Machine models: SP1 & SP1DL

The Mini-Dancer allows the SP1 to function with processes where the film pull is subject to cyclic motions (typical of form, fill, seal process lines). The Mini-Dancer acts as an isolator/accumulator that helps stabilize the larger dancer in the splicer and provide more consistent film tension to the downstream process.  

Functions and Features


  • Allows SP1 to provide more consistent film tension to processes with cyclic film motion


  • Stabilizes film pull on dancer in splicer accumulator


  • Ring magnet encoder sensor to track line speed
  • Two  standard stainless steel rollers and one pivot roller



  • Adjustable tension devices on mini-dancer to accommodation varying process changes (speed, pull length, etc.)


  • Available as factory option or can be field installed by Butler Field Service
