Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd completed the installation of the first “next generation” Atlas CW1040 Series primary slitter rewinder at Tri-Pack Films Ltd., based in Karachi, Pakistan at the end of December 2012. This 8.7m wide primary film slitter has been installed in conjunction with a new high speed BOPP film production line also scheduled for start-up at the same time.

In addition, a new 3.25m wide Atlas CW3600 Series secondary slitter rewinder was also installed.
