The automatic core positioning system replaces the use of lasers and other markers to align the cores against. The system works with cores down to 25 mm width and can be configured for different core diameters.

Slitter can also be configured with a print repeat length measuring system and impression counter. The system will measure the repeat length through the roll and can be set to alarm if the length is outside of pre-set limits. In addition to giving the total number of impressions on a roll, the impression counter also enables the machine to slow down and stop when the required number of impressions are on the roll. The customer has the option at the end of each set of rolls to produce a report showing the tension profile of each roll, the length of the roll, number of impressions, and the repeat length profile of printed material to form part of their quality assurance system.
