TIP MWU-1007 Optical Splice Initiation System
Machine Model for Improvement
All splicers with fixed position roll stand
Description of Improvement
This upgrade is part of the Technical Improvement Program (TIP); Optical splice hardware for Tailgrabber™ application. The tailgrabber is a combination of photo sensors, mercury switches and software that monitors the paper near the core.
When the corefinder is enabled and the photo sensor sees the paper pull off the core, a splice is initiated by the software. The maximum optical splicing speed is 600 fpm.
- Reduced risk of web break if paper tears near core
- Automatically initiates splice without operator intervention
- Minimizes waste left on roll
