Slitter – rewinders
Slitter rewinders cut big rolls into smaller ones. Rewind slitting means the web is unwound. While running through the machine it passed through knives or lasers. Narrower rolls are formed by rewinding the film or paper on one or more shafts.
Slitter, slitter rewinder and slitting machine are interchangeable names for machines that are slitting rewindly. For the slitting section there are three options: razor slitting, rotary shear slitting and crush cut slitting. Roll slitting is used mainly by converters.
