Roll Slitter & Web converting equipment

The slitting and rewinding machine is a solution for unwinding, assembling, slitting, and winding coils of various materials.

Specialized in the automated transformation of coils, it allows to realize different actions:

  • unwind a single coil, cut it and rewind the substrate into several smaller coils;
  • obtain a single coil from several smaller coils;
  • assemble and join several coils together to obtain a larger quantity of substrate.

The automatic slitter rewinder is particularly used in the graphic, printing paper or toilet paper industry.

A slitter rewinder adapted to the requirements of the industry

The slitter rewinder is indispensable in the industrial world. It produces small products that are easy to process and suitable for transport and logistics. The slitting of rolls is carried out on one or more layers, depending on the production requirements.
