Industrial Razor Blades for Bandera Extrusion Line

Bandera Slitting Blades

The razorblade serves as a crucial tool for trimming and winding. It is the final point of contact in the production process, critically defining the winding quality of the roll. Make sure every element in your extrusion line is of the highest quality.

Generally there are 2 positions on a blown film extrusion line where razor blades are used.

Tube Opener Slitting Blades

An often overlooked part of an extrusion line is the razor blade that is used to cut open the extruded tube, resulting in 2 separate plastic film rolls. When a blade at this point does not perform, it can lead to low quality production , unplanned downtime and even scrap.

Trimming Slitting Blades

Industrial razor blades are used to slit the extruded film on exact width before winding. At the end of the extrusion process the plastic roll needs to be slit to the exact measurements of the customer. In roll winding the end product for your customer, the quality depends on the clean cut of the edges.
