Machine models: SP1 & SP1DL

This option lets the running roll completely expire and triggers a splice when it senses that the film starts winding back around the core in the opposite direction. This functionality maximizes web usage by reducing the amount of web left on the expired roll. It requires the end of the film to be securely taped to the core.
