Slitter power heads types

Thank you for submitting your question. If I understand you correctly you have "full head" slitter design removable by crane for re-tooling purpose.

There are many different designs to overcome this issue and make this function semi or full automatic.

The easiest are injecta type slitter heads with a slide table for 2 heads or turn table with up to 4 heads.

Going to more complicated options such as:
- CNC slitter
- automatic tooling robots
- Tolling capstan

This all depends on your budget, available space, timing you would like to save etc.

If you give me more details, I might be able to direct you with something.

  3. Consider material handling elements such as coil storage racks if there is not a crane installed for keeping a coil car active.
