Westerly RI USA
The company has developed a vacuum system that removes dust at the slitters, to ensure the cleanliness of sheeted stock and minimize dust related defects at the press. Suction is applied during slitting, removing debris from the slit edge. The sheet metal bonnets enclose all but the contact edge of the top slitter blade and bottom slitter ring. Flexible hosing from each slitter is joined to a common manifold that is piped to a blower and duct collection box. The slitter dust removal system is particularly effective when converting high bulk board substrates or multiple webs of coated papers.
