Lathe slitting

All types of self-adhesive and non-adhesive materials can be slit to your specification on our lathe slitting equipment. Whether standard or non-standard widths, these processes are often the first step in production prior to die cutting, lamination, or printing. By lathe slitting on the original core without rewinding, widths down to 3mm can be achieved and low volume orders can be undertaken.

MAXIMUM LOG WIDTH: 1600mm
MAXIMUM LOG DIAMETER: 500mm
MINIMUM SLIT WIDTH: 3mm

Rewind slitting

Material slitting by rewinding from original cores through a knife system onto core size or type to your specification. This method enables any length to be rewound onto any individual core.

UNWIND: MAXIMUM LOG WIDTH: 1600mm
MAXIMUM LOG DIAMETER: 1000mm
REWIND: SLIT WIDTHS DOWN TO: 25mm

Frequently Asked QUestions

Slitting is cutting large rolls (master roll) of material in narrower rolls.

What are the benefits of Lathe Slitting?

  1. Bespoke sizing can improve your operational efficiency
  2. Sizing tailored to your needs can reduce waste
  1. Parts can be customized
  2. Reduction in your production process
  3. Bulk buying of materials can reduce cost
  1. Our minimum slit width is 3mm. Wider slit widths, the material becomes more stable.
  1. Shear: A male and female rotary knife
  2. Razor: A razor blade that cuts “in-air” or “in-groove”
  3. Score/Crush: A rotary blade pressed into a hardened anvil roller
