Dual Slitter Station
Sheeters outfitted with MAXSON’s Dual Slitter Station have the ability to increase the number of webs converted while maintaining slit quality.
The design includes two banks of slitters mounted over one another, infeed and out feed rolls, and an AC drive mounted within a freestanding frame. The low inertia carrier rolls, mounted at the in feed and the out feed of the station, insure smooth trouble free flow from the unwind locations, through the slitter station and into the sheeter.
Heavy duty, top slitters which can be outfitted with dust collecting bonnets are air loaded against bottom slitter rings. The bottom rings of each slitter rig are mounted on a common shaft. Both lower shafts are driven by an AC motor that follow the sheeter line speed. The rotational speed of the lower anvils can be varied at the Operator console. Controls for engaging and disengaging the slitters are mounted on the frame. .
The slitter rig can be outfitted with a digital positioning system that permits the Operator to accurately locate the slitters. Using the digital read out on both banks consistent widths can be maintained, insuring pile quality. A fully automated programmable slitting system is also available.
