Preco Opens Clean Slitting Center


SOMERSET, WI | Preco reports the opening of a Polymer Clean Slitting (PCS) Center in its Somerset facility. Company says the new facility addresses the growing demand for precision slit polymers, optical films, composite laminates, and other precision coated substrates.

The PCS Center provides toll converting of master rolls in a work center specifically designed to provide debris-free slit rolls. This slitting enhancement is achieved by controlling work center variables, employing noncontact slitting and facilitating stringent roll handling protocols. In addition to developing this proprietary process, significant effort has been made to provide specific equipment in conjunction with a clean work environment that incorporates HEPA filter air handling.

David Johnson, Preco’s key account manager responsible for PCS Center sales, says, “…Our market analysis indicated strong interest in the PCS Center, and as a result, we had multiple programs lined up prior to our opening to take advantage of this proprietary process. We have expectations of improving our customer’s yields 50% in some cases with the results we have been able to generate to date.”

Preco’s COO Randy Schuster says, “…The scope of this center fits well with [our] primary focus of contract manufacturing, web handling, laser processing, and clean room operation, along with a seasoned staff of applications engineers that thoroughly understand and can support the Polymer Clean Slitting process. It was important that we take a leadership position in this segment of the contract slitting market.”
