Doctor Machines

DM12

Don't throw out bad material - Doctor it!
Despite the multiple advances in technology, every seamer will still need an inspector to accompany it. Even our non-stop seamer. There will be rolls that have small solvent voids, either where a splice occurs, or when the machine stops and starts. Gone are the days when every foot of material had to be inspected for good seam quality or extreme layflat variations. With better equipment, and better trained operators, the problems that plagued the industry in the beginning are mostly gone.

That’s why we don’t even refer to our machine as an Inspector, it’s just a Doctor Machine, the same that we’ve made for decades. But don’t devalue the need for this machine, it’s still an important part of the shrink sleeve process. 

Maximum Web Speed: 500 mpm
Layflat Range: 50 mm - 305 mm 
Maximum Diameter: 610 mm
Rolls per shift: 40
