Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd. was established in 1976 and specialises in the design and manufacture of primary and secondary slitter rewinders for a wide range of flexible materials including plain and metallized plastic film, labelstock, paper & board.
The company's success and expansion has made it one of the most successful manufacturers and a world leader in slitting & rewinding technology for the global converting industry, with an installed base of more than 1000 slitter rewinders. The company has twice won the prestigious Queen's Award for Export Achievement in 1983 and 1989.
Atlas is the only company to have designed and successfully installed the world's largest film slitters at 10 metres wide, with the fastest slitter rewinders running at up to 1500 metres per minute (m/min). There are more than 200 Atlas film slitters in production worldwide exceeding 6 metres in width and more 2 metre wide Atlas slitter rewinders in the global labelstock industry than from any other manufacturer.
In 1981, Atlas acquired Titan Converting Equipment Ltd. to add a successful range of secondary slitter rewinders to its portfolio, particularly slitters less than 2m wide for printed and laminated flexible packaging materials. One of the most successful products in the Titan range of equipment has been the renowned Titan SR series slitter rewinder, and together with other models Titan can now boast more than 2,500 slitter rewinder installations in over 80 countries winning the Queen's Award for Export Achievement in 1985.
Atlas and Titan both provide bespoke solutions for automated roll handling systems, with turn-key systems available including conveying and robotic palletisation to meet customers' specific requirements.
