KTI - WHERE A NON-TRADITIONAL APPROACH IS THE TRADITION Keene Technology, Inc. is a world-class manufacturer of automatic splicers, turret rewinders, and other web handling equipment for numerous web-fed industries including tag and label, packaging, converting, printing, envelope, folding carton, and more. CUSTOMER CONCENTRATION All KTI equipment begins with a robust plate steel construction and the highest quality off-the-shelf components. Each unit is then tailored to meet the specific demands of the customer's application. A comprehensive list of options is available in each product line to give a greater level of automation and customization. A FULL LINE OF AUTOMATION EQUIPMENT KTI offers a complete line of non-stop web transfer equipment. ●●●●● Butt Splicers At the beginning of the operation, KTI butt splicers feed a continuous supply of material into the press. Never having to stop the press to replenish roll stock not only improves overall efficiency, but it also reduces waste by eliminating the need to bring the press back up to speed. ●●●●● Turret Rewinders KTI multi-spindle turret rewinders are an essential piece of equipment for many web fed converters. By eliminating the need to stop production for off loading of finished rolls, production output can be substantially increased. Several models are available to handle a variety of applications. 14357 Commercial Parkway · South Beloit, IL 61080 · 815-624-8989 · www.keenetech.com SUMMARY Although our products and services have expanded, KTI is still dedicated to the concept that got us where we are today, reliability, affordability, and a straightforward approach to doing business.
