This upgrade option can greatly reduce knife setup times and increase accuracy. With the digital knife display system, knives are moved and locked in place manually. However, a digital display provides the operator with the precise knife location. The display can be reset to 0 from either the side of the web or the last knife position.
The operator then simply moves the next knife into position, until the digital display reads to the correct location. The slitter control system’s file recipe feature, can store the desired knife locations for the operators reference. This option eliminates the need for operators to use tape measures, reduces setup time and increases knife position accuracy.
