Martin Automatic – Space-saving splicer shown at Labelexpo Americas 2018

USA • The company launched a new version of its MBS splicer at the Chicago label show. According to Martin Automatic the new space saving non-stop roll changer has the smallest inline footprint on the market, enabled by its integrated 90-degree turnbar.

During Labelexpo Americas 2018, Martin Automatic’s new MBS model on show in Chicago was sold to an US converting customer. The new model features a right-angle turnbar and requires 1700 mm (67”) of floorspace in the running direction.


According to the company, the combination of the space-saving MBS and ever-popular Martin LRD rewinder displayed at the show gave a book-end presentation requiring the smallest footprint for full-featured automation for label presses.

Martin also premiered 1/12 scale models of its machines for various industries beyond labels.  These drew a range of interesting comments and opened conversations among visitors, many of whom were appreciating the full range of Martin’s capabilities for the first time.
