Used in applications that involve multiple slits and need the best quality cut, Tidland’s durable and reliable Hitchiker Linked Slitting System drastically reduces web-out slitter setup time and improves slit quality. The Hitchiker allows repositioning of knifeholders and anvil rings simultaneously, maintaining the critical blade-to-anvil relationship. This affordable slitting system is available in two sizes, and is capable of handling smaller systems with 2-3 knives, as well as larger systems. The Hitchiker retrofits easily to most machines, accommodating virtually any web width and any number of slits.
