Machine Concepts builds a full line of slitters for applications in finishing and cut to length lines. Some common applications include:

  • Drop in self contained heads to replace or complement existing slitters
  • High precision heads for light gage high speed lines running aluminum, steel, and red metals
  • Traditional finishing and cut to length lines
  • Slitter upgrades including new drives (Retrofit onto existing heads), new fixed bases, or improved arbor and bearing precision
  • Arbor upgrades to accept hydraulic hub cutters/knife holders

Many new slitters designed to be compatible with existing scrap handling systems


  • Heavy duty, rugged housings
  • High precision SAE 4150 flame hardened arbors
  • Synthetic grease lubricated arbor bearings for lower operating temperatures
  • Dual full length eccentric sleeves for knife overlap adjustment Passline remains constant at all knife diameters
  • Both arbors driven via single input drive shaft on back of main housing
  • Slide out style outboard housing
  • Appropriate thread tables
  • Scrap chutes or diverters
  • Lifting taps and burnouts provided in all equipment


  • Hydraulically expanded hub cutter/knife holders
  • Motorized knife overlap adjustment
  • Arbors driven via single input, dual output pinion stand with several choices or "U" joints or specialty couplings
  • Swing out outboard housings for better access to tooling
  • Complete sets of tooling including precision spacers, knives, stripper rings, and hydraulic jet nuts
