AirTrim is expanding its pneumatic system trim and waste handling focus for the paper, plastic, film and foil converting industries, introducing the largest offerings of trim cutters in North America. In addition to seven standard cutter models, AirTrim also now offers cutter rebuild services plus the design capability to provide special sized trim cutters for unique applications which standard trim cutters cannot satisfy. The Trim Cutter Solutions focus provides a one-stop resource for the largest selection of both trim cutters and portable, compact trim removal systems in North America referred to as “MITS” (Move It Trim Systems). Additionally, AirTrim is the only supplier in North America offering design services for special width application trim cutters, allowing them to supply custom solution to specific customer needs.
“Trim cutting is an increasingly important and growing segment of the market, and we’re excited to offer the resources to assist customers in all phases of their trim cutter needs,” said company President Robert Patton. Companies increasingly need to reduce the cost and volume of their trim waste handling through cutting and/or chopping their material. In addition, heightened awareness of customer product security is also playing a part. Cut, chopped, or granulated unusable labels for packaging eliminate the potential for alternate, nefarious uses of their customers’ product; many label customers are starting to request destruction of these.
“Our Sales Engineering team is very customer savvy and understands the importance of assisting customers and partners at each step of the process,” continued Patton. “Their knowledge of the industry, along with many and varied solutions are a huge benefit to customers.”
AirTrim is a leader in designing, building and installing pneumatic material handling systems for domestic and international customers. From its centrally located Springfield, OH headquarters, they develop systems for a wide range of industries, including converting, food processing, fulfillment (digital printing), labelling, non-wovens and textiles, paper and tissue mills, printing, packaging, pharmaceutical and medical, plastics, recycling, and more. They evaluate each application individually to provide transmission and containment ideally suited for that particular situation.
