FEBA Srl Converting Machinery, a well-respected Milanese firm with over 40 years of experience, manufactures a complete range of fully automatic multi-shaft log slitters & double knife lathe slitting systems for high volume converting of adhesive and double sided adhesive tapes, foam tapes, PVC dielectric tapes, fiber reinforced tapes, polyester tapes, protection films, graphite, roofing membranes, textiles, laminates & similar products.
Available with two or four shafts using a single or twin blade configuration, the FEBA Multi-Shaft Automatic Log Slitters automatically center the blade in relation to the outside diameter of the roll being slit (via sonar), automatically positioning the blade (via laser), regardless of its diameter, or how much has been removed during the grinding process, which is critical for the correct usage of an automatic blade axis angle and a CNC system. The benefit of these standard features is the cutting blade will automatically increase its penetration speed into the shaft when its diameter decreases during sharpening. Now, the operator only has to load the log or logs (manually or semi-automatically via the “Easy Load” trolley), recall the desired program, and hit the start button. The FEBA multi-shaft lathe slitters will not only slash cycle times when loading different diameters of material, but also when the operator has to change blades.
The First Truly Automatic Slitting Cycle – FEBA Revolutionizes Log Converting
Having constructed over 2000 various types of single & multi-shaft lathe slitters for converters & manufacturers of adhesive and non-adhesive tapes, FEBA prides themselves in offering their customers the most up to date & technically efficient production machinery. Its solid connections with industrial automation & electronic engineers in the Northern region of Italy have allowed FEBA to adapt a technology from the industrial transportation field (EMDS) and applied it to the mechanical & electrical efficiency of their log slitting line thus effectively removing mechanical servicing & lubrication from the most critical portions of an automatic log slitter.
EMDS stands for Electro Magnetic Displacement System and this technology has allowed FEBA to produce the world’s first fully automatic “no intervention” slitting operation on a lathe slitting machine. The new EMDS has allowed FEBA to introduce a Top Level Specification for its lathe slitters and this specification sees the removal of lead screws and pistons for both the head traverse and penetration movements. EMDS actually lifts the slitting head and moves it to the next slitting position, faster than lead screws, without any mechanical inertia. The EMDS has also been fitted to perform the slitting action and has been found to be extremely successful on dealing with High Density Automotive Foams at narrow slit widths as well as mid yardage filmic tapes – 19,000 rolls in 8 hours achieved on the 4L-400 model while slitting logs of mid yardage Polyester Tape down to 12mm.
Technology, versatility, quality & service are what set FEBA Converting Machinery Srl above their competition. Quality & design made in Italy.
