At 900 FEET PER
MINUTE these are the world's fastest 35mm
color positive processors commercially available.
TFS processors are of the sprocket drive type. All drive sprockets have
teeth on both sides of the sprocket. Each rack has 15 sprockets which
can be easily released and rotated individually for easy threading of
EXTREMELY LOW MAINTENANCE-Gear
replacement is on a yearly rather than weekly
or monthly basis. Only the developer and accelerator have
plastic main bearings which require periodic replacement.
HYDRAULIC RAM OPERATION-The
entire rack assembly may be lifted out of the tanks for easy inspection
and dry running of the processor The hydraulic piston is hard chrome
DAYLIGHT OPERATION of the entire wet section.
VERY COMPACT DESIGN-depending
upon the type of feed station ordered the entire processor can be as
short as 51 feet (15.5 meters).
DESIGN-all tanks are constructed of 11 gauge
(.120 inch) type 316 stainless steel or Titanium. The feed station, dry
box, and takeup stations are all constructed of type 304 Stainless
SOUND TRACK APPLICATION
is effected with the TFS EXTRUSION STRIPER.
This application method extrudes the sound track stripe, rather than
rolling it onto the film.
The feed station employs a
DIGITALLY CONTROLLED RAMP DOWN;
this allows the feed roll to come to a very soft stop without requiring
any operator assistance and provides for a very long splice time.
The BREAK SENSOR
SYSTEM has one or two break sensors per rack. Upon
detection of a brake the machine will automatically come to a stop.
Location of the break in the processor is centrally displayed.
The machine speed is
