Mid-Size Precision Slitter

Our mid-sized slitter is designed specifically for manufacturers and warehouses that service the appliance, automotive, and electrical equipment markets, among others. This unit features a heavy housing structure and substantial arbor bearing construction. As a result, the Model 149 is capable of maintaining slit width tolerances of .001", much closer than commercial standards.

The substantial inboard housing is permanently attached and dowelled to the sub-base. The swing-away outboard housing rides on an air cushion for changing the cutter set up. When loading and unloading cutters and spacers the operator simply removes the arbor nuts, loosens the two housing bolts and pulls the outboard housing away from the arbors and table key.

Cutter arbors are chrome plated, heat treated, alloy steel which run in roller bearings with anti-friction thrust bearings to prevent lateral arbor movement. Thus close tolerances are maintained. The top arbor is easily adjusted vertically by use of a single outboard hand wheel.

Steel stripping rings are arranged in quickly adjustable, double pressure bar assemblies and are easily positioned through the use of hand wheels.
