Oak Brook, Illinois, February 24, 2022- Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, today unveiled the Tidland, a Maxcess Brand’s, Advantage Series Knifeholder. Ideal for packaging, tag and label and converting customers who require quality narrow width slits, the Advantage Series offers customers Tidland quality and easy maintenance at an attractive price point.

“With the Advantage Series, we wanted to improve our narrow slit knifeholder offering to give our customers the slit quality Tidland is known for at a competitive global price point,” said Aaron Powers, Global Product Manager for Tidland Slitting Solutions. “Customers will notice reduced downtime using the removable blade cartridge to make changes off-line. In addition, the blade cartridges are reversible, allowing customers to cut on both sides of the knife rings for extended blade life and reduced maintenance costs.”

Featuring minimum slit widths of only 19.5 mm (0.768 inches), the new Advantage Series offers precision depth control adjustment for blade overlap and extended side-stroke distance to simplify the setup process.
