Automatic Score Knife Positioning

The latest Catbridge automatic score knife positioning system provides fast, accurate, repeatable slitting. This system can place up to 120 knives and allow slit widths as narrow as 1/2″. New features minimize mechanical errors and position score knives with an accuracy of +/-0.015”. Well-planned integration of the positioning system to minimize slit web length further enhances finished roll quality. A storage compartment houses blades for numerous cuts and slit patterns.
