Entry systems

Entry systems

Entry systems ensure that the material runs into the slitter under constant tension, accurately positioned and level. Strip positioning in front of the slitter takes place mechanically in our basic lines whereas in more complex production lines an automatic strip edge controller is installed. In this way the accumulation of edge strips and therefore the scrapping costs are reduced. For the highest cutting quality, a minimal but constant tension of the strip before the slitter is necessary as well as devices that keep the strip even. For this purpose, B+S offers a range of well-engineered systems.
