Dienes has introduced the Easy Set, a knife positioning system. The company says the systems does not require high investments and allows all slitting machine operators to reduce their operating cost immediately. The positioning slide is pivoted down manually and then the complete knife holder is moved until the circular contact stud touches the bottom knife edge. After having fixed the knife holder, the positioning slide is pivoted up again. It remains in its retracted position by means of a springy pressure plate until the next adjustment.
