Reduce waste and increase productivity with Tidland’s Edge-Trim, a self-contained shear slitting unit for continuously moving flexible webs. Blade setup time is virtually eliminated during trim changes by quickly repositioning the knife pair (upper and lower blades) simultaneously, without disturbing the slit geometry to maintain the highest level of trim quality.

The Edge-Trim is available in manual or automated configurations.

Additional Options Available
Integration: Can be configured to run from customer’s PC via stand-alone program or an existing Human Machine Interface (i.e. RsView32, Wonderware).
