Winder Slitter

The winder slitter is a key section of the paper converting process, and is the area where paper is trimmed to the correct width to form the finished product. Paper is unwound, then slit to a pre-programmed width before being wound into a smaller roll.

The master roll is webbed through the slitter area, where it is then trimmed to size with sharp circular blades. The multiple strips of narrower paper formed by this slitting process are then individually rewound onto new cores to form the finished product.

With the paper web being unrolled prior to slitting, and rewound shortly after the slitter, there is potential for process interruptions or web breaks. Automated monitoring can support process continuity and efficiency.
