen Panel. Next after pressing a button placed on the back of the slitter the laser beam indicates the position of each following knife.
Jurmet says that the company currently works on a completely new automatic core positioning system. The operation of the system will be presented during Drupa 2008 show in Düsseldorf in the newest Master2 slitter. The automatic options, our research and development department works on, are the results of Jurmet marketing research which has led to the conclusion that the customers are looking for easy to use automatic options. This is a field our research and developing activities are focused on and this is the way we understand clever solutions.
