July 30, 2013

Neenah, WI-based Appleton Mfg. Division has introduced the Slabber XLA for nonwovens, an upgraded version of its Safe-Slab Core Recycler slabbing and core recycling unit.

The Slabber XLA was designed for a large consumer products company, and adds full automation and process integration to the Safe-Slab concept. Features include a conveyor for loading and moving rolls onto the slabbing arm; a laser mounted to the slabbing arm to guide roll positioning; precise, programmed vertical lifting of the roll for each cutting pass; a fully guarded and interlocked cutting area; a programmable cutting device mounted at the top of the enclosed cutting area; an exit conveyor or elevator for moving waste material to downstream processes; and an externally mounted operator control panel.

The Slabber XLA's overall design parameters may be altered to fit a variety of installation needs; and the cutting process may be adjusted to accommodate a variety of materials and capacities.
