Jarshire announces new Espo Large Slitting Module
Represented in the UK by Jarshire Ltd., Espo is a leading manufacturer of slitting systems, knife-holders and industrial blades for all flexible materials and its products cover a wide range of applications for the tissue, paper, converting, non-woven, corrugated cardboard, film and foil markets.
Developed from the tried and tested Espo Genius system, the new module brings unique safety features, quick setting of cant angle, depth of cut and new developments in blades to increase blade life. Quick replacement of blades and bottom knives means that down-time and setting times are reduced whilst Espo’s reputation for speedy and high quality cutting is maintained.
Main features of the company’s slitting systems include a quick and accurate positioning system; reliable and user-friendly knife-holders; different slit widths and styles, such as shear, razor and crush cutting; and the use of a certified range of steels and materials for blades and bottom knives to suit different slitting applications.
Systems may be manual or automatic and are fully customisable to achieve customers’ requirements and all incorporate features designed to improve the slitting quality and reduce slitting problems as well as minimise set up and maintenance time.
In conjunction with Espo, Jarshire will offer a fast, comprehensive and efficient sharpening and maintenance service as well as a rebuild and overhaul service to upgrade winding/rewinding and slitting machines.
