Machine Concepts builds a full line of slitters for applications in finishing and cut to length lines.
At Machine Concepts our standard procedure is to test run and fully inspect all slitters and side trimmers at our facility prior to shipment. Thermal arbor growth is measured and recorded to ensure machine performance once installed. Arbor endplay, radial runout and tooling shoulder runout are also checked and held within tight tolerances. All machine inspections are fully documented and included in our service manuals.
Machine Concepts designs and manufactures a full line of hydraulically expanded, self-clamping slitter and side trimmer hub cutters/knife holders. These hubs are high precision, have excellent holding power, are easy to use, and are ideal for quick tooling setups or changes.
Machine Concepts designs and builds several types of side trimmers for applications in mills, cut to length lines and high-speed finishing lines to fit our customer’s needs.
Many heads include custom control packages – stand-alone or with communication and automatic setup capability.
Many new side trimmer systems can be compatible with existing scrap handling systems.
Machine Concepts specializes in custom-designed scrap choppers to accommodate all your slitting and side trimming scrap handling needs. Our capabilities include new machine development, upgrades and retrofits into existing lines.
