AB Graphic announces new Auto Slit

December 2, 2013

Auto Slit is a new digital knife box that automates slitting and set-up for labels and packaging production through HMI touch screen interface.

Bridlington, UK-based AB Graphic International Ltd. has announced the development of Auto Slit, a new digital knife box that automates slitting and set-up for labels and packaging production through HMI touch screen interface.

Designed for its Digicon, Omega and Vectra label converting lines, Auto Slit is designed to take slitting a step further in digital automation, removing pressure from the operator and permitting high-quality, precision cutting safely and quickly. The fully modular system can be supplied as an option with machine purchase or as a retrofit on existing converting lines supplied by the company.

Explaining the reasons for the development, Andrew Noble of AB Graphic International says, “Auto Slit saves on both time and material waste and permits set-up of the slitting knives through touch screen. The operator simply enters the job parameters into the system and the knives are automatically positioned in seconds. For example, a job requiring 15 knives can take up to five or ten minutes to set manually, Auto Slit permits this to be done in less than 50 seconds without handling the knives which also increases operator productivity.” 

AB Graphic International is a worldwide supplier of label converting and finishing machines with facilities in the UK, Netherlands, Spain, France, Germany and the United States.
