The ARPAC team has developed a brand new splice bar to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to replenish the film by eliminating the need to rethread the film former. This nice addition is a great solution to increase uptime! The splice bar simply connects the trailing end of the film already in the machine to a new film roll.
The splice bar is available on new ARPAC L-series and Arrow machines. It can be retrofitted onto most existing horizontal machines, regardless of age, model, or manufacturer. The splice bar can be powered independently from the machine or hard wired to the machine. It is also designed to work with all film sizes.
