5 SETS OF SLITTING KNIVES

Slitting

5 Sets of slitting knives come standard on the Compact series slitters. The unique “Cap-Locking” system gives you trouble free slitting the life of the machine. The shafts are 100mm. The tolerance between the shaft and blades is less that 0.01mm which gives you a smooth and easy to move positioning of the slitting blades anywhere on the shaft. The caplock consist of a half moon mild steel that presses onto the shaft by an allen head screw. Since the caplock is softer that the shaft, you do not have to worry about “scoring” the shaft like other designs tend to over time.

INTUITIVE CONTROL

S1 – Control

The SPS-S1 Control touch screen with intuitive features, that allow you to en-ter different quantities and lengths. The control uses the Electronic Eye to automatically set the zero point on square material. The control features a “material savings” mode which automatically stops the machine, raise the slitting knives automatically and then moves forward to cut the piece to length, while leaving a clean edge. An optional radio remote can be purchased when adding later on a powered decoiler or recoiler, so the operator has everything under control.

The new Forstner SLIT is the traditional slitting and cut-to-length machine. Based on our years of experience, we have reengineered and optimized the machine so it now achieves even better results. The new Forstner SLIT is composed of proven combinations of traditional Forstner modules and can be combined with any decoiler. The machine is equipped with a wide range of functions as standard, creating a perfect working environment that meets the highest demands for efficiency and ergonomics.

The most important advantages:

  • Now even more compact without sacrificing strength.
  • LED slitting blade illumination.
  • Table can be operated from both sides.
  • Simplest splitting blade adjustment.

The infeed guide roller are angled to match the loop of the coil from a decoiler. This helps prevent creasing on soft materials like copper, aluminum and zinc..

Infeed Roller Guide

The table guide has four roller bearings (two on each side) to guide the metal in the pinch rolls. The roller bearings allow the metal to move easily forward and backwards without damaging the edges. This also keeps the material straight as the material is fed into the machine helping to ensure a square cut.

Table Standard

The slitting blade cover features a safety switch built into the 180-degree hinge. The switch shuts of all power to the infeed rollers and shear allowing you to safely adjust the blades. The 180 degree hinge allows you to fully open the cover without the need of additional supports.

Slitting Blade Cover

To simplify the adjustment of the slitting blades, we have installed an LED slitting blade illumination. This gives the system a visual highlight and contributes to the safe and quick adjustment of the slitting blades.

The film applicator can basically be mounted on any table. Using the deflection rollers and the fully rubberized feed rollers, the protective film is pressed on almost bubble and wrinkle-free. The device type F-AG z2mo has an additional arm with tension spring for tensioning the film during the return movement. This design is only applicable for single decoiling systems.

The coil guide is an important component for the function and accuracy of every system. The table has a fixed and a manually adjustable coil guide with ball bearings. The adjustment of the movable coil guide is done by a hand wheel. This specific table has rollers integrated in the table to ensure a smooth  surface. Table with roller guide available in both 1250 and 1500 mm.

If you want to prepare your line for a film applicator, then the option with the fully rubberized rollers is ideal for you. This means that your line is ideally prepared for retrofitting a film applicator at any time and with ease. Fully rubberized pinch rollers available in both 1250 and 1500 mm.

Fully rubberized pinch rollers

When you need to slit narrow strips or when doing a trim cut, we can offer you the right solution. Use our stripper rings that are perfectly suiting our slitting shafts to ensure even better slitting results.
