Forstner nuSLIT Cut-to-Length

Forstner nuSLIT STRAIGHT PRO Cut To Length


On the Forstner nuSLIT slit and CTL, 5 sets of slitting knives come standard. The slitting shafts are 100 mm and made of polished tool steel and the slitting blades hardened with a Rc45 hardness. The tolerance between the shaft and blades is less that .0005” (.01mm), allowing for a smooth and easy positioning of the slitting blades anywhere on the shaft.

The slitting knives and blade gap are set into position by a linear ball screw via computer control. Positioning of all 5 pair of slitting knives take less than 60 seconds. Once the knives are in position, the slitting shaft hydraulically expands and locks the slitting knives around the shaft.

The knives have a two side cutting surface. So, you can alternate sides and take tension out of narrow slits. More slitting knives can be added optionally at any time



Not only is the coil-selector automatically controlled, but also the adjustment of the upper straightening rollers.

Whenever a new coil is selected, the upper straightening rollers adjust into a new position to ensure the straightening quality.

A special sensitive material operating mode prevents start-stop-lines by the upper straightening rollers and increases the quality of the coil-line enormously. Even a single sheet can be produced without coil-set or marking of the material by the automatically adjusted upper rollers.
