Press Release Summary:
Able to fill at high speeds, even when down-line process has been stopped, SplicePerfect™ GACC Vertical Accumulator allows for core changes and product splicing while process line continues atÂ constant velocity. Once rewind operation resumes, this festoon style vertical accumulator feeds out at speeds exceeding process line speed until all accumulated material has been paid out. System is custom designed to meet application requirements of continuous web processes.

New Glenro SplicePerfect(TM) Vertical Accumulator Improves Productivity, Reduces Downtime, and Reduces Costs in Continuous Web Processes
Summary: The Glenro SplicePerfect™ Vertical Accumulator allows for core changes and product splicing while the process line continues at a constant velocity. SplicePerfect™ can fill at high speeds even when the down-line process has been stopped—then once rewind operation resumes, the accumulator will feed out at speeds in excess of the process line speed until all accumulated material has been paid out.
PATERSON, NEW JERSEY – Glenro, Inc. of Paterson, New Jersey introduced today a new festoon style vertical accumulator for continuous process lines. Designated the Glenro SplicePerfect™ GACC Vertical Accumulator, the new Glenro accumulator model allows for core changes and product splicing while enabling the process line to continue at a constant velocity. The SplicePerfect™ can accumulate material at high speeds even when the down-line process has been stopped—enabling the upstream process to continue uninterrupted. Once the down line process resumes, the SplicePerfect™ system will feed out at speeds in excess of the process line speed allowing for continuous operation with no pause during core changes and splicing operations.
By permitting continuous process flow and by eliminating the loss of product due to line stops, the Glenro SplicePerfect™ accumulator can lower production costs while significantly improving productivity.
The Glenro Model SplicePerfect™ GACC Vertical Accumulator is custom designed to precisely meet the application requirements of a wide variety of continuous web processes and can be integrated into existing process lines. Both Glenro Center Unwind and Rewind systems as well as the Glenro Cantilevered systems are compatible.
