  • Tidland ESP – Electronic Slitter Positioning System

    Designed to save downtime and increase productivity, Tidland’s ESP – Electronic Slitter Positioning System allows an operator to move 10 knives in under one minute with the web in place with accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm (0.004 inch) deviation.

    Created for use in mill finishing and other large-scale converting operations, the ESP delivers intuitive, easy-to-use touch screen interfaces and can retrofit to most winders regardless of web path. Typical materials include: coated and uncoated boards, tissue, newsprint and fine papers. This robust system has been specifically designed to perform reliably in the most demanding environments.

    The ESP’s modular design allows for easy upgrade from the manual version, and easy retrofitting into numerous brands of winders, offering the benefits of standardized parts. Converting to ESP’s automatic system affords the benefits of trim management, unlimited set pattern memory and computer software that is easy-to-use, and can be integrated into your mill-wide systems.

  • Tidland Edge-Trim

    Reduce waste and increase productivity with Tidland’s Edge-Trim, a self-contained shear slitting unit for continuously moving flexible webs. Blade setup time is virtually eliminated during trim changes by quickly repositioning the knife pair (upper and lower blades) simultaneously, without disturbing the slit geometry to maintain the highest level of trim quality.

    The Edge-Trim is available in manual or automated configurations.

    Additional Options Available
    Integration: Can be configured to run from customer’s PC via stand-alone program or an existing Human Machine Interface (i.e. RsView32, Wonderware).
    Automated Controls: User-friendly, intuitive operations and touch-screen controls, highly accurate absolute web width patterns, incremental positioning, position accuracy of ± 0.2 mm.

  • DMS Digital Measurement System

    Tidland’s affordable Digital Measurement System is an extremely accurate and reliable method of measuring slitter knife positions. This easy to use system reduces operator error and greatly speeds up re-positioning times. For slit widths 508 mm (20 inches) and longer, accuracy is within ± 0.18 mm (0.007 inch), and for slit widths under 20 inches (508 mm), accuracy increases to ± 0.10 mm (0.004 inch) or better.

    The Digital Measurement System is simple to install, requiring standard 110V power plus 80 psi (5.5 bar) minimum filtered air supply. It permanently mounts between existing machine frames using two end-mounting blocks supplied with the unit. And the electronic display can be mounted at any position on the machine.
