Tinplate Slitter

Duplex Slitting Machine and Single Slitting Machine for Metal Sheets

Duplex Slitter - Single Slitter

Slitter is used to cut tinplate sheets into can body blank of required size, also named as tinplate slitter or tinplate slitting machine. The duplex slitter cut metal sheets at two directions, and the single slitter shear tinplate sheets as strips in one direction. Whether duplex slitting machine or single slitting machine, they also can be used to slit the aluminum sheets for metal works industry. In the fully automatic can making line, the transfer system to connect can slitter and can body welder is available, the cut blanks are fed to blank magazine on roll forming station of can body welder from can slitting machine. The tinplate sheet slitting machine can be equipped with carbide roller cutters, then the tinplate sheet slitter is more endurable.

Electromagnetic System for Blank Transfer to Second Table

Electromagnetic System for Blank Transfer to Second Table

After the first slitting, for the conventional technology, the blank strips are commonly conveyed horizontally by drop bars, now, we update it as electromagnetic system, the strips are sucked more stably and dropped more smoothly, avoiding the swing and deviation, then pressed down onto the conveying table, this type of design is more flexible for any size of blank formats.

Remote Control of Gang Slitting Machine

Remote Control of Gang Slitting Machine

For the metal sheet slitters made by GR, we totally equip remote controller for each machine. The customers can use the remote controller to operate the machine. So the operators do not need to stand nearby the electric control box. This is more convenient and easier for the can makers. Through the remote access of slitters, one operator can manage multiple gang slitters.


Chrome Shaft and Cast Iron Framework

Chrome Shaft and Cast Iron Framework

The shaft is made of 40Cr, this type of material is very strong and endurable, and the surface of shaft is polished smoothly, this processing technology implements features like no friction and no wear.  


For the needed precision at every station, the framework as well as the bearing houses are made of ironcast with large wall thicknesses. The roller cutters are made of finest-grain carbide for high durability and low grinding frequency. 


Mechanical parts have been replaced by maintenance free parts. This concept comes along with easier adjustment, better performance and greater reliability. 

Grinder for Roller Cutters of Tinplate Slitting Machine

Grinder for Roller Cutters of Tinplate Slitting Machine

For the duplex slitting machines and single slitting machines, the roller cutters need to be repaired after long term use. For each set of tinplate slitter delivered, we equipped one set of grinding machine to repair the roller cutters. For the carbide cutters, it is sufficient to repaire one time per year, and for the SKD cutters, one time per month.

Duplex Slitting Machine - Single Slitting Machine

double slitting machine and single slitting machine for metal sheets

The tinplate sheet slitter is the first station of the can making line. It is used to cut the tinplate sheet or stainless steel sheet as can body blanks of required size or strips for can ends. The duplex slitter or single slitter made by GR are versatile, precise and robust. For the single slitting machine, it is suitable for strip dividing and trimming, and for the duplex slitting machine, it is horizontal cutting with vertical cutting. When the tinplate shearing machine is running, the upper cutter and lower cutter are rolling on the both side of printed and lacquered metal sheets, the quantity of slitting cutters is based on the number of strips and blank formats. The distance between each cutter is easy and swift to adjust, so the type of tinplate cutting machine is also named as gang slitter or gang slitting machine. The carbide cutter is available for the canmaker. Before the duplex slitting machine or single slitting machine, the automatic sheet feeder is equipped to suck and convey tinplate by sucking disc with pneumatic system and double sheet detection device. After shearing, the collector and stacker can automatically output, and the transfer between slitter and canbody welder is also available. GS-D or GS-S series automatic tinplate slitting machine with tinplate cutter is your good choice when you select tinplate shear.

 


The double slitting machine consists of

1 Underframe

The new design of our slitting machine for can making industry is equipped with underframe, each station is fixed on the underframe, so the machine is more stable in running, more stable during shipping delivery, when the slitter reaches the customer’s factory, the customer just needs to connect each part by screws, not necessary to complete complex work of installation and adjustment.

2 Electric and pneumatic system

The automatic double slitter for tinplate is controlled by electric box and pneumatic system, the electric and pneumatic device is international brand.

3 Machine frame

The slitter frame wall is made of cast iron, it is totally different from the common steel of like product, more stable and more endurable.

4 Gang roller cutters

The roller cutter is the blade used to cut the tinplate, there are SKD blade and carbide blade for selection.


How does the automatic double slitter work?

1 Automatic loading and feeding

The loading station can support stacks of tinplate sheets, ensure the continuous production. And the sucker will suck the tinplate and feed the sheets to the next station by the chain with push dog.

2 Vertical Slitting

The first slitting station is used to cut the tinplate as strip, and trim the edge of tinplate sheet. The roller cutters are adjustable depending on the required quantity of strip.

3 Conveying and positioning

Between the first slitting station and loading feeder, there is a conveying station with chain to push and position the tinplate, and between the first slitting station and the second slitting station, there is another conveying table to change the conveying direction of tinplate strips, then push and position the tinplate strip to the next slitting station.

4 Horizontal slitting

The second station is used to cut the tinplate strip as piece based on the required can body blank and trim the edge of tinplate piece.

5 Collecting and stacking

When the tinplate is totally cut, on each channel, the tinplate is collected on the table as stacks, and when the stacks of tinplate are full, the double slitting machine can push out the tinplate piece by button.
