Butler Automatic, the inventor of automatic splicing solutions, announces that it has developed an enhanced register sensor for new and existing SP1 Automatic Film Splicers. The register sensor improves upon the previous sensor’s accuracy and reliability, and features software that more precisely controls the splice position, thereby reducing packaging film waste.

sp1-1-jpeg_buThe register sensor in the SP1 Automatic Film Splicer uses registration marks on the film to provide an automatic, in-registration butt splice. In doing so, the splicer provides the downstream process with a consistent product pitch or imprint spacing, eliminating the need for re-registering the film in the process after a splice.

Butler’s register sensor delivers a range of sensing and has proven to be reliable in distinguishing between similar colors than the prior generation. As a result, manufacturers are now able to have print across the full width of the film, even when the print is similar in color to the black…
