Achenbach OPTIFOIL Jumboslit® Slitter

- the specialized slitter for all large-roll slitting tasks

Achenbach slitting machines type JumboSlit serve for slitting thin aluminium as well as copper and brass foils or compound materials to small strips of minimum 10 mm width; they are tailored to the specific operation purpose. For each new foil slitting machine or those to be modernized, a holistic approach to perfectly sychronize mechanics, hydraulics, automation and drive technology in their complex interaction is applied.

The cloud-based platform Achenbach OPTILINK® opens the way to the overall system networking of the various value creation stages and therefore to the optimization of the entire production process.
