Butler Automatic SP1 automatic film splicers are available with an optional register sensor that uses registration marks on the film to provide an automatic, in-registration butt splice. The sensor distinguishes between similar colors, enabling print across the full width of the film, even when the print is similar in color to the black register marks. The control software allows operators to relocate the sensor in the in-web direction when adjusting between products of different lengths or pitches by entering an offset value on the touch-screen user interface. The sensor is available for retrofit with Butler SP1 splicers equipped with a touch-screen user interface and a factory-installed bidirectional registered splice option.
