Bimec attended the 70th anniversary edition of K with great expectations, exhibiting one of its top-of-the-range models: the duplex turret slitter rewinder TCA 64C+. This machine was highly appreciated by the guests at the stand, who were able to learn about its main functions and discovered its technological innovations in terms of reliability, automation, and high performance.

Highly automated slitter-rewinder

Suitable for the slitting and rewinding of plastic films, paper and laminates, the TCA 64C+ is equipped with 3 AC asynchronous motors and digital inverters, has a semi-integrated unwind stand, splicing table and easy access to the slitting unit. Furthermore, it includes several automation features such as the automatic positioning system of the knife holders and multi-groove female knives, which are combined with the automatic single laser beam for core positioning and a reel unloading station, which allows the automatic opening/closing and rotation of the side stand arms.

Simple integration with other processing systems

Furthermore, the Bimec machine exhibited at the Sei Laser Spa booth, the STB 550 duplex slitter rewinder, also sparked great interest among the visitors, as they were able to see it in action as an integral part of a Pack Master laser perforation system. All the slitter rewinders in Bimec’s range, thanks to their design and the versatility of the configurations available, can be integrated with other processing systems such as perforators, rolls handling, embossing and inspection systems.

Bimec's expectations regarding this exhibition have been greatly exceeded: three important orders have been concluded and several new sales negotiations have been started. The storied Italian company was able to learn about the needs of its customers and partners, strengthened its relationships and gathered new ideas to provide more and more advanced slitting solutions.
