About Splitting & Stripping

A rubber slitting machine is a specialized industrial machine designed to split rubber materials into narrower strips or rolls. It is commonly used in industries that require precise and efficient cutting of rubber, such as the automotive, packaging, and textile industries.

Here are the key components and features typically found in a rubber slitting machine:

  • Unwinding system: The machine usually includes an unwinding system that holds and feeds the rubber roll into the slitting section. It may consist of a motorized unwind stand or a shaft on which the rubber roll is mounted.
  • Slitting section: This section of the machine is where the actual cutting or slitting process takes place. It contains one or more circular blades or rotary cutters that are positioned according to the desired width of the split. The blades can be adjustable to accommodate different cutting requirements.
  • Tension control system: To ensure accurate and consistent cutting, a tension control system is employed. It maintains proper tension on the rubber material as it passes through the slitting section, preventing excessive stretching or deformation.
  • Rewinding system: After the rubber material is slit, the machine has a rewinding system to wind the split strips or rolls onto individual cores or spools. This system may include motorized rewind stands, tension control mechanisms, and guiding devices to ensure precise winding.

Our Rubber slitting machines come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different widths and thicknesses of rubber materials. Some machines are designed for manual operation, while others are fully automated, offering higher productivity and efficiency. The choice of machine depends on the specific requirements of the application and the volume of rubber material that needs to be slit.
