Products: Butt Splicers

Okay, we admit it. "Butt splice" sounds funny. Or maybe painful. But a Martin butt splicer is serious automation for many web-fed processes. A butt splice joins two webs together--typically, the end of an expiring roll to the beginning of another. The two ends are trimmed straight and brought together so that the ends do not overlap. A thin tape, over the top or bottom of the splice, or both, holds the splice together. This splice method is required in applications where the thickness of overlapping webs is unacceptable. A Martin Automatic butt splicer performs this splicing function without slowing or stopping the process. Martin has designed butt splicing systems for webs less than one inch wide to as wide as 130 inches! If you don't see quite what you're looking for, please contact us to discuss your specific needs. We invite you to put our resources to work for you.
