Slitting & Disaster Recovery

Slitting

We have 6 slitting machines so we are able to handle most slitting requests. Our machines can handle reels up to 1650mm in width and 1000mm O/D but versatile enough to also convert small reels as well with thickness ranging from 12micron to 1000micron. Slitting a reel to a specific width is often the first stage of pouch converting.

Disaster Recovery of Damaged Reels

We specialise in disaster recovery of damaged reels, where a customer may have issues with one of their own reels, such as a crushed core or the reel may have telescoped due to poor winding. Correcting print lead-offs and reversing the winding on reels where sealing layers or incorrect sized cores may be an issue, is also a common fault. Reels may have quite simply been damaged in transit and need checking over as part of the insurance procedure particularly in relation to foreign bodies and BRC regulations.

We are also capable of providing an oxy-spraying facility where a silicon based, food approved powder is applied to either surface of the web, with a view of increasing the slip factor of a laminate which is proving difficult to run on a form fill and seal machine.
