Knowledge You Need to Know While Using a Slitting Machine

In News by TXadminLeave a Comment

Slitting is a metal fabrication process in which a coil of material, such as aluminum or steel, is cut to the length and width specified for the final application. As the material passes through the machine, steel rollers move through extremely sharp circular blades, making cuts. To make a slice, a considerable compressive force must be applied – when the pressure exceeds the tensile strength of the material, it slices. The final product is a long strip of material cut to the buyer’s specifications. For metal processing service suppliers, they always need slitting lines. Here comes some tips on the knowledge and facts you need to pay special attention to while using a slitting line and slitting machine.

Steel slitting machine consists of three main parts: uncoiler, slitter, and rewinder. To ensure the quality of the optimization process, each element must be precisely aligned during setup. In order to improve the efficiency and ensure the slitting machine working properly, the operators should pay special attention to the following aspects while using a slitting machine.

First, the operating environment of the slitting machine

In order to improve the service life of CNC equipment in the slitting line, it is generally required to avoid heat radiation such as direct sunlight, and do not place it in a place with humidity, excessive dust, or corrosive gas.

Moreover, corrosive gases can easily corrode and deteriorate electronic components, resulting in poor contact or short circuit between components, affecting the normal operation of equipment. Precision CNC equipment must have a good production environment, and try to stay away from those machines with relatively large vibrations.

Second, Power Requirements

Whether in slitting lines or in other CNC machinery, the proper and stable power supply is very important. Stable power supply equipment is the premise of the stable operation of equipment. Therefore, we generally need to add a voltage regulator to the power supply to reduce the fluctuation of the power supply voltage.

Third, Operation Specifications

Operation specification is one of the important measures to ensure the safe operation of the slitting machine. Operators must follow operating procedures. When the machine fails, the operator should record the situation on the spot, take pictures and keep it, and truthfully explain the situation before and after the failure to the maintenance personnel. Doing so will help analyze and diagnose the cause of the failure, and eliminate it in time.

In addition, the slitter is not suitable for long-term storage. After purchasing the slitting machine, make full use of it, especially in the first year of operation, so that the weak links that are prone to failure are exposed as soon as possible and eliminated within the warranty period.

When there is no processing task, the slitting machine should be energized regularly, preferably 1-2 times a week, and dry running for about 1 hour each time. The heat generated by the machine tool is used to reduce the humidity inside the machine tool so that the electronic components will not get wet. At the same time, it can also find out whether a battery alarm occurs in time to prevent the loss of system software and parameters.
