Cleaning Device (Slit and Cross Cut)
The design enhances slit and cross cut quality when sheeting pressure sensitive materials or other laminates where adhesive build up on blades is likely. The design is straight forward to adjust and simple to retrofit to existing sheeters.
The top slitter blades are out fitted with a lubricated wick that removes the adhesive build up, preventing debris from collecting on the blade and transferring to the sheet’s slit edge. The wick can be trimmed after substantial build up develops or be cleaned of contamination as required, its depth adjusted to suit the need of the material being converted.
The cutting section is outfitted with a lubricated felt mounted over the revolver. Adjustable in position, it can be placed to wipe the cutting edge of the fly knife, cleaning the blade of adhesive build up preventing debris from transferring to the sheet’s leading or trailing edge. The felt can be trimmed after substantial build up develops or be cleaned of contamination as required.
