SLITTING KNIVES

Our extensive experience in outfitting a wide variety of slitter lines allows us to provide a valuable service to your company. We work with you to design, develop and improve your cutting tools for each specific application.

Within its product line, ALFE offers tooling made of medium-alloy steel, high chromium steel, high-speed steel, etc., as well as titanium nitride coatings, titanium carbonitride coatings, and others, which yield greater wear resistance.

RUBBER-BOUNDED SPACERS

We supply rubber-bounded spacers made of highly wear-resistant alloy steels that are core hardened and covered in both nitrile and polyurethane of different hardness, depending on the material to be cut and its thickness.

We have considerable experience in designing male/female equipment, which allows us to determine the diameters for both pieces in order to make it easier to eject and minimize the problem of material marking. Made in different colours for greater convenience.

Rubber-bounded spacers are manufactured to the same tolerance requirements as blades.

METAL AND NYLON SPACERS WITH INSERTS

We offer our spacers made from tempered alloy steel, which is highly wear resistant and manufactured to strict tolerances to ensure perfect set-up, and with it, the maximum blade performance and the highest quality cut.

We offer the option to manufacture and supply emptied spacers to make set-up easier for your personnel.

In addition, as an alternative to the above, we also make nylon spacers with metal inserts, offering even lower weight while preserving good mechanical and tolerance characteristics.

Z.C. ASSEMBLED QUILLS

Z.C. Quills pre-assembled sets of slitting knives, metal spacers and rubber-bounded spacers. Their main application is to cut large tonnes of thin, constant-width strapping.

The Z.C. Quill assembly remains a single unit from the time it is set up, during subsequent sharpening and until the end of its cutting life.
