Knife Positioning System

April 18, 2006

A simple knife positioning system, which does not require high investments and allows all slitting machine operators to reduce their operating cost immediately, has been developed by Dienes Werke. With the positioning slide “Easy Set,” it is now possible to adjust the slit width easily and quickly. The positioning slide is pivoted down manually and then the complete knife holder is moved until the circular contact stud touches the bottom knife edge.

After having fixed the knife holder, the positioning slide is pivoted up again. It remains in its retracted position by means of a springy pressure plate until the next adjustment. Especially when using shear cut knife holders with integrated linear guiding, optimum user convenience and exact slit width adjustment within seconds is possible.

The application of the positioning slide grants higher safety, substantially less setup time, easy knife adjustment, more exact slit width adjustment, extended knife life and prevention of knife damage.
