Tape Slitting

Tapeworks employs several different slitting methods depending on the product and end use. The two basic types of slitting are rewind and single knife. Each provides unique benefits to the customer.

Rewind slitting is employed for long length rolls, materials which easily cross tear, such as UPVC, polyester films or foils. Tapeworks uses both razor and score knives for rewind slitting.

Single knife and lathe slitting is the preferred method for short runs, odd widths, and tight tolerances. Tapeworks uses both bayonet and circular knives on the lathes to insure the highest quality cut achievable.

Tapeworks can hold width tolerances of +/- 0.005 inches with either of these slitting methods.
