The Portuguese converter Masterroll has invested in Lemorau CR1500 slitter rewinder, which is a newly upgraded version of its established CR1000, now able to process rolls widths up to 1500mm.

“After analyzing equipment from several manufacturers, we decided to purchase the new Lemorau CR1500 as it offers excellent price to quality ratio and is the ideal equipment for our project,” said André Pinheiro, CEO of Masterroll.

“Thanks to its ability to process large format reels (1500mm wide; 1500Kg), associated with installed technologies and the tension control system, CR1500 becomes a cost-effective investment, resulting in Masterroll becoming even more competitive on the market. The after sales was also a very important factor when making our decision as Lemorau is a local company, therefore we can rely on a fast and effective service,” added Pinheiro.

As standard, the new CR1500 features pneumatic unwind mandrel with lateral adjustment, maximum rewinder diameter of 600mm (24in), an automatic web tension control system, constant and taper tension, labels in and out rewinding, and 12 sets of circular knives.

For this specific project, Lemorau also equipped the CR1500 with the optional electronic web guide system and ultrasonic sensor, enables guiding of opaque and clear materials as well as a 6in air shaft.

Lemorau’s slitter rewinder can be also equipped with several other options such as an anti-static bar, QRC Quick Remote Connection, splice table and razor slitting knives.
