Company Overview
Purchased by Quantum Design in August 2018, CTC is a well-established manufacturer of custom engineered Unwinds, Splicers and Rewinds. Over the years, CTC has expanded greatly into the automation of virtually any web fed converting process custom engineering machines for automating the raw material, finished product and waste byproducts in a range of industries including tag & label, packaging, film, nonwovens, building materials, wire & cable, food, cosmetics, composites and a range of other applications.

Founded in 1961, the first product was the unwind tension compensator – now familiarly known as the “800C”. There are over 10,000 of these units in operation globally. The 800C012 Unwind Tension Compensator is a basic, completely mechanical servo mechanism for controlling unwind tension in any roll fed application which has moderate acceleration characteristics, does not require extremely low tension and does not have severe intermittent web dynamics. This unit is easily used with film, foil, paper, tape, wire and similar materials. When the sensing rollers change their position in response to changes in roll diameter, speed, acceleration, and brake coefficient of friction, the feedback cable adjusts the compensating brake to keep the system in equilibrium.

CTC butt splicers, supporting web widths up to 20 inches, offer the most user-friendly design on the market in a small footprint with a space saving design and integrated roll loading system. These machines feature extremely rugged construction and a functional and economical means for butt splicing of narrow webs on a non-stop basis. Single sided splicing tape applied to one or both sides of the web secures the splice.

CTC also offers lap splicers, splice mechanisms and tables, turret rewinders, unwind and rewind stands and more. Visit for more information and to view all products available from CTC.
